SEATTLE – Scott Maw, executive vice president and CFO at Starbucks Corp., will retire from the company on Nov. 30.

Maw joined Starbucks in 2011 as a global controller, and later worked as senior vice president of corporate finance. He was promoted to executive vice president and CFO in February 2014.

Before joining Starbucks, Maw was CFO at SeaBright Insurance Co. and earlier was CFO of consumer banking at JPMorgan Chase, CFO of retail banking at Washington Mutual and CFO of the insurance division at General Electric.

He received a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Gonzaga Univ.

“I am grateful for the contributions Scott has made over the past seven years that led to the unprecedented growth of Starbucks,” said Kevin Johnson, president and CEO of Starbucks. “As we enter our next phase of continued growth, I am confident in the finance team Scott has developed and am appreciative of his willingness to support through the transition into new leadership.”

Starbucks said it has initiated an external search for a new CFO. Maw has agreed to continue in a senior consultant role through March 2019.
