Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR) appears to have found a heavyweight to fill the CEO position to be exited by Lawrence Blanford. Brian Kelley's name has been bandied about as a possible successor at Coca-Cola and the exec cut his teeth at both Ford and General Electric. The hire also adds a bit of stability heading into GMCR's earnings release next week with the last two quarterly reports from the company sparking some trading fireworks.
