Mr. Bell has also played a pivotal role overseeing and driving shareholder value across JAB’s portfolio companies, including in strategy, financing and business development. Mr. Bell will continue to be based in Washington, D.C., and continue to focus on growing core elements of JAB’s portfolio, with particular focus on North America. He currently serves as a Director for several of JAB’s portfolio companies, including Krispy Kreme, Panera Bread, and NVA.

The creation of the Senior Partner position is another step in fulfilling this responsibility. David and Joachim are proven leaders who have played integral roles in building the firm over the past 10 years, and we are delighted to welcome them as Senior Partners.”
