Longtime Starbucks boss Howard Schultz is delaying his second departure from the coffeehouse chain until late March 2023 rather than this fall as originally announced, the company said in a statement Monday.
Having stepped down four years earlier, in 2018, Schultz returned in April to serve as interim CEO during the search for a new leader.
He said at a quarterly results presentation in early May that he intended to leave the post at the end of this year.
But the company said in a statement Monday that the board of directors has reached an agreement with the 69-year-old for him to stay on as the company’s head until the end of March 2023.
