Struggling Second Cup revamps board, brings back familiar faces

Canadian coffee chain The Second Cup Ltd. is radically revamping its board of directors, adding a sense of urgency to its multi-year turnaround plan.

The chain appointed Michael Bregman as its new chairman, giving Second Cup’s one-time boy wonder another shot as head of the board of directors. Mr. Bregman’s board shuffle includes bringing on Alton McEwen, who previously served as the company’s chief executive officer from 2000 to 2004.
