Brent Toevs

LOS ANGELES -- Jammin Java has announced the appointment of Brent Toevs as chief executive officer. He succeeds Anh Tran, who moves up to president and chief operating officer. Toevs also will join Jammin Java's board.

Toevs brings more than a quarter-century of experience to his new post. Most recently he was a principal of National Coffee Service & Vending (Lake Worth, FL), a nationwide master brokerage. He founded NCS&V after gaining extensive sales and operational experience. He originally joined Take A Break/Arbuckle Coffee (Ottawa, ON, Canada) as a sales associate, and went on to become president. Toevs assisted the company in becoming one of the first Keurig authorized distributors. Later, as vice-president of sales for USRefresh, he was responsible for building its office coffee service business to a $50 million annual level.

NCS&V will continue under the leadership of cofounder Rick Dutkiewicz.

At NCS&V, he was instrumental in forming an agreement to bring Timothy's Coffee K-Cups to the U.S. market. He also spearheaded the distributorship's involvement in coffee pods and pod brewers.

Toevs sees a bright future for Jammin Java, which recently assumed all distribution functions for Marley Coffee. "I've been following this company for the past year and these guys have been the talk of the coffee industry," he said.

Jammin Java chairman Rohan Marley observed, "Brent's deep industry knowledge and reputation in the coffee business will allow him to work together with us to take Jammin Java to the next level."

Jammin Java was founded in 2004. Led by Rohan Marley and his sister Karen, son and daughter of legendary singer-songwriter Bob Marley, the company provides premium roasted coffee to the office coffee service and hospitality industries, as well as retail channels. It says it's committed to ethical and sustainable coffee distribution.
