SV Ranganath was appointed as the interim board chairman of Coffee Day Enterprises during the CCD board meeting on Wednesday. The decision was taken after CCD owner VG Siddartha’s body was recovered from the Nethravati River early on Wednesday morning.

In another significant decision, Nitin Bagmane was appointed as the interim COO of Coffee Day Enterprises. Coffee Day Enterprises is the parent company of CCD chain of restaurants.

A CCD board meeting was called on Wednesday morning at CCD headquarters in Bengaluru after the confirmation came of CCD owner VG Siddartha’s death. The board met to discuss the future of CCD after the death of VG Siddhartha, founder and MD of the company.
