The president of Dunkin' Donuts, William Kussell, is to leave the company at the end of the year.

Nigel Travis, the company's chief executive, will then also become its president.

Dunkin' Donuts - the chain famous for its filled doughnuts - is owned by Dunkin' Brands, which also owns Baskin Robbins.

Dunkin' Donuts has more than 8,800 restaurants in 31 countries. In 2008, its global sales were $5.5bn (£3.46bn).

"This has not been an easy decision for me to make given my passion for the Dunkin' Donuts brand, but it is the right decision for me as I look to the next stage of my career," Mr Kussell said.
