Bacardi’s Sarah Nichols steps into the role of acting Managing Director today as Mauricio Vergara leaves the office to take up the role of President and Chief Operating Officer at PATRÓN.
Marketing Director since April this year, Nichols expects she will stay in the role for the next few months until Bacardi global announces the new permanent Managing Director.
“At this point in time, Bacardi Global are reviewing final applicants and the announcement will be forthwith in the coming weeks,” said Nichols.
“It is a great honour and privilege to act as an interim managing director for Bacardi and to continue to drive the legacy that Mauricio has left,” she said.
Nichols was appointed to the Drinks Association Board in September.
