Bacardi Ltd, the world’s largest privately held spirits company, has promoted Dmitry “Dima” Ivanov to Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Bacardi and President of Bacardi Global Brands.

He also will serve as a member of the Bacardi Global leadership team and report to Bacardi Ltd Chief Executive Officer Mike Dolan.

Mr Ivanov most recently served as the Vice President – Global Category Director of Rums responsible for the marketing vision and premium positioning of the Bacardi portfolio of rums including the iconic and namesake BACARDÍ rum brand.

Previously, Mr Ivanov was Managing Director for the country operations of Bacardi in Russia. Under his leadership, the portfolio of Bacardi brands experienced tremendous growth ─ BACARDÍ rum became the fastest-growing rum brand in Russia, MARTINI took the top spot as the #1 vermouth and sparkling wine brand in the country, and WILLIAM LAWSON’S ranked as the #1 whisky brand in both value and volume in Russia. He started his career with Bacardi in 2005 as Marketing Director for the portfolio of premium products in Russia in charge of marketing strategies and execution of all brand activities in the country. He previously worked for Red Bull Russia as Marketing Director, as well as held various marketing and brand management roles of varying responsibility with Pepsi Bottling Group and Procter & Gamble in Russia.

“Having led the BACARDÍ rum brand reinvention and built a strong, results-driven marketing team for Bacardi rums, I look forward to achieving the same accomplishments in this new global role for all our iconic brands, as well as bringing our marketing capabilities to the top-class level,” says Mr Ivanov.

Mr Ivanov succeeds Mr. Andy J. Gibson, who will leave Bacardi at the end of March to ensure a smooth transition.
