Bacardi Limited has appointed Stefan Bomhard to the role of regional president of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). He is to be responsible for this area’s commercial operations.

Bomhard joins Bacardi from Kraft Foods where he was president for Kraft’s European coffee business, based in Zurich. He will join Bacardi on October 1 and will be based in Geneva, Switzerland. Bomhard will also be a member of the Bacardi Leadership Team.

Talking the challenges of cocktail weeks

Having recently returned from the US visiting both Oakland and Arizona Cocktail Weeks I was amazed by the differences in approach. In Oakland there was a much bigger trade focus and it felt more relaxed, whereas in Arizona it was one massive party for consumers.
