Chief Executive Officer
Bacardi Limited

Leading Bacardi through the next chapter in our story after seven generations is a great privilege and a big responsibility? Mahesh calls it the ‘best job in the world’.

After two decades championing and growing the company across multiple continents, Mahesh has immersed himself in the Bacardi culture and defined what modern leadership should be like in our industry.

He was immensely proud to be made Chief Executive Officer in September 2017, having most recently been Regional President in Europe.

Before that, he excelled in leading roles within various emerging markets including Asia, Middle East & Africa (AMEA), India, Thailand, the Philippines, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.

Mahesh works out of the global headquarters of Bacardi in Hamilton, Bermuda.
