“We are so pleased to welcome Todd to Bacardi and look forward to his contributions to our long-term strategy and to our ongoing efforts to strengthen our unique Bacardi culture. From the beginning, we were impressed with his passion for developing teams and his commitment to being a positive and purposeful business leader and partner,” says Mahesh Madhavan, Chief Executive Officer of Bacardi Limited. “Todd understands and appreciates how legacy brands, like our 158-year-old business, maintain relevance and connection generation after generation while always staying true to who you are and what you stand for.”

Grice brings a truly global perspective, with international, regional, and country-level experience in emerging and mature markets. His career at Coca-Cola took him to market and functional roles based in London, Tokyo, Shanghai, Atlanta, along with a board leadership role for the business in Africa. As a family-owned business with a strong company culture, equally appealing to Bacardi was Grice’s work at Coca-Cola to embed purpose, values, vision, and mission throughout the company’s business practices and policies.

“I’ve always admired the global, premium brands under the Bacardi company and have such a strong regard for how a family-owned business maintains a passion for its people, its business and its brands while spanning decades of industry leadership,” says Grice. “I’m excited to join Bacardi and its legacy of a people-first culture, innovative thinking, and a commitment to growth, all while never losing sight of doing the right thing.”

Grice will relocate to Bermuda pending authorization by the Bermuda Immigration Authority.
