Another executive in North America is quitting Bacardi

Bacardi has confirmed the pending departure of another senior executive in North America, with its US sales director set to quit the firm.

Having announced today that Robert Furniss-Roe, the president for the North America region, is set to leave in the coming months, Bacardi also said today that Derek Hopkins, SVP, national sales director for Bacardi USA, is standing down. Rich Andrews, Bacardi's UK & Ireland MD, will assume Hopkins' responsibilities when he transitions to the position of VP commercial for North America next month.

Hopkins, who joined Bacardi from The Coca-Cola Co in 2011, “has agreed to help with a transition”.

Andrews moved to Bacardi in 2003 from The Lego Co, initially as VP of sales in Canada, before becoming country president for Canada in 2007.
