Meet K.C.

K.C. Kavanagh

Senior Vice President and Global Chief Communications Officer

Can you imagine overseeing communications for the world’s largest private spirits company, including 200 brands and labels?

That’s the enormous challenge K.C. takes on every day ‒ but it’s one she loves!

In addition to influencing how the world sees us and our fabulous family of brands, she also looks after our corporate and brand archives which preserve the legacy of some of the world’s most iconic brands, a few that date back hundreds of years.

Before joining Bacardi in 2016, K.C. led global communications for Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc. and the Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

She now lives in Hamilton, Bermuda with her beautiful family and enjoys morning runs on the beach with her dog, when she isn’t jetting to different parts of the Bacardi world.


I adore a MARTINI® Negroni cocktail – it always feels like an elevated choice.”


The evening we set up our new home in Bermuda, my husband and I sat by the pool overlooking the ocean and clinked our glasses of freshly made PATRÓN® Paloma with fresh lime juice and a ruby red slice of grapefruit. Our whole world – and our drinks — felt fresh, colourful and refreshing.”
