Angostura Holdings Limited announced yesterday that Genevieve Jodhan has been confirmed as the company’s Chief Executive Officer, a position that she had been acting in since September 2016.

In a statement, Angostura said before her appointment as the company’s top executive, Jodhan led the company’s international sales and marketing division as its executive manager.

In her new role, Mrs. Jodhan will lead Angostura’s executive management team, and support the board of directors on the company’s strategic business and growth strategies as well as other key decisions.

“Genevieve has the experience and track record of delivering results and has proven leadership. She spearheaded our international sales growth increasing market share and sales of our signature rums and bitters in Europe, Asia and Australia and has directed the development of the brands in many emerging markets including Russia, Czech Republic, and Armenia. Dr. Balgobin added that the Board is confident that the new CEO would lead and execute Angostura’s vision to expand globally,” said Angostura chairman Rolph Balgobin in the statement.

Mrs. Jodhan said it was an honour to be appointed CEO.

“I am both humbled and honoured to be appointed CEO. I have been with the Company for close to a decade and my commitment has always been to Angostura’s people, products and values. I am keen to build on the long outstanding achievement of our manufacturing business, through the execution of forward looking business strategies that add to the customer experience, and build on our shareholders’ value.

Jodhan assumed her new role on Tuesday. She has three children and is the first woman to head one of Trinidad and Tobago’s largest manufacturing companies, outside of the energy sectors.
