Dear Client:

Robert previously served as a member of Constellation’s board of directors from February 2013 to April 2019. He resigned from the board before accepting his new role.

Robert joins the company from outside the bev alc industry, but he has “extensive” experience in the CPG category. Most recently, he was ceo at John Hardy Global Limited, a global luxury jewelry brand. Before that, he worked as ceo at American Eagle Outfitters and global brand president at Levi Strauss & Co.

“Constellation’s wine & spirits strategy and portfolio of brands is highly aligned with evolving consumer trends and has tremendous potential and a very bright future ahead. I look forward to working with Bill Newlands and the rest of the team to capitalize on the opportunity that lies ahead and help drive the next phase of growth at Constellation,” says Robert.

Until later,
Sarah
