Constellation Brands Announces New and Expanded Responsibilities for Executives Jim Sabia and Mallika Monteiro


Jim Sabia assumes new role of Managing Director, Beer Division; 
Mallika Monteiros role expanded to Chief Growth, Strategy and Digital Officer


VICTOR, N.Y., Feb. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Constellation Brands, Inc. (NYSE:STZ and STZ.B), a leading beverage alcohol company, today announced new and expanded responsibilities for two members of its Executive Management Committee, effective March 1, 2021. Jim Sabia, who has served as Constellations Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer since 2018, has assumed the newly created role of Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Beer Division, with responsibility for leading the divisions operations services and commercial business functions. Constellations Chief Marketing Officer role will remain open in the near-term, but given the importance of this role to the companys long-term growth aspirations, Constellation will look to fill this position over time. Mallika Monteiro will assume expanded responsibilities as Executive Vice President and Chief Growth, Strategy and Digital Officer. In addition to her current responsibilities leading the companys growth and strategy functions, she will assume added responsibility for leading the companys media initiatives, including digital marketing, 3-Tier ecommerce, and Constellation Ventures (which focuses on investing in early stage start-ups in the beverage alcohol space and adjacent categories).


Our company has had a great deal of success over the past decade, and we have bold ambitions for the future as well, said Bill Newlands, Constellations president and CEO. To achieve our long-term aspirations, it is critical that we continue to invest in broadening the knowledge, perspective and capabilities of our leaders. These moves will help us do just that. Both Mallika and Jim will continue to work closely with the rest of our executive management committee to further build on our success.


Sabia joined Constellation Brands in 2007 as Vice President, Marketing for the companys spirits business. He was promoted to Chief Marketing Officer of Constellations beer division in 2009 and to Executive Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer for Constellations full portfolio in 2018. Under Sabias leadership, growth trends for the companys beer portfolio significantly outpaced the U.S. beer market and, upon the assumption of responsibilities for the full portfolio, he played an instrumental role in the transformation of the companys Wine & Spirits business, working to build consumer affinity for the companys premium portfolio of powerhouse wine and spirits brands.


We have some of the most iconic, consumer-loved brands in the industry, and the very best teams behind them, said Sabia. I look forward to continuing to work with the team to drive a consumer-obsessed mindset across our business as we progress towards our long-term growth aspirations.


Monteiro joined Constellation Brands in 2016 as Vice President, Beer Innovation, and has gone on to hold a number of roles with increasing leadership responsibility across consumer and category insights, innovation and new product development across beer, wine and spirits, as well as leading the companys strategy development and business transformation functions.


Monteiro has made significant contributions to help strengthen the companys innovation process, including leading the development of one of Constellations most successful new product launches in Corona Hard Seltzer, and was a driving force behind the companys Focus on Female Founders program, designed to invest $100 million in female-founded or female-owned start-ups in the beverage alcohol space by 2028. In 2019, Monteiro was promoted to Executive Vice President and Chief Growth & Strategy Officer, where she has served as a member of Constellations Executive Management Committee.


We must be agile to stay ahead of shifting consumer behavior, said Monteiro. This requires us to continue building an organization with best-in-class capabilities to anticipate, meet and engage with consumers where theyre headed, whether thats in digital channels or by exploring disruptive brands in emerging categories. Im excited to work with our teams to drive our big ambitions in these areas.
