Episode 91: Constellation Brands, A Legacy of Pushing Boundaries

In this episode, Matt talks to Mallika Monteiro, EVP, and Chief Growth & Strategy Officer at Constellation Brands. Mallika joined Constellation in 2016 as vice president of beer innovation. Leveraging consumer insights, Mallika spearheaded the acceleration of the beer innovation portfolio – most notably, with the development and launch of Corona Premier. Mallika was promoted to senior vice president and chief growth officer in 2018, where she led the development and launch of a number of new product introductions across beer, wine and spirits, including Corona Refresca, Robert Mondavi Private Selection bourbon barrel aged wines, and SVEDKA Rosé. She also served as chief of staff to the company’s executive management committee and was a driving force behind the company’s Focus on Female Founders program, designed to invest $100 million in female-founded or female-owned start-ups in the beverage alcohol space over the next 10 years.

She has over a decade of experience in the beverage alcohol industry in strategy, brand marketing and innovation. Prior to joining Constellation, Mallika was a senior marketing director leading brand and innovation strategy at Anheuser Busch Inbev, and a senior brand manager at Beam Suntory.
