Ricardo will lead the SIA function at Constellation, leveraging data and consumer-centric thinking to inspire what is next for Constellation’s brands, innovations, channels, and investments.
Constellation’s SIA team serves as an internal strategic consulting and execution partner providing actionable insights, counsel, and data to the organization in alignment with the consumer-led decision making that is foundational to the business. This function is part of the larger Growth, Strategy & Digital organization focused on driving innovation, delivering on current and future trends through consumer insights, and enabling industry-leading digital transformation.

Dalmas brings significant consumer and corporate strategy, insights and analytics, and brand and commercial leadership experience to the role. He joins Constellation from Nestle USA where he led the Consumer & Marketplace Insights team responsible for insights and analytics across the company’s U.S. food and beverage divisions with household name brands. Dalmas also led Strategic Initiatives at Ventas Inc., a real estate investment trust with a diversified portfolio, and held previous leadership roles at McDonald’s and PepsiCo.
