Constellation Brands is switching its Canada president

Constellation Brands has lined up a replacement for the head of its Canadian unit after the incumbent said he is stepping down.

Ben Dollard will take over as president from Eric Morham on 1 March, Constellation said in a statement late yesterday (14 January). Morham will leave on 31 May after a handover period.

Morham became Constellation Canadian head in 2009 and has spent 40 years in the alcohol industry.

Dollard, who joined Constellation in 2001, is a Constellation senior VP and has previously worked with Robert Mondavi and Inniskillin brands, the company said.

“He brings significant knowledge of the international business to the leadership role and will be an asset to our Canadian business,” Constellation COO Jay Wright said.

Last week Constellation revealed it had slowed a profits slide in Q3 results and said it expects to hit its full-year targets.
