Constellation Brands has created a new production and supply officer position.

The company, which last week acquired Fortune Brands' US wine operations, announced today (19 November) that Dave Moynihan will assume the position of senior vice president, chief production and supply officer with global responsibilities.

Moynihan will move from his former post of senior vice president for Constellation's supply chain, and will report to Keith Wilson, executive vice president and chief administrative officer.

"In his new role, Dave will build upon a solid foundation of operational excellence by indentifying and adopting best practices across all production areas throughout Constellation's business," said Wilson.

Moynihan joined Constellation in 1996 and has held a variety of production and operations positions.
