Robert (Rob) Sands has been President and CEO of Constellation since 2007. His father founded the company in 1945, when the American wine industry consisted mainly of dessert wine shipped in bulk and bottled like milk. The business has transformed since then, as Constellation has become the #1 multi-category beverage alcohol supplier in the U.S. with over 9,000 employees and $7.3 billion in sales.
Rob transferred to Harley for high school, proudly graduating with the class of 1976. Here, he reflects on how the school’s philosophy around lifelong learning makes Harley a unique environment.
