Sylvia is a fourth-generation San Franciscan who grew up skiing the slopes of Squaw Valley near Lake Tahoe. She has over twelve years of experience in the wine and spirits industry, starting at E. & J. Gallo Winery and most recently at Constellation where she was the Global Director of Marketing, Imports. She has a proven track record of driving growth on existing brands, and launching and building successful new brands such as Mi CAMPO Tequila and Cooper & Thief Red Blend.
Brand strategy and leadership are not the only values Sylvia brings to the team: she's a transparent and inclusive communicator who is known for creating a positive team environment. Sylvia holds a B.A. from U.C. Berkeley and an M.B.A in Marketing from UCLA Anderson. She has a Wine & Spirits Education Trust Level 2 certification, is fluent in French and conversational in Italian. Her passions are downhill skiing and traveling the world (39 countries and counting!). When she's not on the slopes or traveling, Sylvia likes to spend her time geeking out the New York Times crossword puzzle, reading Psychology books or baking bread. She is currently in the process of moving to the Tahoe area with her family.
