Alberto’s multi-cultural career is spent building iconic brands in global and start-up company settings across Europe, Latin America, and the US, as well as taking on a breadth of roles spanning country, regional, and global accountabilities.

Before joining Sanofi, Alberto was the Chief Marketing and Innovation Officer of Dyla Brands (participated by Keurig Dr Pepper) where he accelerated growth and notably implemented innovation and communication strategies that doubled the company’s revenue in 12 months. Prior to this, he spent 17 years at Nestle where his last role was Vice President of Marketing for Gerber Products Company, responsible for leading the most ambitious repositioning project for the Baby Food brand which resulted in bringing back this iconic brand to consumption growth and share gains after several years of decline.

Relocated to Paris after living internationally for nearly 15 years, Alberto is re-discovering the joy of cross-country family road trips across Europe and further bonding his two US-born young children, Amelia and Lucas, to his Spanish heritage.
