Constellation Research Inc, an emerging and disruptive technologies research and advisory firm, announced that Alexandre Mesquita has joined as a Vice President of Sales for Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Mesquita brings over 15 years of experience in sales, consulting, and marketing. Specifically, he has proven experience in selling independent research and end user advisory services in this region to support strategic business decisions at US$1B+ organizations.
Mesquita will engage with both buy side and sell side clients. His responsibilities will include:
- Managing business development and sales efforts in Spain, Portugal and Latin America
- Establishing partnerships between companies and Constellation’s expert knowledge base
- Helping organizations accomplish their business objectives around Mobile, Software, BI, SCM, ERP, PBS, CRM, Collaboration, Analytics, UC, Gov 2.0 and Social.
Prior to his current role, Mesquita was a Sr. Consultant at Saleforce.com, where he supported the direct sales team at organizations with more than 1,000 employees in Latin America. Before that, he was a Regional Director for this region at Forrester Research, where he built a team of Country Managers (Brazil, Argentina, Colombia and Mexico) and Associates, managed marketing actions, the P&L and finally, worked with the vertical and horizontal research teams to incorporate the local knowledge.
“I’m looking forward to working with one of the most renown and experienced collection of disruptive technology analysts. Building out Constellation’s presence in the Spain, Portugal, and Latin American markets won’t be easy but I’m up to the challenge. We’ll be partnering with our buy side clients to craft the right mix of research and services that meet the local requirements. As a global organization, our goal is to meet the local needs, not dictate an arrogant and specific regional view that many legacy analyst firms often enter the market with.”
Before Forrester, Mesquita was an Alliance Manager at IBM, the same position also held at PwC Consulting, where he managed strategic alliances with Intel, Oracle, Siebel, SAP, HP, Microsoft, and other IT service vendors like Stefanini.

“Alexandre’s ability to bring a cross-cultural point of view will help us find the right mix of disruptive technology research and pragmatic advice for this rapidly growing region. Mesquita’s legendary ability to craft long-term strategic relationships with buy side clients will help us grow the business and I’m looking forward to his operational expertise to help take us to the next level. ” noted R “Ray” Wang, Principal Analyst and CEO.
