Hale replaces Matt Stanton, who left earlier this year. Stanton is now VP of global public policy at sportswear company Under Armour. 

Hale joins Beam Suntory from Yum! Brands, where he is VP of global government relations. He assumes his new role on 12 September. At Yum!, Hale has been responsible for conducting global government relations on behalf of the KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell brands. 

"Brett brings to Beam Suntory an impressive career of public policy engagement with lawmakers, regulators and coalitions in regulated industry environments," said Clarkson Hine, SVP - corporate communications & public affairs at Beam Suntory. "With his experience in Kentucky, Washington and globally, Brett will be a key leader for us as we confront our public affairs challenges and opportunities as a company and as an industry."

Hale will be based at Beam Suntory's offices in Louisville, Kentucky and will report to Hine. 

Last month, Beam's parent company Suntory Holdings posted a big jump in profits for its alcoholic beverages despite a slight fall in sales.
