The Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA) has appointed Miles Beale as its new chief executive, effective June. Gavin Partington will continue as interim chief executive until then.

He has worked across a broad range of public policy, including urban regeneration and social exclusion, and has been involved in significant negotiations at national and European level. He has also worked closely with senior Ministers in successive governments.
WSTA chairman Tim How said: "I am very pleased to welcome Miles to the WSTA. He brings with him extensive experience across government, which will help the industry navigate a broad range of policy issues impacting the sector at both UK and EU level."
Beale said: "I am delighted to be joining the WSTA team and look forward to supporting its members and the wine and spirits industry to maintain and improve its dialogue with government. Together we can chart an effective course between responsibility, growth and consumer choice."
