The Beer Institute, representing America’s brewers, beer importers and industry suppliers has named Denise Dunckel VP of public affairs, effective Sept. 14.
She will lead the Beer Institute’s public affairs strategy directed at policymakers, the media, the alcohol beverage industry and other stakeholders.
Dunckel previously served as SVP, external affairs, with Blackstone’s Invitation Homes. In that position, Dunckel was responsible for managing external affairs for the nation's largest single-family rental company.
Dunckel has also held communications positions with the U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and The White House, as well as a number of presidential campaigns.
“Denise is a proven leader in strategic communications,” said Beer Institute President and CEO Jim McGreevy in a statement. “Her contributions will be critical in our efforts to tell the story of beer in Washington, DC and educate lawmakers and the public about beer’s $253 billion economic impact in the United States.”
