A Message from Sarah Langley, SVP Chief People, Culture and Communications Officer at Suntory Global Spirits


As a global premium spirits leader with beloved iconic brands, our values are deep-rooted and every day we aspire to live our purpose to ‘Inspire the Brilliance of Life’ in everything we do. This includes creating a workplace where our employees can thrive, working together to Unleash Their Spirit and realize their full potential. We are proud to be part of the larger Suntory Group, which brings with it the chance for exciting, diverse career opportunities across our businesses. When you’re on our team, you can build a career path of personal and professional growth in a variety of functions, business units and geographies around the globe.


Our ambition is to become the World’s Most Admired Premium Spirits Company. We want to be Most Admired not only for the iconic brands we craft, but also for the brilliant experiences we foster, the ways in which we bring people together, and for the positive impact we have on the world around us.


And it is more than just a job when we live our values of Growing for Good, Yatte Minahare and Giving Back to Society. It is the daily reflection of the vision of Suntory Chairman Saji who in 1973 said, “Corporations do not simply exist to create and sell things. As a member of society, we must establish our company’s reason for being so we can contribute to society.”  


We approach our work with compassion, embracing inclusion and driving to deliver sustainable growth across our business and long-term commitments through Proof Positive. This includes increasing representation, reaching gender parity in our global leadership, creating economic opportunities for diverse suppliers and supporting stronger, more resilient communities. At Suntory Global Spirits, the possibilities for growth never stop.


Our global team is comprised of people who come from different countries, cultures, languages and backgrounds. We know our differences enrich us and inspire us to elevate our craft. But what do we have in common? We are all brand builders. Stewards of our legendary whiskies, heritage tequilas and ready-to-drink cocktails, with a shared dedication to delivering brilliant experiences.  


It’s through strong, human-centric leadership that we will reach our ambition together – inspiring action, providing direction, instilling purpose and creating an environment where our people can succeed. We are always evolving. Always creating. Always learning from each other. We observe the finest details with enthusiasm, and we delight in crafting the exceptional, from seed to sip.


That’s the magic of Suntory Global Spirits.
