Co-founder, Peter’s Yard
Wendy Wilson-Bettn loves developing brands, businesses and people.
For 22 years she worked at Cadbury Schweppes in Brand Management, Category Management, Innovation and General Management. Her last role was Global Commercial Capability Director on the Cadbury Schweppes Global Leadership Team.
She said she would leave when she stopped learning and 13 years ago, she left to do something she had always dreamed of, which was to run her own business.
Together with her business partner, Ian Tencor, she built the business from scratch leading to the employment of over 40 bright, capable people which makes both Ian and Wendy very proud.
The business continues to grow and flourish and in July 2022 Lotus Bakeries purchased Peter’s Yard and have exciting plans for its future growth.
She is equally proud to be Co-Owner of Söderberg, a Swedish bakery café business with eight retail outlets offering great coffee, Swedish pastries and an inviting space to relax and enjoy the company of loved ones and friends.
Wendy likes to support other managers and entrepreneurs who can learn a little from the highs and lows she’s experienced on her journey.
