CARMEL, IN / ACCESSWIRE / December 21, 2021 / Jim Carpenter, Founder, President and CEO of Wild Birds Unlimited, Inc., announced today organizational leadership changes at the Franchisor’s Franchise Support Center.

Paul Pickett, former Chief Development Officer, has been promoted to Executive Vice President along with his CDO role.

Included in the leadership changes is the planned retirement in the summer of 2022 of Pat Perkinson, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

“I am so sorry to see Pat leave after her 26 years of dedication to the Wild Birds Unlimited (WBU) family,” said Carpenter. “She has done an amazing job of helping to make WBU one of the best franchise operators in the world. Our franchise store owners and the staff here at the WBU Franchise Support Center are going to miss her tremendously. She is truly a model of our WBU Mission, Vision and Values and has helped to bring joy into so many customers’ lives.”

To ensure a smooth transition after Perkinson’s departure, Amy Moore, former President of Retail Concepts, has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Retail Concepts and will also serve as co-COO with Perkinson until her departure, at which time Moore will become SVP/COO.
