The Hershey Company (Hershey’s) has named Rebecca Wong as Director World Travel Retail (WTR), effective 1 January 2023.

Rebecca brings over 20 years of commercial experience with leading confectionary suppliers to the post.

She joined Hershey’s in 2016 as a Business Manager in Europe and, just three years later, became the Team Lead for Europe and Global Accounts.

She will replace Steve Bentz, who is retiring after more than a decade spent leading the travel retail team.

His work has been a driving force in establishing the company in the channel, building a global reach for the core brands of Reese’s, Kisses and Hershey’s, and creating a team focused on establishing long term partnerships with retailers around the world.

The Hershey Company’s Hershey’s Ice Cream Shoppe Candy Bars Gift Box was named a finalist in the 2022 Asia Pacific Travel Retail Awards in the ‘Best Confectionery & Fine Foods Product’ category.
