The Wavegarden Scotland Team

Andy Hadden – Managing Director

Andy is a local surfer and businessman, and it’s his vision that has spearheaded the Wavegarden project since 2012. A Chartered Surveyor, Andy worked in Birmingham specialising in Insolvency, and then Edinburgh specialising in Investment. Andy recently raised equity to start a co-working and self-storage business in his home town of North Berwick called the Lighthouse, which is now operating successfully. Having started both Wavegarden and Lighthouse businesses from scratch, Andy’s pro-active, relationship-based and future-facing approach is key to his success, but it’s the potential for improving the nations physical and mental health through surfing that keeps him inspired.

Scott Brewster – Financial Director

Scott has been partnering Andy on the Wavegarden project since 2014. Scott’s long-time vision to create a world class country park and leisure attraction on his land fits perfectly with the Wavegarden concept. Scott is a successful businessman in his own right, and brings years of accounting experience, alongside a wealth of knowledge that comes from running family businesses that vary from recycling, to self-storage, to stockcars. Scott has shown unwavering commitment to the project over the years and alongside Andy has given up much of his free time to carry out the years of diligence a project on this scale requires.
