Tell us about your previous career experience & how you came to work in the Shopping Centre industry.
In 2012 I started looking for a job in the logistics and management department. I had the opportunity to work in the sector within a leisure centre of which the anchor tenant was a cinema. Step by step, I acquired the experience and skills to progress further in my career and manage larger, more advanced assets.
Tell us about you and your interests outside of work.
I love travelling, discovering new cultures, learning, going to the movies, reading and doing some sport to keep me healthy.
What are your future plans for the center?
I have several projects in my mall that I will carry out to better the customer’s buying experience and offer several services to drive loyalty. We have recently welcomed the arrival of a new hypermarket to relaunch the inflow of footfall and sales into the center. I always look for excellence, quality and differentiation for my shopping center and will continue to strive to introduce new initiatives.
