"Guillaume is one of the most well regarded figures in European real estate and brings with him a wealth of highly relevant experience and knowledge of the shopping centre sector which will be of great value to the Company.  I am delighted to welcome him to the Board and I very much look forward to working together."

Mark Bourgeois, Executive Director, has advised the Board of his intention to leave the business.  Mark's departure date will be confirmed in due course.
