The company, part of the Peel Group, which reported a record year in 2017 across its two operational sites – Gloucester Quays and Lowry Outlet MediaCityUK Manchester – has appointed two new Leasing Managers.
David Charlton joins the Lifestyle Outlet team from Savills, where he worked within the Retail Agency team, focusing on the leasing and asset management of Shopping Centres and High Street property. He brings a wealth of experience and contacts to the Lifestyle Outlets team.
Ben Hey also joins the team and brings experience from leasing roles with North West landlords Bruntwood and Orbit Developments. Ben also previously worked for national agents Lambert Smith Hampton.
Rachel Scott, Head of Leasing at Lifestyle Outlets, commented on the new appointments: “Both Ben and David bring considerable experience to our growing Lifestyle Outlet team, together with a wide array of important retailer contacts.
“Their new roles are pivotal as we continue the development of our Lifestyle Outlets’ perfect fit leasing model, and expand into the Scottish market.”
Recent brands to join the Lifestyle Outlet portfolio include Ted Baker, Jack Wills, Cath Kidston, Joules, H Samuel, Lindt, Timberland, The Cosmetic Company Store and Côte restaurants, with many more in the pipeline for 2018.
Leasing Director for Lifestyle Outlets, Adrian Wright, said: “This is an exciting time for Lifestyle Outlets as we continue to expand and look to the future. With the development of our Leasing Team, we are establishing ourselves to grow our Outlet portfolio.”
Lifestyle Outlets rebranded from Peel Outlets in 2016 to reflect its plans to create a better generation of Outlet destinations, using a unique strategy of creating destinations with personality, through a balanced combination of strong retail brands, leisure amenities, entertainment and experience.
Lifestyle Outlets currently owns and operates Lowry Outlet, Manchester and Gloucester Quays – the fastest growing outlet in the UK.
