Laurie Barton Wright, Brand & Development Director of The Westgrove Group, which employs over 1,000 people, said: “We are delighted to welcome James on board. He comes from a strong commercial background and has a good understanding of our market sector.

“He is set to be an intrinsic member of our business development management team as we continue to grow within the shopping centre sector.”

James said: “I’m looking forward to being part of such a forward thinking and successful company. My previous experience within shopping centres will help support the Synergy by Westgrove proposition which is very much about industry knowledge, added value and service excellence.”

The Westgrove Group celebrated its 20th anniversary this year after being founded in 1998 by Group Chairmen Simon Whittle and Steve Fives. The business is projecting a turnover of circa £22M at the end of 2018, a 21% growth on 2017.
