Stockland’s Group Executive and CEO of Commercial Property, Louise Mason, joined the company in June and has been focused on developing Stockland’s retail strategy.
“We have developed a strategy that focuses on the global trends like urbanisation, changing demographics and technology to ensure we focus on our assets to meet the needs of our customers and their lifestyles. Our objective is to ensure our metro assets are unique, convenient destinations and our regional assets are the leading centre and the ‘place to be’ for both retailers and customers.
“We continue to strategically reposition our retail town centres, with a focus on customer experience and retail remixing towards growth categories like health, leisure and dining, to ensure the resilience of our portfolio in this changing environment.
“Retail is one of the most evolving sectors, so we are focussed on staying ahead of the curve as the industry continues to evolve into the future. Most of all, it’s about focussing on making our assets resilient, getting the mix right for each individual centre and focussing on our retailers and customers - the people who make our centres thrive and are the true beating heart of each retail town centre community.”
