Christopher Mason

Shopping Centre Manager

Chris’ has over 30 years experience and expertise across all types of retail property and various roles within the shopping centre industry including centre management, portfolio leasing management, retail planning and development management. Chris has worked for some of the largest property companies including Myer Properties, Lend Lease Retail and Centro in key properties such as Eastland, The Glen, Southgate Arts and Leisure Precinct, Greensborough and DFO Spencer.

“ Retail property is arguably the most dynamic of the property with potential high returns and I leaned very early that understanding the component mix: good operational and facility management to present the centre well and operate efficiently, strong leasing giving return and growth, retail understanding to ensure the retailers have the ability to trade strongly and excellent marketing and advertising and promotions to maximise traffic flows. In effect retail is like baking a cake: have the right ingredients, in the right quantities and baked at the right temperature will give a lovely cake.

From opening new to refurbishing existing, Chris’ experience and knowledge brings a clear direction and focus to the task. Be it planning the leasing mix and develop and implement the consequent leasing strategy or delivering all facets of shopping centres: regional, sub regional, discount or neighbourhood centres.
