Marc Myers took on the role as centre manager just before Christmas and has had a long career in the retail sector.

He said his first few months have been "hectic" but added he is really looking forward to overseeing "big changes" at Intu Bromley.

He told News Shopper: "The changes in the business are still so fresh but I’ve got a great team here and it’s a great place to be. It excites me to be here."

Mr Myers started out managing Marks and Spencer stores and described himself as a "poacher-turned-gamekeeper" having made the transition to shopping centres 10 years ago.

He explained: "I’ve seen lots of areas - I’ve been in management, buying and shopping centres.

"I can see how they can help town centre regeneration.

"I’m so passionate about business and retail. I want to see Bromley thrive and feel my experiences allows me to do something here."

Mr Myers is married with three children. He lives in Essex.
