Flemingate appoints centre manager

Flemingate, the new retail and leisure scheme in Beverley, has appointed Graham Tait as centre manager.

Due to open in October, the 162,561 square foot centre will be anchored by a Debenhams store, a six-screen Parkway digital cinema, and an 80-room Premier Inn hotel. Other key brands in Flemingate’s line-up will include H&M, Outfit and Wilkinson.  

Tait joined Flemingate from Westfield Stratford where he was senior projects delivery manager. Prior to that, he was a UK project manager at Ikea and also worked for the Jaeger and Aquascutum fashion brands.

Dominic Gibbons, managing director of Flemingate developer Wykeland Group, said: "We are delighted to have been able to attract such an experienced and skilled centre manager as Graham. His appointment is another landmark in the development of the scheme, especially as we are now in the final run-up to the Flemingate’s opening in late October."

According to CACI, Flemingate will increase Beverley’s market potential by 60%. The catchment also contains twice the number of affluent Acorn groups as the UK and regional averages.

Tait added: "To be part of something that is going to change Beverley immeasurably for the better is just an opportunity too good to miss. Flemingate will be a magnet to bring people into Beverley from the surrounding areas and can only enhance the centre and the town. It is a turning point for Beverley – everything is coming together."  

Once finished, Flemingate will create around 700 jobs for the local area.
