Gatwick Airport appoints new Head of Retail

Sheen held a number of strategic and operational roles at Marks & Spencer and most recently was responsible for property and store development in the UK and Ireland.
 
Guy Stephenson said: "I am delighted that Spencer has joined the team at Gatwick, bringing with him invaluable experience at one of the UKs most trusted and established retail brands. With his background in Marks & Spencer, Spencer knows what great retail looks like, both in terms of customer service and store environment."

Sheen joins the airport ahead of a multi-million pound redevelopment of the South Terminal departure lounge, the first phase of which will begin in the New Year.

Commenting on his new role Sheen said: "There are some exciting changes taking place at Gatwick and the departure lounges are no exception. There are already some forward-thinking fashion and catering brands at the airport and I am keen to work with the team and our retail partners to create the very best shopping environment for our passengers."

Gatwick has some 250,000 sq ft of retail space and is home to more than 100 shops, cafes, bars and restaurants.
