URW expands management board as it appoints Scott Parsons as UK COO
Shopping centre owner Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield has expanded its management board with the inclusion of two new members. It has also appointed Scott Parsons as chief operating officer of the UK.
Chief investment officer Oliver Bossard and chief resources officer Astrid Panosyan will both join URW chief executive and chairman Jean-Marie Tritant and chief financial officer Fabrice Moucheon on the board.
URW said the new board will lead a more decentralised business where more power will be given to the group’s regions. This has involved the creation of four new enlarged European regions with each headed up by a regional chief operating officer who will report to Tritant.
In the UK, URW has appointed Scott Parsons to the role. Having joined the group in November 2018 as regional managing director, he will now also be responsible for the newly formed corporate Centres of Excellence for the Concept Studio Europe, Construction Europe and Events Europe divisons.
Parsons said: “As we start the year with the announcement of the new group organisation structure, I am delighted to lead one of the key regions which includes Europe’s two largest shopping centres plus some of our biggest residential developments. The focus on customer is paramount in our approach and something that is very much at the heart of everything we do here in the UK. I very much look forward to continuing this journey, alongside my colleagues across Europe and the US, within the new organisation structure.”
