CBRE Global Investors names Cummins Angel Central manager
CBRE Global Investors has namedAdam Cummins manager of Angel Central, the newly refurbished Islington, London community-led retail and leisure destination.
He joins the team at Lambert Smith Hampton, appointed by CBRE as the managing agents for the destination.
Cummins has over 18 years’ experience in standalone, multi-site, and area manager roles. He joins the team from Selfridges London where he managed a £56 million retail business within the department store.
His retail experience also includes previously managing stores for Tiffany & Co and Charles Tyrwhitt, and he's “well-versed in driving performance through commercial actions, and enhancing team engagement and development”, CBRE said.
This appointment follows the completion of the £16 million shopping centre refurbishment of Angel Central, transforming the space and generating over 20,000 sq ft in bespoke and flagship units.
The redevelopment also saw the creation of a pedestrian link bridge and balcony extensions on the first floor, above a fully-glazed kiosk within the central plaza and the raising of the ‘Angel Wings’, a focal point for the destination.
Ciara Daffy, asset manager at CBRE, added: “Our investment in Angel Central has created a new-look shopping destination, and with Adam joining the team we are in a great position to reconnect with the local community and our visitors, especially now as the city is getting busier day by day”.
The news follows the recent announcement that sustainability-focused department store, Know the Origin, has opened its latest pop-up and first zero-waste store at Angel Central.
