Maidstone shopping centre manager Paul Alcock to take early retirement ahead of £100m revamp plans

20 March 2014

The man who has steered a shopping centre through recession-hit times is to step down.

Mr Alcock made his decision when owners Capital and Regional announced a £100 million redevelopment, which meant committing to the position for a further five years.

Mr Alcock said: “It is sad to say goodbye to The Mall and the friends I have had over the last 17 years.

"But I am pleased that I am moving on and getting some time to do what I wanted to do.”

He will continue with his other roles including Town Centre Management, the Urban Blue Bus, and the Maidstone Leisure Trust and as a football referee assessor.

He will be replaced as general manager by Andy Davey, who moves from a centre in Uxbridge.
