JLL today announced its Retail President and Chief Executive Officer Greg Maloney, CRX, CSM, has been appointed to the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) Board of Trustees. Maloney brings 35 years of industry knowledge to ICSC’s Board of Trustees and hails from an impressive background covering the full spectrum of retail real estate. In his new role as a trustee, he and the board will help establish policies and govern all matters for ICSC’s more than 70,000 worldwide members.
“The common denominator to the world’s greatest associations is an experienced and diversified board of trustees who bring a refreshing wave of talent and expertise to the table. It is an honor and extraordinary opportunity to welcome Greg to this dynamic roster that represents every sector of ICSC’s multifaceted membership, to the Board of Trustees,” said ICSC’s president and CEO, Michael P. Kercheval.
As Retail President and CEO, Maloney oversees all aspects of JLL’s Americas Retail business, which delivers management, leasing, marketing, development, tenant representation and strategic consulting services to clients of the firm. As an International Director, Maloney sits on JLL’s Global Retail Board and the Americas Retail Executive Committee, which sets strategy and direction for all retail related areas. Maloney has also accrued 15 years directing the firm’s receivership practice for all asset types for more than 70 properties. A regular speaker at industry conferences and seminars, he holds ICSC’s Senior Certified Shopping Center Manager designation (SCSM). In addition, he is a member of the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and serves on its Retail Green Committee.
The new board members were honored during a ceremony at the global retail real estate convention RECon on May 19 in Las Vegas.
The Board of Trustees supports ICSC in the implementation of its mission statement to advance the shopping center industry. In January 2015, the Board of Trustees updated the ICSC “Restated” Bylaws, strengthening the relevance of the organization and making it more responsive to members’ needs, by increasing transparency of governance and management and by improving its system of checks and balances of power. The newly restructured board will take on a high-level advisory role, while a subset, the Executive Board, will assume responsibility for all policy and governance.
