Having spent over 21 years in a variety of management roles in the shopping centre industry, George brings a wealth of experience and expertise to the role. He has previously held management positions at Silverburn and Princes Square in Glasgow and Oak Mall shopping centre in Greenock.
George said: “I am delighted to be joining Ayr Central at such an exciting time. The shopping environment is brilliant – clean, fresh and lots of open space. The tenant line up is very strong – we cover all shoppers' needs with our Debenhams department store and a host of top brand high street retailers and local independents.”

His appointment comes five months after M&G Real Estate acquired the centre, which opened in the heart of Ayr in 2006 and houses brands such as Debenhams, Primark, Topshop, H&M and Next.
Ayr Central is managed by CBRE. The letting agents are Smith Cole Wright and Gunn Property Consultants.
