The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) has welcomed Sandra de Jenken as new European managing director.
Sandra will work closely with Mike Morrissey, ICSC’s executive vice-president & chief global officer, to support ICSC’s European activities. She brings several years of experience working for the French government and organising major events – having been tournament director for the Roland Garros and Grand Slam tennis tournament.
Sandra attended the European Advisory Board meeting in Munich and was the first choice after a final recruitment process of three candidates with new EAB Chair Josip Kardun, and former EAB Chair Bertrand Courtois-Suffit.
Sandra will be moving from Paris to London in the upcoming weeks. In the meantime, Mike Morrissey will be transitioning his European responsibilities to her, starting with advocacy, marketing, communications and ICSC’s European specialist working groups.
Sandra said: “I am very pleased to join ICSC and to work for such a dynamic industry. I look forward to this new challenge.”
Mike Morrissey, added: “I am delighted to welcome Sandra to the ICSC European team, based in London. I worked with Sandra many years ago when we both worked in tennis associations so I know very well her excellent communication skills and work ethic. Since then, Sandra has built up considerable experience in government relations and running major events, which will be invaluable for our advocacy and networking activities.”
