Christopher said “I’m really pleased to have the opportunity to take on this exciting role and help take Conservatory Outlet to new heights. With the growth forecast across the network it’s going to be a challenging role, but I am certain as a team we can implement the improvements needed to ensure we meet customer expectations.”
