All change at the top for McArthurGlen's exec team

Oct 28, 2020

Designer outlet malls giant McArthurGlen has announced some key changes in its executive team with its long-serving CEO taking a new role and two people replacing her.


CEO Julia Calabrese assumes the new role of Vice-Chairman while Susie McCabe and Joan Jove take over as Co-CEOs.

The appointments take immediate effect and all three executives report to McArthurGlen Group Chairman, JW (Joey) Kaempfer.

Calabrese has been in her role for 18 years, during which time the firm has expanded its outlet offer internationally.
Kaempfer said of her: “After serving as our trusted and much-loved CEO, Julia Calabrese has expressed her wish to step back from her full-time executive duties. I would like to thank Julia for her long service and dedication to our company over many successful years, and I am delighted that we will continue to benefit from her wise counsel as she takes on her new role”.

He added that the two new CEOs have “backgrounds and skills [that] will be a powerful combination as we continue to transform our business and find new ways to meet and exceed our customers’ expectations”.
McCabe has been the firm’s Deputy CEO for the past two years “following an extensive career in retail with major fashion brands”.  She spent four years at Under Armour as Senior VP of Global Retail after 16 years at Ralph Lauren Corporation in a number of senior roles in both its full-price and outlet businesses.

Jove has moved up from his previous role as the group’s MD, Southern Europe and Canada. He’s worked for the firm for 12 years on both the real estate development and operational sides of the business. He led the development of the company’s two new centres in Vancouver and Malaga and, for the past five years, has overseen the operations of eight centres in Italy, Spain, Greece and Canada.
