Shopping centre giant intu has appointed Citypress’ Oonagh Spence as PR and media manager for its Trafford Centre site.
A FTSE 100 company, intu’s shopping centre portfolio includes intu Lakeside and intu Metrocentre, as well as properties in a number of city centre locations from Watford to Newcastle.
Spence was previously an account director at Manchester-based PR agency Citypress, where she led the press office for UK retail landlord British Land.
Before that, she worked at both Havas PR UK and Rain Communications, where she worked with brands including McArthurGlen, John Lewis, the New West End Company, Greggs and Pets at Home.
In her new role, Spence will be responsible for managing all campaign and day-to-day press office activities for the Trafford centre.
Caroline Aikman, marketing manager at intu Trafford Centre, said: “We’re thrilled to have Oonagh on board. Oonagh’s enthusiasm is fantastic to see and we’re certain she’s going to be a huge asset to the team, particularly to support the many new and exciting initiatives we have planned for 2016.”
Spence said: “I’m thrilled to take on such an exciting and varied role. I love the fast-paced nature of retail PR and am really looking forward to working on such a prestigious and well-known shopping centre.”
