Great Western Arcade, the Grade II listed retail Arcade on Colmore Row in Birmingham City Centre, has appointed Shaun Mountain as the new Centre Manager.

With more than 16 years of retail experience, Shaun joins the historic Arcade after leaving his previous role as sales and operations area manager for The Perfume Shop, where he managed one of the largest flagship stores in Bullring Birmingham.

Shaun began his career as a sales assistant at Superdrug, covering positions in Merry Hill and Bullring, gradually working his way up through the management team. He spent a year as a store manager designate in the West Midlands area, before being promoted to store manager of the Perry Barr Superdrug store. He then moved within the A.S. Watson portfolio to take on the role as store manager at The Perfume Shop in the Bullring. After three and a half years, Shaun was promoted to area manager, becoming one of its youngest area managers.

Shaun Mountain, said: “I am delighted to join the team at Great Western Arcade and continue the great work that has already been done to ensure the hidden gems within the Arcade are uncovered. We have a number of independent retailers who all bring something a little bit different to our city, and I’m looking forward to raising their profile alongside the Arcade to ensure our customers have an enjoyable experience.”

Beverly Parker, Senior Associate of Global Mutual, Retail Asset Manager of Great Western Arcade, adds: “We are really pleased to welcome Shaun to the team – he brings with him a wealth of experience which will help grow the Arcade and give our independent retailers the opportunity to evolve.”
