The British Council of Shopping Centres (BCSC), has announced that Giulia Bunting, Planning Director at GL Hearn, is to become its Junior Vice President. The current Junior Vice President, Mark Bourgeois, Executive Director at Capital & Regional, will become Vice President with immediate effect, following the resignation of Suzi Clay, Portfolio Director at Land Securities.

Giulia joined the BCSC Executive Board in 2014 and has been an elected member of the Advisory Panel for more than three years. Giulia also sits on the Planning Working Group and has represented BCSC at a number of key events.

In addition to her role in presenting the 2015 BCSC Manifesto to key politicians, Giulia was the only consultant representative on the Government Taskforce that BCSC set up to examine the future of the High Street. She is also an active participant in the BCSC conference, has presented numerous seminars, and is a member of the Conference Committee.

Giulia’s appointment as Junior Vice President coincides with the appointment of John Coyne as BCSC’s Chief Executive.

Giulia Bunting, Junior Vice President, BCSC, said:

“I am delighted to be taking this key role at a hugely exciting time for BCSC. I very much look forward to supporting Mark Bourgeois and BCSC President David Atkins as we welcome John Coyne as Chief Executive.”

Alastair Crowdy, National Head of Planning, Development & Regeneration at GL Hearn, added:

“Giulia’s status as one of the UK’s leading planning consultants means that she is clearly an excellent choice for this role, with over 30 years’ experience of influencing and delivering some of the UK's most successful retail projects, including Liverpool One, Grand Arcade and Cabot Circus. Giulia continues to bring her unique blend of enthusiasm and expertise to BCSC and the property sector as a whole and I am delighted that BCSC has recognised that with such a senior level appointment within the organisation.”
