We are delighted to announce that Ropewalk Shopping Centre has been shortlisted for two Sceptre Awards this year.
Tony Wilkes has been shortlisted in the category of ‘Manager of the Year’ for a medium centre. This is a huge achievement as Tony, for the entirety of 2016, managed the Ropewalk Shopping Centre without any additional team members on site. During this time not only did Tony successfully manage the centre, but he also went above and beyond to work towards developing and repositioning the centre to be the most popular shopping destination in the West Midlands. As part of his vision, Tony has produced a new business plan for the centre and he has invested in his on-site service partners with training, mentoring, and staff award schemes.
Ropewalk has also been shortlisted in the category of ‘Waste Management Award’ for the team’s efforts towards Waste Management, having successfully launched the Ropewalk Goes Green scheme which encourages recycling throughout the centre. Ropewalk now recycles 100% of waste, through complete segregation at source by utilising a full waste management station which is managed by the centre staff and Green Waste Champions. Also, we have achieved a 66% cost reduction in waste management over the past twelve months.
The Sceptre Awards are the pre-eminent accolades in the shopping centre industry, putting the spotlight on management teams, retailers and suppliers that demonstrate real excellence. The Sceptre Awards recognise the best practice and the best people in the shopping centre industry. Each category has six shortlisted nominations.
We now look forward to attending the prestigious awards ceremony on Tuesday 20th June 2017 at the Dorchester Hotel in London. We are keeping everything crossed!
