The Charleston Town Center has a new general manager.
Frank Salucci, representing real estate firm CBRE, will oversee the Town Centers operations while CBRE is the appointed receiver of the mall, according to a Jan. 18 memo distributed to mall tenants and staff.
The memo says Salucci, of Morgantown, has more than 25 years of retail real estate experience and has managed malls, strip centers and office buildings. He is a West Virginia University graduate.
Saluccis hiring fills a general manager position that had been unfilled for months. The Town Centers previous general manager, Tom Bird, retired in September after heading the malls operations for 17 years.
In an emailed response to a request for comment, a CBRE spokeswoman only said CBRE has been appointed by court order the receiver for Charleston Town Center and will continue to maintain the uninterrupted operation of the property.
Saluccis hiring comes after the Town Center owners were sued for allegedly breaching a contract after defaulting on a $100 million loan. The involved parties reached an agreement for CBRE to take over prior to a court hearing.
