Regency’s President and CEO, Lisa Palmer, was recently interviewed about how Regency is taking advantage of changing retail landscape opportunities at Nareit’s REITworld: 2019 Annual Conference in Los Angeles. The conference included meetings, educational sessions and networking opportunities led by experts in the real estate investment community.
The interview followed a recent REIT Magazine interview featuring Palmer, and centered on her commitment to seeing Regency Centers continue to grow, adapt and improve as the ever-changing retail industry evolves.
It’s been validated that bricks and mortar continue to be a critical component of all retailers’ and service providers’ strategy,” said Lisa Palmer. “With the quality of our portfolio and our real estate, we are really well positioned to take advantage of that.
Palmer was also asked to expand on the three critical components of Regency’s Fresh Look® initiative:
Merchandising: Ensuring a mix of the best local, regional and national retailers to create a dynamic vibrancy across the Regency portfolio; Placemaking: Implementing artistic elements with which to connect retailers with their local communities; and Connecting: Maintaining a strong voice and social media presence, as well as creative events and collaborations that help Regency become the fabric of its communities.
The conversation also touched on how the company’s four pillars of corporate responsibility — team, communities, environmental stewardship and governance — factor into Regency’s day-to-day operations, from the boardroom to the company as a whole.
One thing has remained constant at Regency, and that’s our values,” said Palmer. "The company really is built on honesty, integrity, transparency and simply doing what is right.
