David Slade, Leasing director, Westfield Group

October saw the culmination of David Slade and the Westfield Group leasing team’s hard work, with the opening of the £1.7 billion Westfield London shopping centre in White City. The affable Australian pulled off a coup by convincing luxury heavyweights Louis Vuitton, Prada and Gucci to sign up.

As the economic downturn took hold, Westfield London defied the gloom to be the one new shopping development that few high street names wanted to miss out on, and the scheme is now 99% let. By day nine the centre had welcomed one million visitors.

Westfield has signed up John Lewis to anchor its Stratford scheme due to open in east London in 2011. Other locations in the development pipeline are Guildford in Surrey, Nottingham, Merry Hill in Dudley, West Midlands, and Lisburn in Northern Ireland.
