Simon’s Tacoma Mall welcomes Cara Ritchie as the center’s new general manager.
Ritchie will be responsible for local leasing, tenant relations, building operations, security and marketing efforts. Additionally, she will act as a key liaison with various community partners and strategic organizations.
“I am very excited to lead the exceptional team that has continued to heighten the look, feel and comfort of Tacoma Mall,” said Ritchie. “We’re currently preparing to welcome some great new retailers and restaurants, such as The Cheesecake Factory and Dick’s Sporting Goods. I look forward to continuing to improve the mall’s retail roster and enhance the experience at the Tacoma Mall for shoppers.”
Ritchie has been with Simon for nearly seven years and has held positions on both the corporate and property side of the business. Ritchie started her career in marketing at the College Mall in Bloomington, Indiana, then worked in the financial operations and lease services groups at Simon’s corporate offices. She transferred to the property management side of the company in 2015 as assistant manager at Lenox Square in Atlanta, Georgia. Most recently, Ritchie was the general manager at ABQ Uptown in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
An avid sports fan, Ritchie says she is excited to become a member of the 12s and loves how much pride the Puget Sound has for its hometown football team. Ritchie holds a Bachelor of Science in management and business foundations from Indiana University.
