THE GENERAL manager of Touchwood Shopping Centre has been awarded as ‘Manager of the Year’ in the Large Centre category of the 2022 Sceptre Awards.

Staff have said Tony Elvin’s management has been crucial to its success and across his four years as general manager, and he has always prioritised the importance of managing with and through people.

Tony said: “I am absolutely delighted to be awarded the title of ‘Manager of the Year’.

“Any award win like this requires a huge team effort.

“From my local Touchwood crew to our leasing team, a proactive and supportive landlord, asset management team and Head Office at Workman, we are all on the same page, trying to create the best possible experience for our guests. All of this happens within the most collaborative town centre environment possible.

Gareth Soar, retail property management at Workman LLP, said: “We are delighted for Tony and this well-deserved award win.

“Tony has done an amazing job in ensuring that Touchwood has remained a busy, compelling and high-quality retail and leisure destination.

“Most impressively he’s managed to achieve that whilst driving a keen focus on sustainability, diversity and inclusion. We’re very proud of Touchwood’s achievements and excited to continue working with Tony and the team on this journey.”
