Neptune Magnet mall will now be managed by IDEAS Consulting and Advisory headed by the consultancy’s owner Surjit Singh Rajpurohit who has replaced Susil Dungarwal, from Beyond Squarefeet Advisory, as the new chief executive officer with effect from 1st August, 2012.
Rajpurohit has over 18 years of experience in mall management and marketing. Commenting on the appointment, Rajpurohit said: “It is a new beginning and I am delighted to take on this new responsibility. I am ready to complete the unfinished agenda of the business. Neptune Magnet mall has tremendous potential which is yet untapped as it has not been marketed well. Result oriented, effective, and performance-based mall management and practices are required; which would be implanted by our expertise. We are sure that it will be a turning point for this mall.”
Nayan Bheda, Chairman and Managing Director, Neptune Group, said that Rajpurohit’s leadership and experience will enable the mall to achieve its growth and profitability goals.
