Mark Hewett is a Principal of Scoop. He brings significant knowledge of the occupational market and plays a key role in the sourcing of new assets, property due diligence and retailer discussions.
With over thirty years’ specialist retail experience, Mark initially worked as a consultant before making the move to client-side. Previously Mark spent eight years as Retail Director at Miller Developments and seven years as Head of UK Retail at Colliers, specialising in the acquisition of dysfunctional shopping centres and the structuring and implementation of asset management business plans. Prior to this, Mark gained his early industry experience whilst working at Healey & Baker, now Cushman & Wakefield, and at a niche retail development consultancy, Hill Welsh.
In the current market, it is essential to have an understanding of the occupiers’ trading performance from a property, together with the potential to add value through tenant engineering, refurbishment and/or redevelopment. Mark is widely recognised as a leading authority for the retail industry and brings widespread knowledge of the occupational market to any retail/leisure project; he has a clear understanding of what is deliverable and what is illusory. Central to Mark’s approach is his impressive instinct for assessing risk and formulating strategies to mitigate such risk.
