Cherry Creek Shopping Center has a new general manager.

Parent company Taubman Centers said Wednesday that it has named Jeramy Burkinshaw to oversee operations, retailer and community relations, and marketing for the mall in Cherry Creek. He started Nov. 1.

Burkinshaw replaces Nick LeMasters, who announced in September that he was giving up the general manager title after 23 years to serve as CEO of the Cherry Creek North Business Improvement District.

Burkinshaw has been an executive with Taubman for eight years. Most recently, he worked as general manager of the company’s University Town Center in Sarasota, Florida. Prior to that, he served as operations director of City Creek Center in Salt Lake City.

He also served on the grand opening teams for four Taubman shopping centers, including University Town Center and City Creek Center.

Prior to Taubman, Burkinshaw held senior operations, and public safety and security management positions, with multiple companies in Utah, including IPC International, Vinyl Fence Corp. and Owell Precast.

Burkinshaw has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from a Utah campus of the University of Phoenix, and also completed the Executive Leadership Series at the University of Utah Eccles School of Business, according to Taubman.

In recent years, the core of Cherry Creek Shopping Center largely has stayed full, attracting luxury brands and ecommerce brands such as Casper and Peloton.

Outer reaches of the shopping center have seen changes, with The Container Store and Macy’s Furniture moving to the east side from the increasingly barren west side. Redevelopment of the west side of the mall has been discussed in broad terms, but Taubman never has disclosed a specific vision or timeline.

If you want to ensure people who park at the mall go to the mall, offer more validation. Some of the stores do it, but not very many, which leads me to believe you are charging too much for validation. There is less incentive to go to the mall and browse now. And we couldn’t help notice the number of empty storefronts the last time we were there. The reasoning behind this is ridiculous.
