Appointment: Managing Director of Hammerson France


Hammerson has appointed Jean-Philippe Mouton as Managing Director of Hammerson France with immediate effect.


Jean-Philippe, who is a member of the Group’s Executive Committee, assumed responsibility for running the Company’s French business in November 2009, following the resignation of the former Managing Director, Christophe Clamageran.


Jean-Philippe joined Hammerson in 2003 to head up Hammerson France’s subsidiary focusing on property leasing, development and asset management. In February 2006, he assumed responsibility for management of the French portfolio as Director of Operations for Hammerson France. Prior to joining Hammerson, Jean-Philippe worked for Disneyland Paris as Strategic Planning Director, and previously worked at Standard Chartered Bank.


David Atkins, Chief Executive of Hammerson said:


“France is an extremely important part of Hammerson’s business, representing around one third of our investment portfolio and a significant part of our future development programme. Jean-Philippe has made a major contribution to our business over a number of years and in recent months has secured the acquisition of Les Terrasses du Port development in Marseille. I have great confidence in his ability to lead the French team and strengthen and grow our business in France.”


Jean-Philippe Mouton, Managing Director of Hammerson France said:


“I’m delighted to take up this position at an important time for Hammerson’s French business. We have a number of exciting development projects and one of the best retail portfolios in France. I look forward to working with my UK and French colleagues to develop the business.”
