Paris, 4 April 2024: The Board of Directors of MRM, a real estate company specialising in retail property, convened and today announced the appointment of Damien Chiaffi as Chief Executive Officer.

At today's meeting, the Board noted François Matray's decision not to seek a renewal of his mandate as Chief Executive Officer of MRM for personal and family reasons. He had held this position since 1 October 2020.

Damien Chiaffi has worked at MRM since 2015 and is currently Real Estate and CSR Director. His appointment as Chief Executive Officer will take effect following the General Meeting of Shareholders scheduled for 5 June 2024.

Members of the Board praised the achievements of Mr Matray during his term of office, most notably the acquisition of the Flins and Ollioules shopping centres at the end of 2022, which marked a change of scale for MRM.

Louis Bourrousse, Chairman of MRM's Board of Directors, commented:“We are delighted to promote Damien Chiaffi to the post of Chief Executive Officer of MRM. His intimate knowledge of the company, the assets in its portfolio and the brands that occupy its shopping centres and malls, make him the natural successor to François Matray. His mission will be to pursue the implementation of the strategy for the management and value-enhancement of MRM's assets. The restructuring and partial renovation programme at Flins, the proactive management of the brand mix and the letting of available space are all priorities alongside the implementation of the ESG action plan and the Climate Plan adopted by the Company. I would like to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks to François Matray for his tireless commitment whilst leading MRM, adapting our assets to changes in the retail sector and, in 2022, completing a transformational deal that allowed MRM to change scale. The whole Board of Directors joins me in wishing François Matray every success in his future projects.”
