Linda Wardell is an ex-oficio member of Salt Lake City’s Business Advisory Board.
Linda is the general manager of City Creek Center, the retail portion of City Creek, one of the largest mixed-use downtown redevelopment projects in the nation. With more than 25 years of experience managing and marketing shopping centers, Wardell oversees retail operations for the landmark shopping and dining destination in the heart of Salt Lake City.
A seasoned retail executive, Wardell received her first taste of shopping centers at an Atlanta-based boutique advertising agency. Her clients included Taubman, owner and operator of City Creek Center.
Wardell has played a pivotal role in the grand openings of several high-profile properties, including Polaris Fashion Place, a 1.5-million-square-foot shopping center in Columbus, Ohio. Linda spent nine years with Glimcher Realty Trust, owner of Polaris, and while there opened two shopping centers and earned frequent career promotions, eventually serving as vice president of marketing.
Thank you Linda for bringing your talents to Salt Lake City’s business community!
About the Business Advisory Board:
The Business Advisory Board (BAB) is made up of city business owners and community leaders who partner with Salt Lake City’s Department of Economic Development. Its members are appointed by the mayor and must be SLC residents and/or have ownership interest in a Salt Lake City business. BAB helps direct city economic policy, promotes small business growth, supports local entrepreneurs, and encourages businesses to relocate to our city.
As part of an ongoing effort to keep SLC’s business community in the loop, the BAB shares synopses of monthly meetings on the Salt Lake City Economic Development’s blog page. Recordings are available to the public as well.
