Town Centre Securities (TCS) has announced the arrival of Mark Dilley as its new Group Finance Director.
Mark Dilley joined the business this month, after spending 14 years at Asda Stores Ltd (part of Walmart). During his time with the retailer Mark undertook a variety of roles across internal audit, trading finance and ecommerce finance before being appointed Vice President for Retail and Property Finance. As Vice President, Mark was responsible for all Asda stores and distribution centres as well as new store acquisitions.
In addition to his role at Asda, the new TCS Finance Director held positions at Unilever and JP Morgan. Whilst at the financial services firm, Mark supported the corporate services and facilities team then moved to support the Investment Banking and M&A client teams.
Mark Dilley commented on his move to TCS, saying: “I am very happy to be joining the company, especially at such an exciting time. This position appealed to me on many fronts as it’s a new challenge for me personally but also gives me the chance to work for a company that has maintained the culture and values of its founder.
“I hope I’ll be able to add real value supporting the business as it identifies more growth opportunities and potential investments, using the skills and experience I’ve developed working in other large businesses. I am also looking forward to working with Edward Ziff and the rest of the board as they use their existing, strong financial platform to unlock these new growth opportunities.”
Edward Ziff, Chairman and Chief Executive of Town Centre Securities, said: “On behalf of the board, I would like to welcome Mark to the business. We were in no doubt that he was the right man for the job and are looking forward to working with him on our upcoming projects. He brings some exceptional experience to the role and will be an asset to myself and the team as we continue with our development programme.”
Mark Dilley was born in Essex then lived in Brighton and London after completing his degree at Oxford University. He moved to Yorkshire in 2003 and lives in Harrogate with his wife and three children.
