In Other People's Words
Chairman, Centro Properties Group
As Chairman of the Centro Properties Group, I worked closely with Mitchell Brown in his capacity as Head of Marketing & Corporate Communications. This was a particularly challenging period for the Group. Our demands on Mitchell were very high as the Group needed communications to be executed promptly and faultlessly with all stakeholders and the media.
I gained a high level of confidence in Mitchell’s abilities. I would often seek out his views on complex issues to gain the benefit of his judgment and counsel. I was delighted with his performance, attitude and professionalism.
Senior Legal Counsel & Company Secretary, Centro Properties Group
Mitchell's collaborative and proactive working style and ability to work constructively with the team to achieve the best outcome in the most efficient and elegant manner was quickly recognized and exploited.
Mitchell quickly and accurately assesses a situation, and in delivering his assessment Mitchell will have had regard to the particular circumstances and sensitivities of the recipient. This always includes a recommendation as to how best to proceed which is unfailingly sensible, commercial and achievable. Mitchell will also see and alert the team to nuances in the situation that may not be immediately apparent to most. In doing all of this, Mitchell delivers the message clearly and honestly, even when that message may be contrary to what the recipient wants to hear.
Mitchell invested the time to fully understand our company. His unique marketing and public relations talent was channeled to deliver solutions appropriate to our culture as well as obtaining the results we wanted.
Even when tackling difficult issues, Mitchell not only kept a clear head and could respond on a dime, he challenged us to put our best beliefs forward and rise above the fray.
He doesn't look for the easy solution, he looks for the best solution and then marshalls the team to achieve it.
Creative Consultant, Fabrizio & Friends
I had the pleasure of working for Mitchell for three years while he was Vice President of Marketing at Centro.
Overseeing a team consisting of many and varied personalities and skill sets, Mitchell consistently drove results amidst seemingly impossible deadlines — always with good humor and grace.
Mitchell has the mind of a military strategist, the heart of an HR director, and the work ethic of a pro athlete.
