Joining the online giant as its senior real estate manager for physical stores, Daniels will be a crucial part of Amazon’s plans as seeks to continue expanding its Amazon Fresh estate.
“Thrilled to have joined Amazon this week at such an exciting time in their journey into physical retail spaces in the UK,” said Daniels, who had served for Hammerson for nearly seven years.
“Huge thank you to all my friends and former colleagues at Hammerson for an amazing 6.5 years working on some of the best retail destinations out there, a very bright omnichannel future awaits.”
Last month, Amazon opened three more Amazon Fresh locations in Euston, Wandsworth and Chingford, bringing the total number of UK stores to 15.
The ecommerce giant’s other stores can be found in Ealing, Wembley Park, Camden, White City, Canary Wharf, Dalston, East Sheen, Islington, Richmond and Holborn, all in walking distance from both Tesco and Sainsbury’s autonomous supermarkets.
