With extensive experience in the property sector, he has held positions of responsibility over the course of his career at companies such as Merlin Properties, Metrovacesa and the Carrefour Group. Before joining Neinver, Mata was the director of shopping center management teams at Merlin Properties, overseeing 14 centers. He holds a degree in Industrial Engineering from the University of Valladolid, an MBA from the IESE Business School and a master’s in Industrial Design and Product Creation from the University of Paris.
Mata said it is “an exciting challenge to assume management of Spain’s largest portfolio of outlet centers in a financially sound and industry-leading company such as Neinver, which has a highly specialised management model.”
Neinver manages six outlet centers in Spain: The Style Outlets centers in Greater Madrid, Barcelona and A Coruña, and Fashion Outlet Barakaldo in the Basque Country – as well as three retail and leisure parks – Nassica in Getafe, Alegra in San Sebastián de los Reyes and Megapark in Barakaldo.
