Role Profiles at Corporate Headquarters
Every day in our Bloomfield Hills headquarters, hundreds of Taubman associates are focused on supporting our operating centers and advancing the projects emerging from our development pipeline.
These talented professionals work in such critical areas of our business as leasing, lease administration, center management, development, human resources, finance, central operations, information technology, sponsorship and center marketing, investor relations, customer information, architecture, planning and design.
“Within the shopping center industry, we’re known as a ‘best-in-class’ company, and I think that applies to our people as well. At all levels, starting with senior management, you find people who are approachable and want to help you get things done. I think that’s one of our most endearing qualities.
In the restaurant business, the Taubman name gets attention. The best chains recognize us for quality, luxury and productivity. So when a potential tenant learns that we’re interested in them, it makes them feel good about themselves. They want to do business in our centers.”
"My plan when I started at Taubman as a young architect was to stay long enough to broaden my understanding of real estate development and then move on to an architectural design firm. Well, more than a quarter of a century later I'm still here, loving the variety and excitement of each unique development project.
I’m glad I stayed because working here gives me the opportunity to positively impact the quality of life in communities around the globe. One hallmark of our brand is that beyond responding to a location’s site features, we design every center to complement the cultural and architectural context of its region. And we get to tap the best minds and experience in the industry for feedback and guidance on any given challenge, right here under our own roof."
“One thing I really appreciate about working at Taubman is the company’s willingness to give you the resources you need to succeed. In striving for excellence, our culture encourages personal and professional growth, while at the same time fostering an environment of collaboration across all departments.
To build on our success, we recruit high-achieving individuals, and our onboarding process for new employees does not stop after 30 days. We understand that it takes a while for anyone to be fully ‘Taubmanized.’ So we provide plenty of training and make sure everyone is continually experiencing and contributing to the excellence and performance that define our properties and our organization.”
