A seasoned retail executive, Wardell received her first taste of shopping centers at an Atlanta-based boutique advertising agency. Her clients included Taubman, owner and operator of City Creek Center.
Wardell has played a pivotal role in the grand openings of several high-profile properties, including Polaris Fashion Place, a 1.5-million-square-foot shopping center in Columbus, Ohio. Linda spent nine years with Glimcher Realty Trust, owner of Polaris, and while there opened two shopping centers and earned frequent career promotions, eventually serving as vice president of marketing.
Wardell joined Taubman in January 2007. Now, bringing her extensive experience to City Creek Center, Wardell and her team oversee the property which opened on March 22, 2012.
