Hi, I’m Mike Clarke, Centre Director at Teesside.
I have worked at Teesside for 21 years, first as Deputy Manager and for the last 16 years as Centre Manager. In my time here, I’ve witnessed Teesside become the lifestyle destination it is today. Beloved by shoppers, families and restaurant goers, the centre is a showcase for British Land’s intelligent place making. It’s a place people prefer, no matter what they enjoy doing - a place with customers and community at its heart.
My ideal day is to be out and about talking with our retailers and catching up with customers as they shop.
Myself and the whole team are passionate about Teesside and are proud of where we live and work. Community involvement and working with local charities is of vital importance to us all and even though Teesside is huge we still like to think of it as our local little shopping destination.
In my personal life I am proud to have two wonderful granddaughters who keep me on my toes and I like to think keep me young!
My hobbies are virtually all sports but particularly football and cricket and I have supported Middlesbrough Football Club throughout my life. Still a keen runner with decent times in both the London Marathon and Great North Run.
