In her new role Rachel will be over-seeing Gatwick’s 82 shops and 36 restaurants which include Harrods, Ted Baker, Comptoir Libanais, Jamie’s Italian and Bruno Loubet’s Grain Store Café and Bar.
Cambridge graduate Rachel joins Gatwick having held roles at Marks and Spencer including working in international development for the retailer in India, Russia and South Korea.
She continued her career within luxury fashion retailer Burberry’s retail operations team in emerging markets before going on to Homebase and OC&C Strategy Consultants, prior to joining Gatwick.
Gatwick Airport’s Head of Retail Rachel Bulford said:
“Gatwick is a unique retailing proposition, needing to have blend of brands to cater for the variety of different needs among the airport’s 42 million passengers a year.
“For me, there is a heightened expectation with airport shopping and dining – plus the fact that our passengers have limited time before heading off on their holiday or business trip. Meaning that we have to create fantastic experiences which run like clockwork.
“I’m looking forward to enhancing and developing the range here at Gatwick working in partnership with the great brands here at the airport plus new ones in the future.”
Gatwick Airport’s Chief Commercial Officer Guy Stephenson said:
“Rachel joins Gatwick with a wealth of experience across high street and luxury retailers. This coupled with the years that she has spent working internationally in emerging markets enables her to bring a host of new ideas and international best practice to retailing at Gatwick.
“Just this week Gatwick was named one of the Best Airports in Western Europe in the influential Skytrax Awards. I’m looking forward to working with Rachel to maintain Gatwick’s leading position and ensure that our passengers have the best possible start to their time away.”
