Richardson joins Kimco board

Less than a week after being named chairman of the International Council of Shopping Centers, Valerie Richardson has been appointed to the board of directors of Kimco Realty Corp.

“We look forward to the unique insight and perspective Valerie will bring from her work in the retail side of the business," said Kimco CEO Conor Flynn. "Her experience in leading the real estate strategies for several major brands will be an important asset for Kimco.”

Richardson has more than 35 years of experience in retail real estate, working for brands such as Ann Taylor, Barnes & Noble and, most recently, The Container Store, where she has led the real estate team for nearly 18 years.

At Container Store, she oversees site evaluation and lease negotiation, along with the coordination of store design and construction for the brand’s nationwide expansion program.
