Sairah joined the company on 8th September and has been appointed as the manager of Harborough Market, following the announcement in July that Market Place had been selected as the preferred bidder for the management of both the market and the town’s historic square. Until recently Sairah was the Business Manager at the award winning Leicester Market. She spent five years at Leicester, three of those years working alongside Market Place CEO Nick Rhodes, where she played an integral role in the day to day running of the retail market and events, as well as driving the service forward. The past two years she has played a major part in the construction of the fabulous new food hall at Leicester, working closely with the project architects, contractors and traders to ensure that the food hall delivered on all fronts. Prior to working in markets, Sairah spent 15 years in head office retail, holding a management position with a national lingerie company, where her role included merchandising, advertising, finance, and branch management.

Sairah is delighted to be joining Market Place,
“I am very excited to be taking up my new post with Market Place, and am enjoying the role at the newly refurbished Harborough Market. It goes without saying that I am sad to have left Leicester Market, but to be offered the chance to work at a senior level at one of the most successful market management companies in the UK is a huge opportunity and a challenge I am looking forward to immensely.”

Nick Rhodes, Chief Executive of Market Place commented:
“I am absolutely thrilled that Sairah has decided to join us. Sairah is a very experienced and talented individual and I am sure she will be a tremendous asset to Market Place.”
