Anton Cech


Head of Shopping Centre Management and Head of Shopping Centre Donau Zentrum (Austria)


Anton manages the Donau Zentrum shopping centre and is also in charge of applying the Group’s operational activities in Austria.

“My journey with Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield started in 2006 at Rodamco, as Investment Asset Manager. Over time, I enriched my professional life with the many opportunities that crossed my path.

Following the acquisition by Unibail, I took on an operational role in 2008 as Shopping Centre Manager at Shopping City Süd that became the main shopping and leisure destination in Austria. In 2013, I became responsible for the Austria region as Head of Shopping Centre Management. I was well equipped to apply my knowledge on a country level, while keeping my initial position in parallel. A milestone for me was my leaving Shopping City Süd in 2018 after ten years, to become Shopping Centre Manager at Donau Zentrum.

What was not an easy task in the beginning ended up being extremely rewarding – tackling an exciting project with a fresh look, a new team and a new mindset. This switch pushed me out of my comfort zone and challenged me onto a new level. In retrospect, it was a great move and I am happy that I dared to take the plunge.”
