Macerich Marks 30 Years as Public Company, Rings Closing Bell at New York Stock Exchange

New Company President & CEO Jack Hsieh Joined by Senior Executives for Celebratory Milestone

SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 12, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Macerich (NYSE: MAC), one of the nation’s leading owners, operators and developers of high-quality retail and mixed-use properties in top markets, today marked its 30th anniversary as a public company by ringing the closing bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

Jack Hsieh, who took the reins as Macerich President and CEO on March 1, 2024, was joined by a number of Macerich senior executives to ring the bell and celebrate this significant company milestone.

“I’m so pleased and proud to lead the next chapter in Macerich’s exciting story as we continue to densify and diversify our Class A portfolio to add even more value for stakeholders,” said Hsieh. “Thirty years ago, when Macerich launched as a public company, the mall business was very different. While we know that physical retail is here to stay, this is a pivotal time for Macerich as we continue adding new uses and experiences to ensure that our well-located properties remain sought-after destinations for retailers, shoppers and communities for many years to come.”

As the retail landscape continues to evolve, Macerich’s industry-leading properties are redefining the customer experience by introducing dynamic additions that extend visitor appeal from morning to night. Adding a broad range of new uses – from fitness, grocery, entertainment, food and beverage, and medical to coworking, residential, hotel, office, and more – Macerich continues transforming its properties into vibrant, multi-use Regional Town Centers that mean more things to more people.
