Simon — a global leader in premier shopping, dining and entertainment destinations — recently announced that Dailen Rodriguez has accepted the position of Mall Manager at The Falls.
In her new position, Rodriguez will bring a wealth of experience to her role while managing all day-to-day operations, maintenance and tenant relations. She also will be responsible for overseeing the security and marketing functions of the iconic shopping destination.
