Jean-Louis Solal Tribute 

Jean Louis Solal, pioneer of the shopping centre industry in Europe and Chair of the ICSC European Board from 1975 to 1991, passed away on 25 December 2014 at the age of 86.

Inspired by the American model of shopping centres, Solal exported the American style-mall to Europe with Parly 2 in a suburb of Paris in 1969 and developed several shopping centres in France, Spain and Belgium.  His avant-garde vision of the retail industry made him a leader and mentor to many professionals. He also directly participated in the expansion of the European business.
