A graduate from Mumbai University, Shibu Philips brings with him over 24 years of experience launching international quick service restaurants and state of the art shopping malls. He is one of the pioneers who transformed the retail arena of the country, with a glittering track record that dates back to the year 2000. One of the main driving forces behind the launch of three of India’s best Shopping Malls, Inorbit Malad Mumbai, Oberoi Mall Mumbai and Lulu Mall Kerala, he is a Level 3 certified Shopping centre Manager from International council of shopping centres – ICSC (USA), receiving professional recognition of the body twice during Maxi 2007 and 2014.
 
In 2010, he joined Lulu Group to play a key role in the visionary project of the MD of the group, to bring international shopping experiences to Kerala for the first time. Needless to the say, the dream was realised in record time, and Shibu Philips was part of the team that gave life to that vision. Currently he is the Business Head of Lulu Mall, making waves in a market with no prior exposure to international shopping malls, marching ahead by setting one milestone after another. He is also playing a key role in Lulu Mall’s extensive expansion plans to markets like Lucknow, Bangalore, Trivandrum, Hyderabad, and 10 other cities in India.
 
Real commitment never goes unrecognized and recognitions came looking for him, wherever he rendered his service. Being adjudged one of the “Most Influential Shopping Centre Professional” in India is just one feather in his cap.
