Staying the Course

Staying the Course

The Oviedo Mall has been under new management since November 2010. As mall general manager, Brian Olivi is resurrecting and course-correcting a once failing mall. He recently celebrated one-year on the job. From Olivi, we learn how he and the mall are doing, and we seek confirmation from other knowledgeable mall sources. While the long term success of his work remains uncertain, this feature will address his short term work – and that of his bosses, owners and merchants – finding that it has been focused and deliberate. Length: 29:48
