Savona has spent the past 23 years with Michigan-based Taubman Centers, which owns and/or operates 27 high-end shopping centers across the country, including The Mall at Green Hills, which it purchased in 2011. Most recently, Savona was general manager of Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Auburn Hills, Mich., the region’s largest indoor shopping center.

Prior to that, Savona was general manager of Memorial City Mall in Houston for two years and, prior to that, assistant general manager of Woodfield Mall near Chicago for six years, where she helped manage the expansion and renovation of that center. She came to Chicago from Nashville, where she was assistant general manager of the then-newly constructed Bellevue Center.

Prior to earning her certified shopping center manager designation, Savona earned a bachelor’s degree from Middle Tennessee State University and attended graduate school at Vanderbilt University.
