Former Paralegal Is New Mall GM

The Independence Mall in Kingston, Massachusetts has a new General Manager, one with 20 years of property management experience. Doreen Lang, a doctoral candidate and former paralegal, has been in charge since last month and is seeking new ideas to keep the mall competitive in the midst of a recession.

“We have the River Run condominium complex being built in the spring and Plymouth Rock Studios coming in soon, and eventually 1021 Kingston Place.” Lang said. “I think we’re in a fantastic spot for shoppers and I think the people who can hang in there are going to reap the benefits.”

Lang has experience “hanging in there.” Now in her late 40s, she has her real estate license and has also worked as a paralegal and a notary. She has been in the property management business for 20 years. This week she spent time at a nearby mall to learn more about the business. Lang also teaches business courses at a local community college in the evenings. She’s also pursuing a docorate in educational leadership.
