David Gott

General Manager, Sawgrass Mills Mall, Sunrise

Sawgrass Mills has more than 350 stores, two food courts, 17 sit-down restaurants and a recently added AC Hotel by Marriott. The mall is one of the largest shopping destinations in the world, drawing shoppers from Latin America and beyond. Gott has been general manager for five years. During his nearly 23 years with Simon Property, Gott says he has run assets in Maryland, Washington, D.C., metro Chicago and Florida. “My family and I have relocated five times during that period,” he says.

EDUCATION Northern Illinois University (BS)
SOMETHING SURPRISING I am a huge fan a Gray’s Anatomy and have been watching it since it premiered in 2005.
FLORIDA LOVE I’m originally from Chicago; living in Florida fulfills a lifelong dream I had to never again shovel snow.
ADMIRES I have really enjoyed watching the innovations by Seminole Gaming, Hard Rock International. The guitar-shaped hotel became an instant iconic landmark and enhanced South Florida’s tourism appeal.
