“On behalf of Prologis, I want to thank Guy for his many contributions to Prologis’ success,” said Hamid R.

Jaquier commented: “This is a personal decision and I am in a fortunate position where I can scale back my full-time professional pursuits. I appreciate the opportunity to have been part of the company and look forward to helping guide its significant growth through my continued role on Investment Committee.”
“Going forward, activities formerly part of Prologis Capital Partners will expand to encompass both public and private strategic capital initiatives focused on distinct geographies within our global platform,” said Moghadam. “The leadership of this function will be integrated into our entire executive team, rather than managed as a separate line of business.”
