Long-time Prologis Executive Mike Curless to Retire
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 9, 2023 — Prologis today announced Scott Marshall, global head of Customer Led Solutions at Prologis, will take the role of chief customer officer on April 1, 2023. Mike Curless, the current chief customer officer, will move to a senior advisor role before retiring in late 2023.
In his new role, Marshall will serve as a primary advocate for Prologis customers across all business lines and geographies. He will lead the teams responsible for executing the company’s comprehensive customer strategy.
“Mike has played a critical role in our effort to drive customer centricity to the forefront and accelerated our build-to-suit and data center business,” said Hamid Moghadam, Prologis’ CEO and co-founder. “As Prologis continues to evolve our offerings, we’re excited about Scott’s leadership in helping us deepen our relationships further with existing customers and attract new ones. He also will broaden our use of data-driven insights as we serve our customers in multiple dimensions across our platform.”
This change is a part of Prologis’ ongoing leadership succession planning process. Other recent leadership changes include Dan Letter becoming president of Prologis on Jan. 1 after serving as global head of Capital Deployment.
“I’m extremely proud of the customer-first approach we have taken and what we’ve been able to achieve during my tenure at Prologis,” said Curless, who has been with the company for more than 16 years. “As we continue to expand our array of products and services, I am highly confident that Scott’s skillset and experience will help Prologis drive our customer business to new heights in the industry.”
Before joining Prologis, Marshall served as CBRE’s global chief client officer and held other numerous executive leadership positions, including Americas head of industrial and logistics and Americas president of investor leasing. At CBRE, he also worked closely with Prologis leadership and real estate teams for several years before joining Prologis in May 2021. He was also president and chief development officer at Hana, where he and the team launched CBRE’s flexible office space offering.
“I can’t think of a more exciting opportunity,” said Marshall. “Prologis is focused on the many ways we can help our customers in their growth journey. We are engaging with our customers on needs well beyond physical real estate, including helping them meet sustainability goals and providing essential warehouse services and products. We work hard to stay ahead of our customers’ expectations as the logistics industry continues to evolve.”
