Nekritz has been with Prologis for 30 years, having joined the company as its first lawyer and general counsel. During his tenure, he has among other things been a key figure in the company’s M&A activities. He is also corporate secretary. He was previously an attorney with Mayer Brown & Platt (now Mayer Brown), where he practiced real estate and corporate law from 1990 to 1995.

Hamid Moghadam, co-founder, chair and CEO of Prologis, says in a statement: ‘Ed has been an integral part of our company’s growth over the years. He was one of the Prologis leaders who helped steer the organization through the global financial crisis, putting the company in a position to combine with AMB in 2011 in a transformational merger. Our management team, the board of directors and the company have benefitted from his thoughtful guidance and counsel on a wide variety of issues over the years.’
