Goizueta BBA alumni, Jeffrey Schwartz 81BBA talks about his career and success in a recent Today article.
“There’s little glamor in the warehouse business, but it’s made Jeffrey Schwartz a very rich man and a bed partner with GIC
Jeffrey Schwartz leaves very little doubt that he is one very smart cookie. A graduate of Harvard Business School and first in his class at Emory University in 1981 with a Bachelor of Business Administration, he answers most questions without a moment’s hesitation and rattles off figures from the top of his head.
He is also Deputy Board Chairman and Chairman of the executive committee of Global Logistics Properties (GLP) — Asia’s largest warehouse space provider, whose biggest stakeholder is the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation (GIC).
It has been only four years since he and Mr Ming Z Mei co-founded GLP, in the wake of the global financial crisis. Mr Schwartz was then Chairman and Chief Executive of Prologis, the world’s largest owner, manager and developer of industrial warehouse facilities.”
