Prologis UK’s Wayne Porter Wins Walter C. Rakowich Award

Wayne Porter, UK property manager, was recognized with the company’s highest honor for community service in 2015, the Walter C. Rakowich Award. “The Community Engagement Committee thought Wayne was an outstanding candidate,” noted Andrew Griffiths, managing director, Prologis UK. “We’re all proud he brought the award home to the UK.”

Wayne’s philanthropic efforts include:

• Organizing a team to decorate at Birmingham’s Children Hospital for the holiday season

• Promoting a Prologis-branded football kit for a school near a Prologis development

• Training an under 12’s football team
