Eugene F. Reilly has joined AMB Property Corporation
"Over the last 20 years, Gene has been a leader in the development, acquisition, disposition, financing and leasing of more than $1 billion of industrial property -- experience that well qualifies him to lead AMB's domestic development activities," said Hamid R. Moghadam, AMB's chairman and chief executive officer. "We look forward to his leadership as we increase our level of development of High Throughput Distribution(R) facilities to better serve our customers and create value for our shareholders."
As one of the nation's largest owners of industrial real estate, the company's development business includes properties built for long-term investment by AMB, its private capital partners, and for sale to customers or investors. AMB currently has approximately three million square feet of industrial space under development or renovation.
Reilly joined AMB's Development Alliance Partner(R) National Development Company in Boston as a project manager in 1985 and rose to become its senior vice president of development. In 1992, he joined Cabot Partners where he served as director of leasing for five years. In 1997, he founded Cabot Industrial Trust's development group and, following the sale of the company, was a founding partner of Cabot Properties, where he most recently served as chief investment officer, a member of both the investment committee and board of directors.
He is a graduate of Harvard College and a member of the National Association of Industrial and Office Parks (NAIOP), where he serves on the board of directors of the Massachusetts Chapter and on the National Industrial Education Committee.
