Hello, we’re speaking with Steve Barrios, senior vice president, global FP&A for Prologis.
QUESTION: Steve, over the next 12 months, what are your priorities as an FP&A leader?
BARRIOS: So to give some context: Prologis is the world’s leading global industrial owner, operator, developer, and acquirer of warehouses. Our biggest tenant is Amazon. So you see us around the globe. As a leader in FP&A, what I want to do is put the “A” back in FP&A. I want to get out of the world of reporting what happened. I want to get out of the world of telling people what happened in the past and look to the future. I want to tell my executive team what trends we should be watching out for. Look around the corners, use the data that we are generating out of Host (Analytics) and the platform to be able to educate – not only my team – but also management as to the items that we should be on the watch for and where things are going.
