The Global Food Exchange™ Board of Managers has been privileged with welcoming another distinguished member to their team, Mr. Walter C. Rakowich. Mr. Rakowich is a former CEO of Prologis, the leading owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate, focused on global and regional markets across the Americas, Europe and Asia. He brings a wealth of international industrial real estate and logistics knowledge and expertise to the rapidly growing business based in Littleton, CO.

Richard Lackey, CEO of Global Food Exchange™, founded the company with the mission to provide the world's most efficient and effective platform of critical relief resources, available when and where they are needed. "Not only are we excited about the affirmation of our mission from high caliber individuals like Walt, but having quality individuals like Walt on our team ensures the success of our mission and vision,” stated Mr. Lackey.

Mr. Rakowich’s business acumen spans all units of business, however the added value of his expertise in industrial real estate and logistics will be key for Global Food Exchange™, as it continues to expand its international network of approved storage facilities.

Global Food Exchange™ acts as a manufacturer of standardized Relief Vaults, which provides improved nutrition and related disaster supplies. The vaults are purchased through the exchange by a network of distributors, including benevolently-minded investment funds, and held in strategic locations around the globe. When disaster strikes, these vaults are made immediately available for Governments and NGOs who provide direct relief to victims.

With the magnitude of recent natural disasters, whether in the pan-pacific region with typhoon Haiyan or even closer to home with hurricane Sandy, the call for faster and more efficient relief immediately following these events is very real. Global Food Exchange™ is a benevolent solution that is only as strong as its participants. To learn more please visit:
