Rockville, MD – A longtime facilities-management expert in the biotechnology sector is joining Scheer Partners’ leadership team.
Scheer Partners, a leading provider of commercial real estate services in the greater Washington and Baltimore metropolitan regions, announced today that it has named David P. Kaye a senior vice president.
Kaye has more than 35 years of experience in the construction, renovation, maintenance and overall management of biotech facilities and is also a licensed commercial realtor.
He is currently a sales associate with Mackintosh Realtors and president of Facilities Management Solutions in Frederick, a facilities-services company primarily serving the biotech sector.
Previously, he spent 17 years at the American Red Cross, first as director of facilities management for its biomedical research and development division, and later on as the division’s senior director of facilities and research services.
In this capacity, he directed numerous major functional areas, such as physical plant operations and maintenance, construction engineering, environmental health and safety, animal research operations, lab support services, and telecommunications.
Kaye began his new position at Scheer Partners on September 14 and is working out of the company’s Rockville office.
“We’re fortunate and quite pleased that David is coming to work with us,” says Robert Scheer, the founder and president of Scheer Partners. “His knowledge and experience in managing biotech facilities strongly complements our business model and presence in the health-care industry.”
At Scheer Partners, Kaye will focus on business development, brokerage, and construction and facilitymanagement projects.
A resident of Frederick, Kaye says that working for Scheer Partners is exciting because it allows him to get more deeply involved in the health-tech community. He’s also known Robert Scheer and Henry Bernstein, a company senior vice president, since the early 1990s. Kaye and the Scheer Partners team even struck some deals together in years past.
“Scheer Partners is extremely well connected in the health-tech industry and has a wonderful reputation,” Kaye says. “I’m really excited about this opportunity.”
Prior to his career with the Red Cross, Kaye worked in academia, as director of utilities and energy management at Stanford University, and also for Yale University.
Kaye, who received a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Management from the University of Maryland, College Park, was in the U.S. Army for 25 years, most of this time with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
