Perry and Scheer Launch Boston-Based Lab Workspace Services Venture

Perry and Scheer Partners today announce the formation of Bridge, an advisory group providing workspace services to biotechnology and other users of advanced, functionally-driven workspaces and consulting services to the laboratory real estate investor community.

Bridge will offer an established Boston-based real estate platform and best-in-class location analytics with a veteran perspective on science-focused real estate. Bridge will combine its own staff, along with certain existing staff of both Perry and Scheer. Among other things, Bridge will extensively apply “GOsaic,” Perry’s proprietary geostatistical set of analytical tools, in its advisory to help businesses make optimal workspace location choices.

“We are excited to be able to extend our high level of client service to the Boston market, and to partner with such a nimble, innovative group like Perry,” said Matt Brady, Principal at Scheer, “our expertise and ability to effectively translate scientific requirements into facilities-based solutions will help our clients focus on their core business, reduce time to market, and increase flexibility in this volatile industry sector.”

Brady leads Scheer’s lab real estate practice, which has long been prominent in lab real estate services in the Greater Washington, DC market.

“Bridge adds a robust transaction engine to what is already the preferred platform for sophisticated location advisory in this market,” said Brendan Carroll, Director of Intelligence at Perry, “businesses expect the best in technology- guided advisory, particularly in the context of heavy demand for talent, shifting commuting patterns, and the emergence of new successful commercial zones regionally; at Bridge, we can deliver that.”

Mike Edward Elevated to President of Rapidly Growing CRE Advisory Perry

Perry announces the appointment of 35-year real estate services veteran Michael S. Edward as President. Mr. Edward joined Perry in July 2016 as Executive Vice President and has played a key role in expansion of the Perry platform.

“From the moment he joined the firm, Mike has been a critical component of Perry’s growth in brand recognition, personnel, and market share. As he assumes oversight of all aspects of its brokerage operations, we are excited for the future of Perry under Mike’s leadership,” remarked Richard Beal, President of A.W. Perry, Inc, which remains parent company of the unit. Simultaneous with the January 1, 2019 elevation of Edward, the firm implemented what it terms a “soft rebrand,” principally consisting of a naming simplification to Perry, from Perry Brokerage Associates, an identity it has had since its 2011 founding.

The adjusted identity is intended to combine the company’s corporate lineage - one of the most well-respected in New England - with the ability to advise from the fullest set of contemporary options.

“It is humbling and exciting to be named President of Perry,” stated Mike Edward. “We have a highly talented and dedicated team of professionals who serve our clients’ needs. I look forward to supporting them as we grow our team and our platform in the coming years.”

In addition to his role as President, Edward will also Chair Perry’s Executive Team, which along with Mr. Beal and Executive Vice President Jonathan H. Gifford, provides strategic direction for the company.

Edward’s lengthy career has included positions at Newmark Knight Frank, Lincoln Property Company, and Colliers Meredith & Grew. A member of the Greater Boston Real Estate Board, he will serve as the Chair of GBREB’s Finance Committee in 2019 as well as serving on the Board of Directors of the Commercial Brokers Association. A licensed real estate broker in Massachusetts, Edward holds a degree in finance from Providence College.
