Mr. Heineman served as vice president of marketing, leasing and sales at McCormick Properties, the real estate arm of McCormick & Co., from 1970 to 1977, during the development of the Hunt Valley Business Community and Security Industrial Park.
In 1977, he went to New York City, where he served for three years as president of the International Paper Realty Corp., the real estate division of International Paper Co. After returning to Baltimore in 1980, he became president of Constellation Properties.
He also was a director of the Baltimore Area Council, Boy Scouts of America, a past president of the Baltimore County Chamber of Commerce, a past committee chairman for United Way, a member of the Maryland State Emergency Management Response Commission Advisory Council and a member of the board of directors for American Red Cross of Central Maryland.
As chairman of the Red Cross Disaster and Emergency Services, he helped create a nationally approved disaster relief plan.

For his outstanding volunteer efforts, he was awarded the Red Cross' John T. Menzies Award in 1991.
