Colliers Pinkard takes aim at nonprofit sector

March 25, 1994|By Timothy J. Mullaney | Timothy J. Mullaney,Sun Staff Writer

The Baltimore real estate firm Colliers Pinkard expanded in a new direction yesterday, announcing that it had hired former Baltimore economic development chief David Gillece as a vice president in the firm's consulting group.

Colliers Pinkard said Mr. Gillece will coordinate consulting services for corporate, nonprofit and government clients. While the firm has worked for government and nonprofit clients to some degree, Chief Operating Officer David Frederick said Mr. Gillece's hiring marks an emphasis on such clients.

"It's a $30 million industry in this state," Mr. Frederick said of the nonprofit sector. "There's an awful lot of large nonprofits."

Colliers Pinkard is best known as a commercial real estate

brokerage firm, but is active in property management, consulting, appraisal and other services.

The firm said Mr. Gillece would begin work April 4. He now runs a consulting business, Gillece and Associates Inc., that has worked for public and nonprofit economic development groups, including the Greater Baltimore Committee and the Maryland Department of Economic and Employment Development.

Mr. Gillece left city government in 1991 after overseeing the merger of two related agencies to form Baltimore Development Corp.
