Ms. Baskin, noting that she has hit the ground running, stated, “I am elated to rejoin Tim and to be part of the exciting story that is unfolding with Scheer’s entry into the Philadelphia market. Their market knowledge is remarkable and I am already seeing how their unique perspective on scientific real estate will benefit not only life sciences businesses from our area, but clients from around the nation and throughout the world.”
