Blackpoint Cyber, an Ellicott City, MD-based cybersecurity firm, in a recent press release statement on Thursday, Apr. 4th 2019, announced appointing David Peterson as the company’s new lead in charge of Blackpoint’s Smart Property cybersecurity offering. Peterson has over twenty-two years of real estate experience in the commercial property industry, and has previously worked as the Regional Managing Director and Market Leader at Colliers International from 2011 to 2019, in its DC office; as the Director of Property Management for the mid-Atlantic market at Grubb & Ellis; and with Clarion Partners in DC on high profile assignments for separate accounts and institutional clients.
Recently, Blackpoint entered into a partnership agreement with Colliers International on providing cyber security for commercial real estate via Colliers’ new ‘Neighborhood Curated by Colliers’ platform, and thus this decision to hire Peterson is nothing but monumental in this peak time.
“The product and platform at Blackpoint Cyber are on the cutting-edge of technology required to safeguard commercial properties from cyber threats”, says David Peterson. “Joining this team was an easy decision because their product and service are superior.”
“There is a crucial need for cybersecurity in smart real estate”, says Jon Murchison, CEO of Blackpoint. “With David’s history and expertise, he is the perfect candidate to lead and develop our relationships in this industry so we can more effectively provide security to building owners, asset managers, and property management organizations.”
