As part of its strategic plan for growth in the Mid-Atlantic region, integrated solutions firm dancker has hired Cory Beahm to be Director of Strategic Accounts and Mare Reh to serve as Managing Director for Architecture & Design (A&D) Strategy.
“With their vast experience and in-depth knowledge of the local marketplace, we are confident Cory and Mare will play integral roles in our efforts to expand our market share in DC, Maryland, and Virginia,” says Nathan Kooi, President | Mid-Atlantic at dancker. “We’re thrilled to have both of them on board as members of our team.”
At dancker, Beahm will focus primarily on demonstrating the firm’s value as an interior's integrator to prospective clients. Reh, meanwhile, will bring together dancker’s go-forward A&D strategy, while continuing to lead new business opportunities through her expansive network of design firms and existing relationships within Steelcase.
Steelcase is the nation’s leading manufacturer of furniture, casegoods, seating, and space solutions for offices, hospitals, and classrooms. dancker is a Steelcase Premier Partner.
Beahm comes to dancker from Steelcase, where he worked with global organizations on their workplace strategy and interior needs. Prior to Steelcase, he held several roles at UPS. A resident of Frederick, MD, Beahm majored in economics at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.
Reh most recently served as an A&D Representative at American Office (now part of MOI). A graduate of Drexel University where she received a BS in interior architecture, Reh began her career as a Project Designer, initially with D2 Groups, LLC and then with Jacobs. She currently resides in Washington, DC.
The two new hires come on the heels of dancker’s July 2022 acquisition of Arbee, a Steelcase furniture dealer with offices in Gaithersburg, MD, and Piscataway, NJ, and a logistical facility in Beltsville, MD. The acquisition, which made dancker the largest Steelcase dealer in the Mid-Atlantic and New Jersey, further increased the firm’s ability to serve clients in both regions and follows the acquisitions of U.S. Business Interiors (USBI), formerly based in Capitol Heights, MD, and Baltimore -based Hyperspace.
Both Beahm and Reh will be based in dancker’s Mid-Atlantic Experience Centers, located in Baltimore, Gaithersburg, and Capitol Heights, MD. The firm also has a logistics facility in Capitol Heights and Experience Centers and logistics facilities in Somerville and Piscataway, NJ.
