BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS

Building Engines™, the commercial real estate (CRE) industry’s innovation leader for property operations platforms, and backed by Wavecrest Growth Partners, today announced the appointment of Scott Morey, Executive Director of GPG Advisers, to the company’s Board of Directors.

With 30 years of global experience in the real estate industry, Morey has worked with numerous real estate owners, operators, developers, and advisors with the objective of maximizing the value of their holdings.

He is a longtime member of the Realcomm Advisory Council and has served in executive-level roles for several large real estate and CRE tech organizations including General Growth Properties (GGP); Alvarez and Marsal and RealFoundations in the United Kingdom; Cityscape in Lagos, Nigeria; Equity Office Properties; Ernst & Young Kenneth Leventhal; and Accenture.

Morey has provided strategic advice relative to market positioning, improving underlying operations and using technology in ways that creates real, long-term, sustainable value. He has developed a strong reputation for his knowledge, creativity, integrity and ability to execute.

“Scott has the perfect background to advise and direct as we expand our leadership position in building operations intelligence software,” said Building Engines CEO, Tim Curran. “Scott’s commercial real estate experiences are outstanding and rare – spanning software development, business and IT strategy consulting across all categories of real estate and technology market spaces. His perspective as the ex-CIO of one of the world’s largest commercial property owners, and experience in international markets will add meaningful value to our customers and team. Scott will be instrumental in helping us shape our product roadmap, buy-build-partner strategy, and international expansion plans. I couldn’t be happier to welcome Scott to the Board and look forward to working with him.”

"I'm excited to be joining the Building Engines mission to drive intelligence into Commercial Real Estate operations," said Morey. "This company is on the leading edge of CRE technology innovation, with a clear commitment to serving world-class organizations of all sizes in improving the value of their underlying assets. We are aligned on the same vision of the future: connected buildings and systems operating with efficiency and delivering economic value to real estate investors and operators as well as the customers they serve."

Today’s news caps a year of steady growth and traction for the growing SaaS company. In the past twelve months, the team announced the addition of Tim Curran as CEO and Daniel Cozza as Chief Product Officer; completed the acquisition of software firm AwareManager; expanded its headquarters in downtown Boston; and released the world’s first AI-powered intelligent building conversation platform, BengieTM.

“Scott is a great addition to our Board of Directors,” confirmed David Osborn, Founder, and Chairman of Building Engines. “We’ve known him since his days as CIO at Equity Office where he helped define their industry-leading technology path. He is a direct, no-nonsense expert in the field, with a long record of success advising the leading real estate owners and operators in our market. With Scott’s long tenure in the PropTech community, his broad network of influential leaders, and demonstrated success as an impactful advisor, I know he’ll help drive our product and organization to another level.”
