Meet Our Team

By creating positive solutions, we all win.

David M. Schlachman

Founder & Principal

For almost 30-years, David has actively been a part of the development world. In 2001, he formed DMS Development, LLC to grow the company and create more opportunity for retail tenancy. Through the years, the company has successfully been a preferred developer for several retailers and focused on various types of development including single-tenancy, shopping centers, mixed-use and student housing. David’s financial background helps guide the DMS Team towards profitable projects that continue to successfully meet regulatory changes and economic hurdles in a forward thinking direction.

Michael J. Ertel, P.E.

Principal

Michael’s civil engineering background plays a key role in each successful project. His experience transcends all levels of site entitlement and enables him to be a strategic partner connecting engineering design and business goals within each development stage. Prior to joining the DMS Team, Michael led an exemplary career on such notable projects as UMBC Research Park, Owings Mills Newtown Area 3, Airport Square Technology Park, Parkview Trail and Glyndon Square Shopping Center, to name a few!

Wendy S. Crites

Principal

In 2005, Wendy joined the DMS Team as a land acquisition specialist. It quickly became apparent that she had a tenacity with difficult assemblages that needed a deep understanding of how entitlements work and building long-lasting relationships with owners and agencies alike where thoughtful dialogue and planning could occur. Building upon this, Wendy now is a partner helping to oversee and manage all projects from inception, thru leasing and beyond construction. Her prior experience in residential and commercial leasing and property management only strengthened her successes.

Kimberly A. Hoshall

Office Manager & Bookkeeper

As an integral part of the DMS Team, Kim brings her proficiency in Business Administration procedures to the daily management of a busy office setting with an active list of multiple projects to financially track and maintain records for.
