Senator Edward M. Kennedy referred to Gerry as a “friend, advisor, and wise counsel,” and thanked him with “a million thanks for the excellent job…in holding my beliefs high for me, for Massachusetts, and for the nation.”

When Gerry signed on to help Senator Edward Markey in his 2020

re-election campaign, his spokesperson stated, “Gerry Kavanaugh has dedicated his career in public service to improving the lives and futures of Massachusetts families and communities. The Markey campaign is proud to have his support.”


CMK Development Partners is a real estate development, investment and advisory firm with extensive experience across a broad variety of asset classes. 


CMK was founded in 2019 by Dr. Gerry Kavanaugh.  The management team of CMK has a combined 50 years of real estate development and investment experience.  Members of CMK’s leadership team have played key roles in some of the largest and most successful real estate projects in Massachusetts.

The principals of CMK have raised more than $100 million in financing over the past three years alone, and have constructed a number of different projects, including the renovation of historic buildings in older cities for higher education purposes, the historic renovation of public buildings for residential housing, both rental and condominiums, and have played important consulting roles in a number of other projects.


Currently, CMK is completing a 24 unit mixed-use building in Weymouth with 7,500 square feet of retail space, and is now breaking ground on two other projects. One is the construction of a mixed-use building in Columbian Square. The second is a mixed-use project in downtown Natick. Both projects will provide a variety of affordable units.


One of the reasons that CMK is successful, of course, is its 50 years of experience in regulating the development of a wide variety of development in a variety of cities in Massachusetts, including Boston, Quincy, Salem, and Lawrence.
