Arthur H. Adler

Managing Member
Caves Valley Partners LLC

Arthur H. Adler’s proudest achievement, he said, has nothing to do with the successful real estate development company he created in 2007.

Instead, he considers his greatest accomplishment to be raising his four children, David, Sara Beth, Aaron and Noah, “to be fine adults after the untimely passing of their mother when they were young.”

That said, his second top achievement is building a real estate development company, the 14-year-old, Towson-based Caves Valley Partners, that has focused on improving his hometown of Baltimore.

“I am especially proud of Caves Valley Partners’ role in the redevelopment of the core of Towson and the Federal Hill/Sharp Leadenhall communities,” Adler said.

As for his next pick, Adler points to his volunteer work at numerous organizations in the city, including the McDonogh School, The Jewish Community Center of Baltimore and Easter Seals.

Adler himself is a McDonogh graduate, as are his three sons. His education there, he said, changed the trajectory of his life, and his volunteer experience with the school has been the most meaningful volunteer work of his life.

“With my real estate background, my tenure on the McDonogh board and as the past chairman of the board came at the perfect time,” he said. “The focus of the board was re-inventing the campus after well over 100 years.

“I, along with others, were able to totally redesign the campus, build long-needed new structures and create what exists today as one of the finest PK-12 campuses in the country. McDonogh has thrived for 148 years and I hope will succeed for another 150 years. My involvement at McDonogh School will be a lasting legacy for my family.”

Adler has been in the real estate business since 1985. He is a former board member emeritus of Easter Seals, former board member of the Associated Jewish Charities and former president of the Jewish Community Center.

“I am especially proud of Caves Valley Partners’ role in the redevelopment of the Core of Towson and the Federal Hill/ Sharp Leadenhall communities.”
