Jeff Kaye, CEO of Kaye/Bassman had this to say about Blayne, "Blayne Rush is one of the most driven, dedicated and loyal associates that I have ever worked with in my twenty + years at Kaye/Bassman. He was one of the biggest producer’s ever in our company’s history and one of the fastest ever to be named a Managing Partner and then soon after a Managing Director of the firm. His work ethic and intensity was unmatched by virtually anyone. He left our organization several years ago yet still remains involved in our corporate community and someone I am still proud to call a respected colleague and trusted friend."
