After serving for years as the Executive Director of Pereview Software by Saxony Partners, Derek Thornhill has been named the Vice President of Saxony’s overall real estate practice.
“I’m honored and excited to have the opportunity to lead the real estate team here at Saxony and Pereview,” Thornhill says. “We have an outstanding team of professionals that does great work on behalf of our clients. My goal is to support them how ever I can and to give them more opportunities to do that work.”
Thornhill has been a part of the vision, growth, and delivery of Pereview (Saxony’s software solution for real estate investment management) since the software launched in 2012. That will not change, as Pereview is a key offering for Saxony’s real estate practice.
“Pereview has become a trusted brand within the real estate investment management space over these past several years,” Thornhill says. “That’s due to the great team of developers, relationship managers, and salespeople that work on Pereview. It’s also because Pereview is a one-of-a-kind solution – the only real estate software that aggregates all your data into one place across the entire life of the asset.”
“That will continue to be the case going forward. Pereview will keep growing – as will our overall real estate practice.”
In his expanded role, Thornhill will lead the team that delivers on our promise to help companies use their data as a means for accomplishing their business goals. Saxony’s real estate offers both technology support (data strategy, integration, Yardi services), and business consulting – in fact, it’s the only such firm that pairs deep industry knowledge and technical expertise.
“We are built by real estate professionals, for real estate professionals,” Thornhill says. “The benefit to our clients is that we’re not going to serve up technology as a blanket solution to your business problems. We know the challenges that real estate professionals face, because we’ve been in their shoes. That experiences helps us discover and implement solutions that actually work.”
Indeed, Thornhill brings a wealth of real-world real estate experience to this new role. He previously served as a Director at RealFoundations and, prior to that, he was a managing partner at Longview Capital Group. In those roles, Thornhill provided management consulting services to real estate clients in the United States and abroad. He has managed large and diverse teams and resources across countless projects.
Though his title has changed and expanded, Thornhill has been and still is one of the Partners of Saxony Partners.
Outside the office, Thornhill enjoys…well, pretty much all sports. Why? Because his kids play most of them. When he’s not at a game, you’ll most likely find Derek reading, hunting, or building something with his hands.
