Derek Thornhill Broadens Leadership Role at 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,” 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 and growth of Saxony Partners since he joined the firm in 2012. For the past several years, Thornhill has been focused on providing effective software solutions for our real estate investment clients.
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.
