The Austin Business Journal (ABJ) has recognized our own Holly Tachovsky as a 2019 Profiles in Power & Women of Influence award winner. The award celebrates female leaders that are pushing Central Texas to a better future. This is the third consecutive year that Tachovsky was nominated.
The 2019 Profiles in Power award highlights women who have not only driven company success but have also demonstrated strong leadership skills and prioritized community involvement. This year, the ABJ nominated 126 women across a variety of companies and industries. Within this list, 20 were named finalists and six won.
We’re excited to celebrate Tachovsky’s win on the heels of BuildFax’s 10th anniversary. Over the past decade, Tachovsky has grown BuildFax from just an idea to a nationally recognized company that transforms unstructured data into business-critical property insights for the largest insurance and financial institutions in the world. Since early 2019, Tachvosky has led BuildFax through a number of key milestones, including overseeing a comprehensive re-brand while serving as a thought leader for the housing industry amidst a slowing housing market. In fact, over the past few months, Tachovsky was featured in Bloomberg, CNN and Yahoo Finance for her housing insights.
In addition to her professional successes, Tachovsky has increased her community involvement, founding the ATX Ladies Lab, a professional network of women that use the space to be vulnerable and real with each other, while also feeding a greater mission of funding Austin’s innovative entrepreneurs through JUST, a micro-lending program.
Tachovsky also maintains involvement in other Austin-based programs, including Impact Hub, where she provides mentorship to entrepreneurs looking to create solutions for global pressing issues; Sputnik ATX, an Austin-based accelerator that specifically supports maker-founders; and Code2College, a nonprofit whose mission is to dramatically increase the number of underrepresented students who enter college with STEM majors.
