Holly (Ward) Tachovsky
Holly Tachovsky is a serial entrepreneur and the CEO and Founder of BuildFax, the leading provider of property condition and history insights for globally-recognized insurance, financial and real estate institutions. Holly established a previously nonexistent class of property data, navigating the complexities of the insurance industry to transform it into value-driving insights. Under her leadership, BuildFax has grown from a startup founded at the height of the 2008 financial crisis to a multi-million dollar company, growing at a double digit CAGR for the last five years.
Holly is passionate about making the whole pie bigger and mentors early stage startups through The Impact Hub, Tech Ranch Austin, and Sputnik ATX while also taking time to summit at least a dozen mountains (so far), explore 38 national parks with her family, and nerd out on real estate. Her focus on fostering a rewarding working environment has led to BuildFax earning Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top Company Culture award and Austin’s Best Places to Work, while her innovative approach to real estate data prompted her Woman’s Way Woman of the Year/Business of the Year (2018) and Housing Wire’s Woman of Influence (2017) wins.
