MB Real Estate Announces Promotion of Director Of Information Technology Damon Brill To Senior Vice President
Chicago, IL | October 21, 2021
MB Real Estate (MBRE) has announced that Damon Brill, the company's IT department director, has been promoted to senior vice president. Brill has been with the company since 2008 and coordinates the company's many tech-focused hardware, software, and education needs.
"Damon has always leveraged tech to offer MBRE creative and proactive solutions for foreseen and unforeseen challenges alike," said MBRE CEO Peter Ricker. "I'm happy that MBRE can recognize Damon for his contributions and continue to provide support for him to address the future needs of MBRE and our clients."
Before he arrived at MBRE, Brill worked as an IT certification instructor, corporate trainer, and consultant at several companies. At Brookdale Senior Living, Brill provided strategic and operational direction for support staff, overseeing them as they assisted end users with hardware and software tools.
At MBRE, Brill has led the IT group to develop a secure, reliable, and innovative information technology environment for all employees. His team has addressed varied needs from the diverse groups within the company, from property management and corporate services to accounting and human resources. Brill's experience has ensured MBRE's teams can serve clients from the office, the various buildings within our portfolio, and from home when necessary. In 2020, at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Brill kept critical operations and projects running. The lockdown led to a full work-from-home environment and caused a major realignment of resources, from remote connectivity to sourcing hardware for end users, in addition to adopting and supporting new communication technologies. Brill and his team worked tirelessly and successfully avoided major workflow obstructions for all of MBRE's departments.
