ORLANDO, Fla. (June 12, 2014) -- Alice Tanchel, Francis Chow and Will Gorman have been appointed to the board of advisors for SightPlan, an Orlando-based software company focused on modernizing multifamily resident service and asset management with its approach to managing work orders, solving resident issues and enhancing asset value.

Tanchel, managing director at Trammell Crow Residential; Chow, chief strategy officer at Renter’s Voice and Ellis Partners; and Gorman, chief architect at Pentaho, are all respected experts in their fields who bring distinct value to SightPlan, according to Joseph Westlake, co-founder of the company.

Westlake said Tanchel’s familiarity with multifamily operations and property development will provide insight as the company expands its footprint. Chow brings financial expertise and platform building to help measure resident loyalty, and Gorman’s technical background makes him an incredible resource to SightPlan’s development and product teams.
