Executive Team

Say hello to our executive team.

Jacob Johnson, CEO

As President of PREM Group, Jacob oversees the executive management team and provides company direction and leadership. As one of the fast growing private companies in Oregon, Jacob was at the forefront of realizing the value of integrated web-based technologies such as property and lease accounting software, accounts payable systems and financial reporting within the property management industry. He also realized the need for greater flexibility and wider interconnectivity between departmental systems, human resources, information technology and real estate professionals to more efficiently share real-time information with each other.

In 2003, this understanding inspired the development of an integrated technology system that provides secure and predictable access to data and information regardless of time and location to real estate owners, property managers, building engineers, tenants and vendors. Not only is his technological foresight cutting edge, but it has increased productivity and improved information flow for our employees and our customers.

Prior to purchasing PREM Group in 2001, Jacob was a commercial broker with Cushman and Wakefield. He has been fully engaged in the brokerage and management of commercial and multi-family real estate since 1995 representing private investors, institutional and corporate clients.
