Vanguard Management provides a team of qualified professionals with a proven record of success in managing commercial planned development and condominium owners' associations.  The Vanguard Team is led by its Principal and CEO, John Calhoun, and its Director of Management Services and Senior Association Manager, Cyndi Brown.

John C. Calhoun
Principal and CEO

Mr. Calhoun came to the Vanguard Team with over twenty years of management, strategic marketing and development experience gained from career pursuits within the commercial property and hospitality industries. He oversees the strategic business development and operational management for Vanguard Management. After graduating from Cornell University in 1981, John spent over ten years negotiating, marketing, and managing specialized leases and management services agreements in major commercial property developments as well as overseeing commercial acquisitions; first, in the New York metropolitan area, then, in Southern California.  In the early '90s, Mr. Calhoun shifted his focus to the hospitality industry and developed a number of successful businesses before returning to the commercial real estate arena by joining Vanguard as a principal in 2003.  He also has served as a director and officer on the Boards of three separate community homeowners associations in two countries and covering nearly thirty years of experience.

Cyndi Brown
Director of Management Services/Senior Association Manager

Ms. Brown came to the Vanguard Team in 2011 and possesses a solid background in commercial property management.  In addition to working for one of the largest commercial master-plan developers in the North County Los Angeles area, Cyndi also managed a campus of commercial office properties in the Santa Clarita Valley for nearly three years just prior to joining Vanguard as an Association Manager.  With over five years of varied commercial property management and administrative experience, Cyndi quickly and capably adjusted to the role of managing a mutual benefit corporation, not just an asset, for our client associations.  She has continued to grow in her knowledge of this very specialized management services industry and now also oversees the development of managers and staff for Vanguard in additional to successfully overseeing a very challenging portfolio of condominium and planned development associations.  Cyndi also serves as a director on her local community association's Board.
