Cindy Clare Begins Term as 2017 NAA Chairman of the Board
Northern Virginia real estate executive Cindy Clare, KETTLER Management, has begun her term as 2017 National Apartment Association (NAA) Chairman. She is the third woman to hold the position of Chairman.
Clare has been an active member of the property management industry for more than 30 years. Since joining Kettler in 2005, she has overseen more than 30,000 apartment homes in more than 100 communities throughout the mid-Atlantic. Clare’s operational and marketing expertise assisted in the development of new communities for both KETTLER and third-party owners, and expanded KETTLER Management’s geographic reach from D.C. to New York, South Carolina and Texas.
“Cindy has been a tremendous asset to KETTLER since joining the company over a decade ago, said Robert C. Kettler, Chairman and CEO of KETTLER. Our continued success in the property management business can be attributed to the outstanding leadership that Cindy has provided to her staff and our organization at large. I am confident that she will lead the NAA Board with the same passion and commitment that she has devoted to our organization. We are extremely proud of Cindy and all of her accomplishments and we look forward to watching her flourish in her new role as Chairman.”
“Cindy has been actively involved with NAA at every level,” NAA President and CEO Bob Pinnegar, CAE, said. “She positively represents the apartment housing industry and has its best interests at heart. I’m sure her passion and energy will be reflected in NAA and its members.”
A focus on the apartment industry’s charitable works ranks high among Clare’s goals. One of Clare’s goals as Chairman will be to promote NAA affiliates’ charitable works that are not readily recognized by the public. Clare said affiliates throughout the country spearhead backpack drives for underprivileged students, help in classrooms, work with students to improve reading skills, and advocate for housing and jobs.
“We know our affiliates, members and suppliers are all doing great work for their communities,” Clare said. “We just need to let the world know of all the great things the apartment industry does. Our members do more than just provide apartment housing, they are good corporate citizens who care greatly about their communities.”
Clare graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in International Relations at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, Virginia. Prior to her role at Kettler, she worked at The Mark Winkler Company and Charles E. Smith with a focus on residential operations and management. Additionally, she serves on the Virginia Tech RPO Advisory Board and is a frequent guest lecturer at the VT School of Property Management.
