LAKE FOREST, CA-Professional Community Management of California Inc. has named Donny Disbro as the new CEO of the firm, which is the nation’s third-largest senior housing management firm and California’s second biggest manager of homeowner associations. Disbro succeeds former co-CEOs Russ Disbro and Jeff Olsen in his new post.

PCM has expanded rapidly in recent years, growing from 175 to 277 associations in the last decade–including 25% growth in the past four years–specializing in management of large-scale residential communities and resort-style communities on site, as well as managing communities from the company’s regional offices. In addition, Russ Disbro and Olsen helped to establish the California Association of Community Managers and directed PCM in managing one of the nation’s first resort-style active adult communities, Laguna Woods Village in Laguna Woods, CA.

Donny Disbro, who has been on PCM’s management team for 12 years, joined the company in 1997. He began his PCM career as a portfolio manager, overseeing a portfolio of common interest developments, later becoming director of PCM’s Internet Services Division, where he utilized online services to increase the company’s standard of customer service and improve cost margins for PCM clients. He was named vice president of marketing and business development and led PCM’s management team in converting new communities’ homeowner association boards from builder-led to homeowner-governed.

PCM specializes in the management of common interest developments of homeowner associations for family-oriented master-planned developments, subdivisions of master-planned developments, active-adult master-planned communities and boutique communities throughout Southern California. It manages a portfolio of nearly 100,000 units in 277 community associations, representing a combined real estate value in excess of $45 billion.
