Loren oversees the company's strategic planning and operations.
Having earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Stanford University in 1976, Loren entered the building industry as a laborer and carpenter's apprentice. He worked his way up through the ranks of construction management at Watt Industries for three years where he helped manage building and sales for a major housing tract in the Antelope Valley. Loren subsequently directed the construction of infill apartment buildings and low rise commercial centers for a Los Angeles based developer until 1986, when he founded Community Dynamics.

Loren has presided over the development, buildout and sale of more than 1,400 affordable homes. And in public-private partnerships with progressive cities, financial institutions and inspired design teams, he has pioneered some of the most innovative and uplifting affordable homeownership and residential mixed use communities in the United States. Loren brings a passion for perfection to his work, and looks for the same from his colleagues and staff. The Company is a two time winner of the HUD Secretary's Platinum and Gold Awards for Excellence in Affordable Housing, the building industry's highest honor for affordable homeownership communities.

A native of Los Angeles, Loren resides in Santa Monica with his wife Ping, who serves as Executive Director for UCLArts and Healing, a community non profit. Their daughter Lian serves as an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology at Stanford University, and lives with her husband Dan Gill, a social media entrepreneur, and their daughter Evie in the San Francisco Bay Area. Son Jake writes, directs and produces film and television. Loren currently serves on the Santa Monica Housing Commission and the Board of Governors for the Santa Monica Boys and Girls Clubs.
