Edward M. Kashian
In the fall of 2006 he became the Executive Director of Fresno-based Lance-Kashian, a firm he founded in 1964. With a passion for the industry and his community, Mr. Kashian’s developments are renowned throughout the central valley for their beauty as well as their operational efficiency. With a focus on developing his community, not just his property, Mr. Kashian has become an iconic figure in the social, political and developmental fabric of Fresno. Always with his eye focused on the future, Mr. Kashian’s developments – including all of the properties currently under Lance-Kashian management – have set the standard for Class A office developments to power centers and the current generation of open-air life style centers.
Always moving forward, Mr. Kashian is currently a central partner in the development of Fancher Creek – Central California’s first comprehensive mixed-use development – and Campus Pointe – a dynamic mix of retail, entertainment and education along with residential options for students as well as a hotel for campus visitors.
Mr. Kashian’s dedication to the industry is equaled by his social commitment to Fresno. Long active in civic affairs, Mr. Kashian has applied vision along with his fiscal and financial management expertise to many groups including Community Hospital Medical System, University of California, Merced campus, Fresno Madera Agency on Aging, San Joaquin River Trust and has served as the environmental appointee to the San Joaquin River Conservancy. He and his wife Jeanne are the parents of four adult children and five grandchildren.
