John Huskey is a pioneer in the senior housing industry, with more than four decades of experience in the development of affordable and market-rate multifamily communities for seniors and families.

John founded Meta Housing Corporation in 1993, and is responsible for guiding the vision of the company. Known as the first in the industry to develop arts-focused senior apartment communities that foster creativity and personal growth for residents, Meta Housing’s communities have garnered national awards for innovation and design, and are now serving as a model for other developers.

Prior to forming Meta Housing Corporation, John was President and CEO of Calmark Properties, where he successfully took the firm from a small development company to a market leader in less than five years.

John served as a technical advisor to both the Los Angeles County and San Bernardino County Housing Authorities, and served two terms on the Loan and Grant Committee for the State of California Department of Housing and Community Development.

In June of 2013, he was named by national commercial real estate magazine Commercial Property Executive as one of the “Most Influential People in Real Estate.” He has also been honored by the Building Industry Association Senior Housing Council and the Affordable Living For The Aging organization.
