John Babel

Board Member and Communications Chairman
(949) 395-4627

Board Member and Communications Chairman since July 2019. Former EVP & General Counsel of CalAtlantic Group, Inc., a Fortune 500 company. Retired in February 2018 following the sale of the company. My son and daughter are in the 7th and 5th grade and have attended Vista del Mar since Kindergarten. From the MAKO Foundation sponsored writing program, robotics program, and technology lab, to the Chromebooks used in every Vista del Mar classroom, my children have benefited in many ways from the good work of this foundation. My goals include improving communications with Vista del Mar parents to more clearly demonstrate the tremendous value the foundation brings to our children and to bring corporate governance best practices to this Board.
