Kyle Kavanaugh

President/CEO

Kyle Kavanaugh has been pairing retailers and restaurants with real estate since 1987. Early in his career he was an agent with Lee and Associates in San Diego and was employed as an in house Corporate Real Estate Manager for Blockbuster Entertainment Group. In that residence, he oversaw site selection in Southern California.

In 1994, Kyle founded Main+Main Inc. to expand his scope and to manifest his philosophy that partnership, coupled with industry knowledge, begets success… and success attracts top professionals. On that notion, he cultivated a team of leading agents in dynamic markets and set out to systematically extend the reach of retail real estate programs throughout North America. Examining Main+Main’s client base reflects that he has succeeded in that effort.

Today, Main+Main has gathered some of the highest-performing associates in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Orange County. It boasts an exclusive client list of 40+ established and nascent brands, predominantly in the Retail and Food & Beverage category. As the founding partner, Kyle is the primary guidance of the group and assists many of its clients with real estate expansion and development.

Ashley Knox

Associate Director

Ashley Knox does everything full tilt.

She had a nine-year career in the dining/catering industry before attending college. She chose a double major at UCI, earning degrees in both Political Science and Dramatic Arts. And, she doesn’t just enjoy the occasional Saturday afternoon, sailing with friends. She’s an ardent sailboat racer, setting course up and down both U.S. coastlines.

Perhaps, most applicably, during the three years prior to joining Main + Main in 2010, Ashley worked as a leasing agent for a large, Southern California landlord and as Advertising Sales Director for a retail real estate trade magazine. As a result, she wears her Tenant Rep hat with a whole host of insight into every negotiating position.

Today, Ashley attracts equally full-tilt clients in the food & beverage, fitness and specialty retail sectors, specifically start-ups. She was integral in the initial three-year expansion of Nekter Juice Bar, closing deals on its first 25 locations. Equinox and Soul Cycle have executed equally-ambitious rollout strategies, with Ashley’s guidance. This bent toward rapid expansion of timely, niche concepts is proving just-the-ticket for her now. But Ashley can predict the ebb and flow of retail markets, like the wind.

Mike Clark

Executive Director

Mike Clark has a unique pedigree: 20 years of Commercial Real Estate experience. While BRE ultimately became Cushman & Wakefield, Mike remained sharpening his niche. Today, he is one of a rarified group of top retail producers in the San Diego market specializing in new-to-market clients retailers, corporate strategy, and retail/restaurant expansions.

Mike has achieved impressive goals for clients like Carl’s Jr., Habit Burger, Buca di Beppo, and Urbane Cafe, as well as retailers, developers and landlords. And the accolades have followed: he was Costar Power Broker in 2009, 2010, and 2012; San Diego ICSC Chair from 2008-2011 with 11 years active committee involvement; and a member of the Leadership Development Group.

His move to Main + Main in 2016 heralds a growth opportunity for Mike, even at his level.

Steady yet ready. It’s a surf thing.

John Rootlieb

Executive Director

John Rootlieb is true blue in every sense: a Laguna Beach native, a bodysurfer, a career Broker.

Armed with an interest in international culinary discovery and his UCLA degree, John joined the sales team at Fox Sports Net West in 1999. The spike in sales revenue under his purview, along with new-client acquisitions, garnered attention. By 2001, he was tapped to be Sports Marketing Manager at Professional Sports Publications. But, it wasn’t his calling. In 2003, John moved to Main + Main.

From the beginning, John took to Commercial Real Estate like a dolphin to water. Today he is a prolific and highly effective Partner, expanding developing enterprises throughout Southern California, Hawaii, and Nevada. To bookend his expertise in marketing and retail expansion, John joined the Summerlin Mall Landlord-Rep Team, assisting in leasing 1.6 million square feet of retail space.

Anne Singleton

Director

Anne Singleton is a 32 year veteran of commercial real estate and an 18 year practicing yogini. It merits mention because Anne’s sweeping-yet-strict training is reflected in every aspect of the business – from leasing to development to tenant representation – in its intention, its self-discipline, its thoroughness.

A graduate of Northwestern University, Anne launched her career in real estate with specialty leasing and permanent leasing work at the Equity Group (EGI) in Chicago. After a whirlwind tour of working at several Equity owned shopping centers, she permanently relocated to Southern California to join the Santa Monica-based REIT, Macerich, and grew to Vice President of Leasing. She played a lead role in the pre-leasing and P.R. of beach-chic Santa Monica Place, personally completing 80,000 s.f. of deals (including CB2, Nike¸ Barneys Co-Op, Burberry, Coach, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany) and directing the remaining 50,000 s.f. of deals on time for the August 2010 grand opening.

At Creative Asset Partners, Anne turned her attention to the flip-side of the deal – the tenant – where she focused on street retail, representing both landlords and tenants in West L.A. and West Hollywood. She worked on myriad SoCal retail projects, providing insight and strategy in upgrading and enhancing the existing tenant mix.

Anne joined Main + Main team in 2013, with a substantial offering: her extensive background in landlord representation and tenant transactions, and a notable expertise in contemporary retail markets.

From Om to Namaste, she’s a pro.
