Grant Bowen // Founder & Principal
Grant has spent his entire professional career managing high-end residential projects for clients in the Bay Area, New York, Montana, Hawaii, and Central America. He began his career at one of the Bay Area’s most prominent family offices, where orchestrating and protecting the interests of the principals was paramount. That experience featured Grant’s development of effective and efficient frameworks for establishing clear expectations, hiring the most capable team members, and facilitating exceptional communication throughout the planning and building process. Following success in a family office setting, Grant brought his experience, creativity, rigor, and exceptional service to the broader market by starting Peak Projects in 2014.
A Michigan native, Grant earned his undergraduate degree at Brown University, where he pole vaulted on its NCAA Division I Track & Field team. He currently resides in Los Altos, CA with his wife and two children.
