Executive Director

Executive Director PictureMr. Paul G. Bakalis has a 3o year career in developing the potential of companies exceeding their own expectations for sustained growth and increased profits.  His personal culture is based on Integrity, Trust, Confidence, Collaboration, and Shared Success.

As a licensed architect and senior executive within both Top 10 design and construction firms, Paul has provided value in business and client management as well as team leadership for the delivery of education, technology, science, and healthcare projects throughout the Western region of the country, nationally, and around the world.

Paul operates from the perspective that, as designers and constructors, we advance ideas; ideas that enhance interactions, reflect new technologies, and enrich human activities rather than simply containing them.  He recognizes that our environment shapes our activities, so it is important to give particular attention both to the nature of those activities and to the design that advances them.

Paul feels privileged to be appointed to this position with the Arizona School Facilities Board and toward making a significant contribution along with the SFB Board Members in funding the capital investments that create engaged learning environments where children thrive.
