Peter Baer

Our fearless founder is one of the most caring people around—he takes the time to ask about your family…and actually listens. From starting the firm in a basement back in the 90s to building relationships all over Oregon, Peter is one resourceful, visionary guy. He has built Pinnacle on the foundation of a strong commitment to constant improvement and client satisfaction. His portfolio of work is vast and varied, and the theme of enhancing communities has been a constant. Peter believes that success begins with a commitment to others, and he places high importance on helping team members reach their full potential.

Besides architecture, Peter knows about a lot of things—one of his favorites is ancient history. Speaking of which, his family has been in Bend since 1917; Peter and his wife live in the house his father built way back when.
