Bio: Paul Klassen, an inter-provincial journeyman carpenter, is the Founder and GM of Pinnacle Group which he established in 1998. He has been involved in general contracting, project management, design-build luxury renovations and custom homes since 1984. He brings with him a wealth of construction knowledge having spent considerable time as a developer in the custom home market, spec home development, multi-family structures as well as commercial retrofitting. Paul manages the company while being surrounded by a wealth of industry knowledge made possible by assembling a remarkable group of trades, suppliers and staff. He continues to stay abreast of the latest renovation trends and building code developments as an active member of the Calgary Region Home Builder’s Association, and has spent many years volunteering on Calgary’s Reno-Council.

He regularly participates in RenoMark™ events as well as provides project submissions to Calgary’s annual SAM Awards. His ongoing legacy is revolutionizing home renovations and custom built homes through his family-oriented approach. He believes his purposeful contribution to society is through the tangible support of Pinnacle’s client families in the design, creation and execution of a home that is their ‘favorite place to be’. The company slogan, Creating Homes for Life™ is at the heart of every client interaction. Paul is also dedicated to philanthropic causes, in particular those that benefit Calgary’s youth. He has been a proud supporter of the Safe Haven Foundation for many years and finds the intent of this organization to be an extension of his business philosophy. Simply put, he chooses to positively affect families; Safe Haven and Havens Way mentors and provides assistance to Teens who have experienced a challenging and difficult youth. Paul is delighted to contribute to the betterment of Calgary’s vulnerable youth.
