Paul Fikse is a licensed residential builder and the Vice President of Visbeen Associates. Raised in Illinois, Fikse studied architecture at Iowa State before attaining a degree in Business from Hope College in Holland, Michigan. He made West Michigan his permanent home after college, and has been an integral part of VAI’s development since 1993. As Vice President, Fikse’s responsibilities are widespread, but he spends the majority of his time focused on Design Development and Project Management. He and the staff complete precise drawings for each design job, and Fikse personally reviews all construction documents before they are submitted to the builder. His architectural training and practical building experience, combined with exceptional drafting skills, ensure that every Visbeen design is beautiful and functional.
Paul, age 47, and his wife Karla have three children, Emma, Sara and Ethan. The Fikse family loves horseback riding, and spends a lot of time at the barn grooming and riding their five trail horses.
