Phil Bakke

President of Bakke Development

Mr. Bakke oversees all development, contracting, leasing, and management of the firm's commercial projects. Since founding Bakke Development Corp. in 1996, Mr. Bakke has led the company through dramatic growth, expanding its focus from multifamily development into other markets, including retail, self-storage, and mixed-use land development.


Building on decades of real estate and development experience, deep market knowledge, and strong relationships within the architecture, construction, and investor communities, Mr. Bakke has developed hundreds of thousands of square feet of multifamily, retail, and self-storage projects in the San Antonio metro area and across Central and South Texas.


Mr. Bakke also co-founded the full-service commercial construction firm Independent Contractors, Inc., a separate C-corporation for which he now serves as a director. Earlier in his career, he co-founded a $2 million green industry contracting business in San Antonio.


Mr. Bakke has a lengthy history of service to various civic and charitable organizations. While serving the Witte Museum, he chaired the Building and Planning committees and served as Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees.  A friend of the military and a longstanding member of the Texas Cavaliers, Mr. Bakke has served on the charitable organization’s board of directors and created its Wounded Warrior Military Fiesta to honor our nation’s injured service members.
