Paul Stevens

Founder, Senior Architect

Paul has been with SMRT for most of his 50-plus years in the business, yet the firm has always been in his blood.

Long before he began his studies at the University of Pennsylvania — long before he was even born — Paul’s great grandfather, John Calvin Stevens, founded the company.

Paul has built on his great grandfather’s vision and success, making SMRT the major force that it is in the Northeast today.

Paul loves spending time on the waterfront and islands of Casco Bay with his wife and sons. An avid sailor and runner, Paul long ago set a goal of winning his age group at the Miami half marathon; he is still trying.

He recently stepped down as principal and marketing director, but continues to be active in projects, marketing and the Portland community.
