Apex Developers is comprised of 2 Cheshire-based cousins with extensive building experience.

Phil Bowman

Born and raised in Cheshire, CT and began his building career at the young age of 14, while working every summer alongside his father Paul Bowman. He graduated from Colgate University in 2002 and moved to Boston where he worked with Berry Construction as a Project Manager for large-scale healthcare, life science, and education building projects.

After five years in Boston, Phil made the decision to move back to Connecticut to again work alongside his father. In 2008, he started his own land development company, Pinnacle Land Development.

Phil has an extensive background and experience in the building industry. He specializes in custom residential homes, commercial development, full building renovation and resale throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts. He believes in the importance of evolving his building practices to and for the needs of his customers and the environment. He is adamant about providing the highest level of service to ensure each customer’s comfort throughout all phases of construction and finished product.

Phil Bowman is a Licensed Builder & Home Improvement Contractor in Connecticut and Massachusetts, a member of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), he is a NAHB certified Green Professional, and a licensed REALTOR.

Steve Bowman

After graduating from Occidental College in 2000, Steve Bowman decided to return to Connecticut and work for the plumbing and heating business his grandfather started over 50 years ago. As a plumber, he worked closely with many of Cheshire’s finest builders. By working with these companies on large projects and new developments, Steve became very interested in learning more about the home building business.

In 2005, while still working as a plumber, he successfully built his first home in Glastonbury. Finally, in 2009, Steve made the decision to fully commit to building and remodeling homes, leaving the family plumbing and heating company and starting his own, Cornerstone Developers. As a second generation builder, and with his personal experience as a plumbing subcontractor, he has developed the collaborative, relationship building skills necessary to effectively work with the numerous subcontractors. Steve works with his team to ensure that the projects run smoothly and in a timely manner.
