Bob Savageau – Bismarck, ND

Bob’s career has spanned over 60 years of entrepreneurial endeavors, which include hotel and motel management and food and beverage ownership. Bob switched careers in 1983 and has been in real estate sales and development until his semi-retirement in 2023. His first venture was the purchase of a residential investment property in 1984, which lit the fire for the future. Over the next few years, he purchased several smaller rental properties with the idea of moving into the area of commercial investments. A partnership was formed with several local investors, and they built their first property – a three-story office complex. One of the partners was on the Board of Directors for BSC, and he helped secure them as their initial tenants. Over time, they have owned and managed properties ranging from 10,000sq. ft. office buildings to 100,000sq. ft. commercial facilities. The range of tenants includes the State of North Dakota, numerous different agencies, Sanford Health, Marsh McLennan, Edward Jones, Advanced Physical Therapy, Western Synod of Lutheran Church, and many more.

Bob’s involvement with Hope Manor began in 2020 because of his son’s addiction. He watched the involvement of the people associated with Hope Manor and their willingness to help his son. This has made him eternally grateful for the work that we do. When asked, he didn’t hesitate to serve on the board; he would do (and does) anything possible to help serve the mission of Hope Manor.
