Finley Perry is the founder F. H. Perry, Builder, Inc., a Hopkinton, Massachusetts custom building, remodeling, restoration, and residential services company he created in 1975.
The firm—now owned by his daughter, Allison Lantosca, and a second partner—provides a broad range of design, construction, management, and maintenance services to discriminating residential clients throughout Greater Boston.
Finley has been active both locally and nationally in his industry, serving as president of the Builders Association of Greater Boston, president of the Home Builders Association of Massachusetts, and member of the Executive Board of the National Association of Home Builders. He has also been active with the Boston Society of Architects as a past member of the Editorial Board of Architecture Boston magazine. He has served as trustee of Boston's Museum of Science and the Walnut Hill School in Natick. Finley is currently an overseer for the North Bennet Street School.
Finley has served his home town of Hopkinton on a variety of boards and committees, most recently chairing a study committee that played an instrumental role in teeing up the town's on-going planning engagement with the developer of 750 acres of land formerly owned by Weston Nurseries.
Finley holds a BA in political science from Stanford University. His working career began on Beacon Hill where, before entering the construction business, he served on the staff of Governor Francis Sargent from 1969 to 1973. He retains a strong interest in government and public policy.
Travel and ocean sailing are current avocations. He and his wife, Patricia, have lived in a 209-year-old pristine Georgian colonial in Hopkinton for over forty years. They have two married daughters and five grandchildren.
