Ken Finley, Jr., Owner

Thank you for your interest in Finley Contracting, Inc. Since the age of eight years old, I’ve spent my life learning and perfecting my craft with the guidance of my father Ken Finley, Sr., a respected craftsman with an outstanding reputation for quality, custom construction throughout the Bay Area. I started as a laborer and worked my way through the ranks to becoming his lead project manager.

The torch has now been passed, and I am proud to carry on the family tradition of building some of the finest custom homes, wineries and other commercial structures throughout Sonoma County and the Bay Area.

Besides being a master craftsman, I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree with Distinction in Business Management from Sonoma State University.
