John Finch

Chief-Executive Officer, Owner


Since 1991, John Finch has served as the Co-Founder and Co-Owner of PBG Builders, Inc.  As its Chief-Executive Officer, he is a strong contributor to the company’s success through his knowledge and expertise of the construction industry.  John brings a rather unique perspective to any client’s project through his public service and perspective of how projects and development ought to fit in a community and our society.

As the former Mayor of Goodlettsville appreciates the vital importance of smart growth, community values, and appropriateness of design.   As a commercial builder for over 45 years, he knows the importance of having a correct program for any project, and is skilled in budgeting, value engineering, high performance teams, and transparency & clear communications that lead to the success of any project.  Having sat on both sides of the project initiative, he truly recognizes and respects his clients’ perspective.  In fact, many clients value John’s expertise as an Owner’s Representative in assisting them to navigate through the construction process with confidence.

Because of John’s extensive experience in the construction industry, both corporate and non-profit entities have requested him to serve as an expert witness, providing arbitration and litigation support.  Because of his well-respected reputation, and that of PBG Builders, Inc., he is able to provide litigation support through analysis of facts and documents, field inspections, destructive testing, cost estimates, delay claims analysis and reporting, depositions and court testimony.
