The Principals: Werner Catsman and Steve Finger
Werner Catsman was born and raised in Telluride, Colorado and began his construction career at the age of 15, installing roads and utilities in the new Mountain Village. After gaining experience with infrastructure development, Werner worked for several years as a carpenter on custom homes and condo projects in the region. He then went to work as General Manager of Scott Fly Rod Company where he was instrumental in increasing profits through production planning and lean management practices. Werner’s experience running a complex and high-end manufacturing facility, combined with a broad construction background, has given him a unique ability to apply the elements of lean production, detailed quality control, and strong leadership to all Finbro Construction’s projects. Werner personally manages all Finbro projects, negotiating subcontractor buy downs; implementing and driving the critical path; leading OAC meetings; and generally focusing on all aspects of the project.
Steve Finger is one of Telluride’s most successful developers and his experience developing high-end condo and custom home projects has given Finbro a “developer’s mentality.” With Steve’s vision, Finbro builds all projects as if we were the owner. Steve's philosophy has shaped the company and includes firm discipline on executing schedules and maintaining budgets. His eye for detail provides another level of quality control on all projects.
