Patoma is led by former classmates Paul Henry and Thomas Finnican. Together, they have completed or are in construction on projects with a total capitalization of over $100 million. Since the humble beginnings of their partnership, Paul and Tom have maintained a hands-on approach in all aspects of their development projects. Being fully licensed and insured as a General Contractor in NYC, Patoma undertakes much of the construction in-house to further control the details of each project. Based in Brooklyn, they have the advantage of closely monitoring their ongoing projects as well as being intimately connected to the ever-changing development market.
Paul leads the acquisition and development design processes for Patoma. Prior to co-founding the company, Paul formed Henry Development LLC to capitalize on the growing need for housing built specifically for NYC's young workforce. Drawing on personal experience, Paul focused on designing efficient share apartments for this growing demographic. Previously, Paul worked at McKinsey and Company, the global management consulting firm, where he was involved in a variety of projects in consumer products, financial services, and telecom industries.
Paul grew up in Santa Monica, CA and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Systems Engineering and a Minor in Mathematics.
Tom leads the construction and development execution for the organization. Prior to co-founding Patoma, Tom was contracted by a family office to carry out the development of several large-scale mixed-use projects. Those projects include a 47 unit gut renovation/new construction project in Brooklyn, as well as the repositioning of a 29 unit project in the Bronx. Drawn to construction at a young age, Tom benefits from the experience of a variety of roles having started out as a laborer during summers in college.
Tom grew up in Long Island, NY and graduated from the School of Arts and Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Economics and Sociology.
