First PMC: 1991
As CEO of Perini Corporation from 1972 to 2000, after succeeding
his father, David Perini continued on the transformation of
the modest masonry and earthmoving company founded by his
Italian immigrant grandfather in 1894 into one of the largest
and most diversified general contractors in the United States.
Along with his wife Eileen, Perini also founded the pediatric
cancer survivor clinic at the Dana Farber Institute, memory
of their son Dave Jr., who succumbed to cancer in 1990. Perini's
father helped found the Jimmy Fund when the family owned the
Boston Braves, and then entrusted the Red Sox with the fledgling
charity when the Braves moved to Milwaukee in 1952. Now commissioner
of the agency that oversees all the Commonwealth sponsored
vertical building construction in Massachusetts, Perini believes
there is no substitute for quality work, or for a good name,
"It takes a long time to build a building, " he intones. "And
a very short time to tear down a reputation."
"Honesty in business is the key."
