About > People
With more than 20 years of combined hospitality and construction industry experience, including FF&E purchasing, project management, and labor contracting, David Burman founded First Finish, Inc. with Lori Burman in 1999 with one mission in mind: deliver fast-track, premier general contracting, and turn-key construction renovation services to the hospitality, commercial, and government market sectors. His in-depth knowledge of the industry and commitment to overall client satisfaction remains the cornerstone of First Finish’s success.
As president, David takes a hands-on approach for all of the company’s projects, whether they are 800+ room renovations or smaller scale service contracts. He has personally overseen more than 150 multi-million dollars worth of construction projects for First Finish and has pioneered the company’s extensive recycling policy, applying it across the board to demolition debris and FF&E packaging on construction sites to the use of all post-consumer printing materials at the company’s headquarters.
Through David’s leadership, vision, and entrepreneurial spirit, First Finish has continually earned the reputation as the Mid-Atlantic region’s leading hospitality renovation service provider.
David is also a member and frequent sponsor of more than a dozen state and federal industry associations and was recognized in 2008 as “Allied Member of the Year” by the Maryland Hotel & Lodging Association.
