The Perrone Construction Management Team

Richard Perrone
Richard PerroneFounder and CEO
Richard Perrone has always been fascinated by the process of building. A Sarasota resident for over four decades, Rich started his career building homes on oceanfront properties in Vero beach. He relocated to Sarasota in 1978 and founded Perrone Construction in 1980. Often Richard is described by his work ethic, his integrity and the remarkable homes he has built, however, his true passion is in the process of discovery itself.

Those who know him well know he perceives a project in his mind far differently than any other builder, creating for himself a deep understanding of not just function, but of design, history and architecture. Paying homage to the authenticity of design on each of his projects, Rich will go through great lengths to achieve his distinct level of accuracy as he carefully studies each design before him.

On many occasions he has traveled the globe documenting architectural design and the use of building materials in their native applications. Always thinking several steps ahead, such interpretation of plans and invaluable expertise can only be achieved through a lifetime of construction.

Ricky Perrone
Ricky PerronePresident
Ricky began working summer days on Perrone construction sites at the age of thirteen. Coming from a bloodline of builders, preceded by both his father and grandfather, he fell in love with the craft. Working his way up through the ranks while earning his business management degree from USF, Ricky had a very unique opportunity to learn every trade from the ground up, over time becoming one of the most knowledgeable builders in our area as he worked his way through the ranks into management.

Creative by nature, Ricky is truly an artistic mind that views the world differently, challenging the norm and provoking new ideas with every project he touches. His out-of-the-box thinking sheds new light on even the smallest architectural details.

Ricky, a Sarasota native, shares his deep knowledge of Sarasota’s waterfront neighborhoods and current market as a licensed Realtor to help clients find the property that perfectly suits their needs.

Ricky not only brings beauty to his surrounding community through his trade, but also through his compassion. He has been a big brother for over ten years with Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Suncoast and is a board member of the Humane Society of Sarasota.
