Finneran provided the lead gift of $22.6 million that kicked off the transformation of the Pavilion, which was renamed Finneran Pavilion in his honor. A former member of the University’s Board of Trustees and a co-chair of Villanova’s “Transforming Minds and Hearts” capital campaign from 2004 to 2007, Finneran also endowed the Men’s Basketball head coaching position.

“Bill was a legendary Villanova man,” said Jay Wright, the William B.

Our family, Villanova and the world will miss a genuinely good guy.”

Finneran had a long and successful career in finance, most recently as chairman and managing director of EXOP Capital LLC, a New York-based hedge fund that he co-founded in 2005. He was also dedicated to many nonprofit organizations, including the Partnership for Inner-City Education of the Archdiocese of New York, MD Anderson Cancer Center, the Ireland-U.S. Council and Operation Smile.

A highly engaged alumnus, Finneran was awarded an honorary doctorate from Villanova in 1994. “We lost a great Villanovan,” said University President the Rev. Peter M. Donohue, OSA, PhD, ’75 CLAS. “Bill’s impact on the University, particularly Villanova Basketball, will continue to be felt by Villanovans for generations.”
