Francis Colantonio, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Fran has grown the company from a solid carpentry business to an award-winning, $50 million general contractor.  He attributes his success to doing high quality work, managing his growth with smart decisions, and treating his clients and employees the way he wants to be treated.  "Industry buzzwords and trends come and go,” Fran says.  “For the past 38 years, my buzzwords have been ‘honesty’, ‘trust’, and ‘integrity’.  They are the foundation of every one of our projects.  We built a family like culture around them, a culture that inspires clients and subcontractors to want to work with us again and again.”

Fran, creative by nature, thrives on finding new ways to solve typical problems, like building a pedestrian bridge inside Framingham State University’s busy campus center to keep the building functional during construction of the new entrance.  His passions for building muscle cars and hot rods, boating and tuna fishing (he recently earned his Coast Guard Captain’s License) keep him busy during off hours.  Fran is active in the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce and recently served on the Town Administrator Search Committee for the Town of Holliston, where he and his family have lived for 30 years.
