Francis Colantonio, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer

Fran has grown the company from a solid carpentry business to a $75 million construction management and general contracting firm.  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 40 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 is passionate about promoting careers in the construction industry.  He spearheaded the production of the MCAP Guide to Construction Careers (http://www.colantonioinc.com/download-complete-guide/) for high school students, parents and educators and has been a dedicated contributor to developing and executing the AGC MA's workforce development initiatives.
