Fran hired George in 1988 as a high school student intern.  He worked during every school break until 1994, when he received his Civil Engineering degree from Worcester Polytech.  After a five-year stint at Kiewit, he married his high school sweetheart and returned to his roots at Colantonio.  George estimated and managed projects for a few years and now oversees all estimating, project management, field supervision and contract negotiations as President of the company.

“The most rewarding part of my job is the interaction with Colantonio personnel and seeing the professional growth we’ve all had in our tenure here,” George says.  “I also get a lot personal satisfaction at the end of a project when the client is moved in and happy, and ultimately all parties see it as a success.”  His go-to vacation place with his wife and three children is Martha’s Vineyard, but he heads to the lakes of Maine with his fishing buddies every year, too.
