Fran Colantonio accepts award

Holliston, MA – Colantonio, Inc. has received two prestigious awards: the Business Leader of the Year by the MetroWest Chamber of Commerce (MWCC) and one of the 2014 Top Workplaces by the Worcester Business Journal (WBJ).

The MWCC named President Fran Colantonio as Business Leader of the Year at its Annual Meeting Gala and Awards Reception held in November at the Sheraton Framingham Hotel and Conference Center. The organization cited the firm’s 34% growth in revenue over the past year and its commitment to social responsibility and community involvement, particularly its state-approved apprentice training programs and hiring preference for military veterans.

The WBJ recognized Colantonio for its Education, Training & Career Development practices. The paper lauded the company’s internship program, its support of each employee’s specific training needs, and its low employee turnover rate.

“I am truly honored to be recognized like this,” Colantonio said. “These awards say a lot about our company and our culture. It makes me proud.”
