WATCH: John Cannistraro Honored with Labor Guild’s 2015 Cushing-Gavin Award

Doing good - both at work and in the community - is an important value to the Cannistraro family.  Earlier this month, company president John Cannistraro, Jr. was honored with the 2015 Cushing-Gavin Award.  The Massachusetts Building Trades, the Labor Guild Archdiocese and their partners selected Cannistraro as the management awardee in honor of his numerous contributions to the building industry as well as his ongoing support for community and charitable efforts including work with the Artists for Humanity, the St. Boniface Haiti Foundation and Partners in Health.

John was joined by members of his family and company colleagues at an awards banquet on December 4th, where he addressed the audience and conveyed his gratitude for the prestigious honor.  In his speech, which you can watch below, John emphasized the importance of collaboration and continuous improvement.  "To be here a hundred years from now, celebrating labor and management," he explained, "we need to be willing to change.  Doing things the way we always did them is not the way to succeed in the future; as an industry, and as contractors, we need to be taking the long-term view."  Congratulations, John!
