More Information

Fontaine Bros. is constructing the largest public project in Worcester’s history, the $200-million South High Community School. That might never have happened if David hadn’t recognized the large potential of the Worcester market for the Springfield-based company and opened an office off Shrewsbury Street in 2016.

In his time as an executive of the four-generation company, David has seen its revenues grow from $65 million in 2010 to more than $250 million. The company has more $400 million of work underway in Central Massachusetts right now and typically utilizes local subcontractors, tradespeople, unions and suppliers on those projects. David’s projects have included the New Contemplative Center for the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, the expansion of the historic Shrewsbury Public Library, and the new Nelson Place Elementary School in Worcester. He and his wife, Sarah, focus their community giving-back efforts on the Nativity School in Worcester and do an annual toy drive for Worcester Public Schools.

What makes Central Mass. unique? The people and how they care about the community! I love that while Worcester is the second biggest city in New England, it still feels like a small town where everyone knows and supports one another.

He’s a bit of a thrill seeker: I have done the world’s largest bungee jump (in Queenstown, New Zealand), skydiving, and scuba diving, and I also fly airplanes.
