St. John’s Realtor Craig Williams, president and CEO of Future Group Company and leader of The Home Team real estate team with Exit Realty on The Rock, was a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of The Year Awards. Ernst & Young has been selecting recipients for these awards for two decades, looking at a variety of criteria from financial performance to personal integrity and community engagement.

Williams began his career in real estate selling new home construction. After developing strong relationships with local builders and developers, he created a network of his own businesses to include land development, excavation and engineering, renovation and  residential and commercial construction. Future Group now has 15 companies and approximately 100 employees.

The companies within Future Group include Skymark Homes, the largest residential builder in the province; Baraco Atlantic, a commercial general contracting company; Contour Atlantic and Greenmark Construction, both specializing in heavy civil construction.

“I was told one time by an employee that I did not hire people, I adopted them,” says Williams. “That is something I will always carry with me and feel proud of. We run a ‘we’ show, not an ‘I’ show.”
