Family Business Atlantic - The Peter Wilson Dinner

November 18

Join us this year for this year’s 25th Peter Wilson Dinner featuring the Cresco family. We will be celebrating our silver anniversary in high style on November 18 – 5:00 pm at the Halifax Convention Centre.

For over 30 years, the owners of Cresco, first-generation Canadians Hossein Mousavi and Taleb Abidali, and their team have built award-winning homes and communities across Halifax. The magic of this successful family-owned company is in its collaboration with customers, partners and a loyal network of builders and trades. Cresco is known for its relentless focus on quality and artistry in building homes and developing communities such as The Ravines of Bedford South and The Parks of West Bedford.

Whether building single-family homes, multi-unit residential or commercial properties, or working through master-planned developments, Cresco has a long-term perspective on land acquisition, partnerships, community building and the innovative use of design and building principles.

With over fifty industry and community awards and progressive, long-term thinking, Cresco is deeply committed to giving back, evidenced by its active participation and support of organizations such as the Cobequid Health Centre Foundation, Dalhousie Medical Research Foundation, Dartmouth General Hospital Foundation, Halifax YMCA, Nova Scotia Home Builders’ Association, Urban Development Institute, Halifax Partnership, Halifax Chamber of Commerce, and Family Business Atlantic. Cresco has also built lottery homes for multiple charities over the past two decades.

The Cresco family is an ardent supporter of FBA and is a past national Family Enterprise of the Year Award winner. Amanée Mousavi, Hossein’s daughter, served as FBA President from 2019 – 2021 and is an active peer group member along with Farhang Fotovat, Taleb’s son-in-law. We are truly honoured to share their family business story with you at our 25th anniversary dinner!
