01 Our Team

Neil Smith

Vice President

“No day is the same - that’s what I love most about working in the building and construction industry.”

I’m a Bethesda, MD native with more than 30 years of professional experience in cost estimating and management. Over the years, I’ve successfully led construction cost estimating efforts for projects in the United States, as well as 67 countries in Canada, Europe, the Caribbean, Latin America, Africa, and Asia. I apply my experience in various hospitality markets toward conceptual, feasibility, and construction estimates; due diligence; conversion and chain acquisition estimates; FF&E estimates; identifying potential project cost drivers and risks; and change order analysis and negotiation.

At MGAC we execute and deliver. We work hard to understand our clients, their goals and needs, and ultimately what success looks like for them. I enjoy getting things done not just talking endlessly about them. Outside the office, you’ll find me hiking, camping, or watching soccer.
