Megan began her career in the construction industry shortly after completing her college education and has been in construction for nearly fifteen years. She developed a fascination for construction at a young age observing and working alongside her father, who was also in the construction industry.
Megan’s first industry opportunity was with The Conti Group working in their New York City office as an administrative assistant to the Vice President of Operations and lent support to all field operations. During her tenure at Conti, Megan was fortunate to have had two seasoned professionals as mentors allowing her to broaden her knowledge, specifically in estimating, project management, and business development. This gained knowledge led to her becoming the Business Development Manager for the New York City construction market and the New Jersey solar market.
The invaluable experience Megan had garnered allowed her to expand her career in the industry, and she became the MWDBE liaison at Schiavone Construction. At Schiavone, she was responsible for the oversite of the MWDBE department to ensure all projects were compliant with federal, state, and local laws pertaining to minority participation.
Today Megan is Director of Marketing for Ferreira Construction and its affiliated companies. In her position, she understands the importance of branding and continually explores advertising opportunities, strategies, and critical marketing opportunities to allow Ferreira and its affiliates to build its customer base constantly. Additionally, she is responsible for supporting and driving sales growth in the utility market sector throughout the East Coast, including targeting and penetrating accounts, creating proposals, managing an opportunity pipeline, conducting training, and handling numerous other business development and sales-related activities. She also provides guidance on matters of MWDBE compliance.
She is a member of Professional Women in Construction, serves as Vice President for the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities Supplier Diversity Development Council, and is Co-Chair of the By-laws and Supplier Development committees. She also serves as a committee member of the M/W/DBE and Law & Legislative Committees for the General Contractors Association of New York.
Megan enjoys volunteering and works with local homeless organizations and food banks to provide food, clothing, and gifts to those in need.
