MeetConstruction Firm CEO Marjorie Perry

This week on The Urban Business Roundtable, in time for Women’s History Month, UBR contributor Samantha Pass speaks with women’s history maker Marjorie Perry, founder and Chief Creative Officer of MZM Construction & Management Co., based in Newark, N.J. Perry has earned numerous awards and recognition for her entrepreneurial achievements, including being named one of the Top 25 Entrepreneurs in New Jersey and one of New Jersey’s Top 50 Women in Business by the business publication NJBIZ. She has also recently been selected by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie to be a member of the New Jersey Economic Development Authority.

Perry built a career working for such corporations as 3M, Johnson & Johnson and United Airlines, before launching her own consulting firm focused on helping entrepreneurs succeed in the marketplace. Impressed by her insight and vision, MZM Construction, which was one of her clients at the time, asked her to join the business as a partner. Eventually Perry became the sole principal and CEO of the company. Under Perry’s guidance, MZM Construction has enjoyed 19 years of profitable performance, including work on such projects as the New Jersey Performing Arts Center and Meadowlands Giants & Jets Sports Arena. Perry joins the Roundtable to share her journey to the top of a multimillion-dollar construction business.
