Greta Perry

Vice President
MGAC

With over 30 years of experience in the construction industry, Greta Perry possesses a depth of expertise and knowledge in construction and project management. Greta has worked for several of the Washington, DC region’s most prominent construction and development companies, where she built an impressive portfolio of landmark projects, including the award-winning International Spy Museum and the renovation of the historic Woodies building. Greta has also served as Program Manager for the firm’s largest government client, directed a major retail client’s national roll-out program, oversaw the Glenstone Contemporary Art Museum, and is currently leading American Geophysical Union’s innovative headquarters renovation – which plans to be the first Net Zero, LEED Platinum, and Living Building Challenge certified building in the District.

Greta began her career in construction in the mid-1980s because she loved the industry – specifically, the challenges and learning opportunities each new project brings. She’s channeled that passion for continous improvement into some of DC’s most ground-breaking projects, and passes it on to the next generation of women in commercial real estate through her engagement with and leadership of organizations such as CREW DC and Jubilee Support Alliance. Greta has spoken on project management, women in construction, and Net Zero development for organizations such as CREW DC, Society for Marketing Professional Services, and The Catholic University of America.

True to MGAC’s Fundamentals, Greta strives to bring honesty, dedication, and creative problem solving to each of her clients, and gains inspiration from colleagues who remind her that 90% of success in life is having a positive attitude. Greta resides in Chevy Chase, MD, and when she’s not out on a project site, she’s enjoying the Finger Lakes in Upstate New York with her family.
