Ann McNeill, owner and president of one of South Florida’s female-owned construction companies, was honored as one of 10 outstanding women in transportation-construction recently at an event in the nation’s capital.
The Conference of Minority Transportation Officials sixth annual “Celebrating Women Who Move the Nation” awards was held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center on March 15.
Honorees for the conference’s leading women in transportation awards are selected for their achievements and commitment to the advancement of women, diversity, and inclusion in transportation and construction. COMTO has honored more than 60 women with this award to date.
“As someone with over 40 years of experience in the Florida construction industry, I was one of the first female general contractors in the state,” said McNeill. “Even more important today, I am working to advance the rights of black girls and women working in the construction industry, and I am providing consulting services to pass on my construction knowledge. I thank COMTO for this prestigious recognition,” she said.
Construction firms serve the contractors, aggregate producers, engineers, suppliers and service providers who design, build, and maintain America’s transportation network.
McNeill is one of the first female general contractors in the state of Florida. She is owner and president of MCO Construction and Services, Inc., MCO Consulting, Inc., and Constructively Speaking, Inc. She is also the founder of the National Association of Black Women in Construction. McNeill received her Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting from Florida Memorial University, and her Master’s in Finance from Barry University.
