Marvin Smith, President / Owner Bogar Construction

I have been in business for myself for 30 years as an investment property owner, rehab specialist and licensed real estate agent. Prior to starting Bogar Construction in 2008, I worked for The Network for Better Futures, a non-profit program for formerly incarcerated young men. The program provided them with housing, life skill and job development training to adequately prepare them for transition into mainstream society. My role with the company was to source and secure contracts with business partners for the job development aspect of the program. The public and private connections I made in this role led me to create a business that would allow me to provide quality construction services to my own customers and also be a mentor and job creator for young minority men and women interested in the construction trade as a career. In this mission, I actively partner with a number of non-profit workforce development programs.

 

I became President of the Association of Minority Contractors (NAMC – Upper Midwest) in 2021 to focus on creating opportunities and cultivating partnerships for minority contractors. In addition, I advocate for their continued growth and education in the field of construction.
