MMC_faces ad crop_040716H. Montgomery Martin was born in Memphis in 1955. After graduating from Memphis University School, he attended Auburn University from 1973-1978, where he earned a degree in Building Science before moving back to Memphis in 1978 to work for Clark and Clark, which was the predecessor to MCDR. He worked as an estimator and project manager eventually rising within the company to Principal and Vice-President. In 1995, he left MCDR to form Montgomery Martin Contractors, LLC (MMC). It had always been his vision to create a service oriented, client-focused company that could provide high quality construction services for a competitive cost. 

Since 1995, MMC has earned a reputation as a leader in the construction community with a majority of work attained from references and repeat client business. MMC currently employs over 140 employees and has been named as one of the Mid-South’s top three construction firms in total construction volume by the Memphis Business Journal. 

As President and CEO, Montgomery coordinates and directs all aspects of the company’s objectives and policies. He works with the executive team to coordinate the company’s operations, finances, business development, and client relations. Montgomery also assists project owners and architects in early-stage financial feasibility studies and defining project objectives.

Over the years Montgomery and his team have received numerous awards and have been involved with many of the city’s biggest projects including AutoZone Park. Using his 37 years of experience of building construction management, Montgomery has succeeded in turning MMC into one of Memphis’ premier construction companies.
