Bio:

Mortimer Mercer Marshall Jr was a NOMA Council member, distinguished AIA Fellow, Construction Specifications Institute Fellow, and Whitney Young Jr Award recipient. After receiving an undergraduate architecture degree from Tuskegee University, the great designer rose through the ranks of the military. Later appointed director of design on the staff of the U.S. Secretary of Defense, he guided the military’s multi-billion-dollar design and construction program from the late 1960s through the early 1980s. During his directorship, he remained committed to including small businesses and minority-owned firms in public projects. Following Marshall’s retirement from the Federal Government after 32 years of distinguished service, he founded The Marshall Group in 1982. TMG is a family-owned Reston, Virginia firm specializing in architecture, interiors, construction management and general contracting. For 35 years, Marshall lead TMG with compassion for the profession, dedication to making a difference in the built environment and commitment to providing mentoring and championing the rights of those underrepresented in the profession. He was a leader in the built community and mentored and inspired a generation of architects. Under his leadership, TMG commissions ranged from small renovations to multi-million-dollar new construction. Through the Marshall Group, he has launched a mentorship initiative to partner architects with teachers and students and foster design-related learning.
