Dermot Ryan

Company: MGAC

Position: Managing Director


As the Managing Director of Hospitality at MGAC with overall responsibility for the success of our client’s ground-up and renovation hotel projects. Over the past 30 years, I have successfully delivered hotel projects - both in-house and as a trusted third-party partner - across North and South America, Caribbean, and Europe.

My background in project and construction management, quantity surveying and commercial development, I bring a critical and discerning perspective to guide the design and implementation of complex hotel projects. I work closely alongside my clients and team members to define and develop achievable goals, while balancing the detailed and big-picture requirements that produce well-planned and profitable assets.

Currently, I oversee a team of project managers that, over the last 5 years, has helped deliver over 80 hospitality projects across 28 states for clients including Starwood Capital, Garrison Investment Group, Sandals Resorts International, Fortress Investment Group, and Marriott. Together, we are working hard to continue developing best practices that ensure our projects are delivered with quality consistent with our client’s expectations and MGAC’s standard of excellence.
