Ashleigh Trbovic

President, McGough Construction

I’m Ashleigh, the President of Building First Nations, a Native-American owned design and general contracting business. I have over a decade of experience working with local and federal governments for the procurement of design and construction projects. Before being asked to join the Build First Nations team, I provided business development and marketing for SDVOSB set-aside architect-engineering firms. I truly enjoyed being able to help small businesses grow, while providing much needed services to the repair of Veterans Affairs Medical Centers. My focus now is to help the Cherokee and Native-American communities build their communities up through the services my team provides. We specialize in commercial and industrial construction, in addition to residential and entertainment facilities. My goal is to help create a network of teaming partners interested in supporting our mission and cause.


Incorporating different perspectives into an industry allows for growth and innovation. These perspectives and experiences are not only needed, but belong in an industry that is literally building the world around us.
