Let’s work together to drive efficiency and impact for your project. We regularly find ways to give back to region, both as a firm and by helping with community work with our clients.

Our Mission

Mayson-Dixon was born from a calling to improve communities wherever we can. As we have expanded from Baltimore into the region, we never have lost focus on helping our clients and neighbors achieve their collective goals.

Williams Family Heritage

Connecting people through meaningful work and relationships is in our blood. Jayson’s great grandfather was a small-business owner, famed bill-ringer, deacon at his church, and a fighter for racial integration for more minority businesses and career opportunities for people of color in Baltimore’s Lexington Market.  Mr. Carpenter taught his family that when doors are open for you in life you don’t close them behind you.

Newcomer Family Heritage

Matt’s grandfather and great-grandfather founded a construction and supply company in the 1950’s in Carroll County, MD – which historical foundation that influenced the creation of the Mayson-Dixon construction division. Their work in the community building their church, friends homes and even Matt’s grandfather’s house has inspired us to continue this work.

Our Vision

In order to be the best community partner possible, we follow a guiding principle: Listen first, act second. Our clients and partners currently look to us as a guiding force that diagnoses problems and identifies opportunities before prescribing solutions. We want this to be the case across the board in all projects we engage in.


We regularly find ways to give back to the region, both as a firm and by inspiring altruism in our clients.

Working  as an African American and LGBTQ-owned firm in our offices two jurisdictions with the highest percentage of black residents in Maryland gives us a cultural perspective and desire to create opportunity for others that companies do not have. This compels us to emphasize the importance of racial and gender equity in all areas of life, by being great corporate citizens and giving back to communities we are engaged in. We regularly find ways to give back to the region, both as a firm and by inspiring altruism and equity conversations and opportunities from our clients and partners. This is the way.
