Smyth, Margaret M.
Margaret Smyth is a second generation Irish American, but because her Irish-born grandparents lived with her when she was growing up, she considers herself first generation.
Vice president and controller at United Technologies Corporation, Smyth is responsible for many of the global finance functions for the $55 billion, Dow 30 diversified company.
A graduate of Fordham University and New York University, Smyth is married to Berney, a first generation Irish American, and they have a house in Fairymount, Co. Roscommon.
An Irish citizen, Smyth believes her heritage has shaped her.
“My Irish heritage has given me a good sense of humor and an even better sense of humility, which helps me maintain perspective in both my personal and professional life,” says Smyth, who also serves as a director for Irish humanitarian agency Concern Worldwide USA, and on the board of directors of Mutual of America Investment Corporation.
The Smyths have two sons and resides in Hartford, Connecticut.
