Maurie Smith

Vice President, Philadelphia Office

Maurie leverages her background in urban planning and real estate development to translate client ideas to reality.

As a Vice President at U3, Maurie works on a range of projects from large-scale strategic planning, to real estate development, to campus operations.  She prides herself in working hand-in-hand with clients on particularly complex projects to overcome internal and external barriers to implementation.  In her time at U3, Maurie performed major roles at Goucher College as the Interim Vice President for Campus Operations, at Mills College leading a campus-wide space analysis and development study, and at Drexel University as part of the Facilities and Real Estate Management team/department.  In addition to her core role at U3, Maurie also conducts executive searches for clients, recruiting for key leadership roles during periods of change and growth.

Maurie’s work is informed by her time at Cooper’s Ferry Partnership in Camden, NJ and the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC) where she worked on community engagement, neighborhood and industrial-district planning, park renovations, and road reconstruction projects.

Maurie has a BA in Economics from the College of William and Mary, and a Master of City Planning from the University of Pennsylvania. During her time at Penn, she received the Paul Davidoff Award for outstanding work in areas of contemporary social concern.
