Learn What We Do

We support federal agencies, directly or through teaming partners, by being their island of calm when the seas get stormy.

SV Mac Pack Communication and Outreach

We bring a Silicon Valley approach to Washington DC projects– an agile, iterative approach to communications while still adhering to policies and regulations unique to the federal government customer. Our team includes a variety of communications and outreach specialists and experts passionate about helping SV Mac Pack clients successfully achieve their objectives.



Working closely with our clients, we coordinate strategic social media plans, develop original content for websites, FAQs, podcasts, blog posts, video-blogs, and printed materials for both internal and external audiences. We design customized multimedia training, workshops, conferences, webinars and seminars to ensure streamlined information for all stakeholders. We also manage the breadth of production logistics, implementation, technical writing and technical and administrative support.

Veteran-owned and HUBZone-certified *See our DSBS profile for details



In 2018, SV Mac Pack was the project team that created the HUBZone Chamber of Commerce. We developed and maintain a series of daily conference calls, podcasts, blogs and panel webinars to enable small businesses to hear directly from federal agency and large prime experts.

In just six months, we engaged an active membership of over 1,000 people, small businesses and government contracting professionals from Guam to the U.S. Virgin Islands and every state in-between.

Maximizing virtual tools and social media, SV Mac Pack helped deliver a common message and set of program activities that rapidly increased adoption of the HUBZone Chamber, as well as standardize efforts across the community.

The HUBZone Chamber can be a catalyst to fuel economic growth in historically under-utilized business communities coast to coast.

Neil McDonnell, President 

Neil McDonnell is a technology services entrepreneur with 25+ years of professional experience. Although Neil lives near Washington DC, he created SV Mac Pack in Duncan, Oklahoma where his niece lives. Neil believes passionately that it is better to help rejuvenate her rural community … than watch her seek employment and economic security far from home.

Motivational speaker, media expert, trainer and vocal advocate for the potential of American small businesses, Neil's passion is drawn from his personal experience serving in the US Army, from providing contracting services to various government agencies, and from the many successful and failed companies he has founded since his youth.

Neil is the youngest of ten children, a training ground for competition, determination, optimism and tenacity.

SV Mac Pack, Inc. (aka 'Sailing Vessel McDonnell Pack) is a daily reminder to owner Neil McDonnell that by bringing tremendous value to his clients, he can afford to spend more quality time on his boat with his family.

A rising tide lifts all boats!
