Meet the Owners
Management Team in Central Maryland, Maryland
Hugh McLaurin fulfilled a longstanding desire to own and operate a business by becoming one of the first Securis franchisees. He sees a Securis franchise as an excellent opportunity to apply his leadership, management and customer service skills toward personal interests in recycling, cybersecurity and community involvement.
Mr. McLaurin is excited about operating his Securis franchise in Central Maryland, including Howard, Montgomery, Carroll, Frederick and Washington Counties. This is very familiar territory for him, having grown up in Montgomery County, living for 26 years in Carroll County, and currently living in Howard County. Strong ties to many people, communities, institutions and businesses in all five counties make him eager to serve a broad spectrum of customers across this territory.
Before joining Securis, Mr. McLaurin had a 35-year career in the federal government, including 11 years in the government’s Senior Executive Service. His public sector experience included leading people, organizations, programs, and public/private ventures in defense, aviation, consumer product safety and high performance computing. Mr. McLaurin holds a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland, both in electrical engineering.
Mr. McLaurin has fulfilled his passion for community and public service by volunteering at the local hospital, writing a weekly newspaper column, serving on the county Ethics Commission, and running for public office. As a business owner he is now involved in numerous Chambers of Commerce and Technology Councils, and exploring new ways to get involved in local communities across Central Maryland.
Mr. McLaurin lives in Ellicott City, Maryland with his wife Janet and children that come and go. He enjoys many activities that include flying, motorcycling, camping, bicycling and hiking.
