(Atlanta, Ga) – Family, friends and colleagues are saddened by the passing of Southwest Atlanta Entrepreneur Maceo A. Brown who 33 years ago started the largest African American owned and operated security and alarm monitoring company in Georgia. Being remembered by many for his leadership, business acumen and philanthropy, his legacy as an industry leader will continue on.
Throughout his lifetime, Maceo received numerous awards to include: Atlanta Business League Hall of Fame Inductee and Corporation of the Year Award, Concerned Black Clergy of Atlanta Business of the Year Award, Atlanta Tribune’s Business Achievement Award, the Herndon Foundation’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and Invest Atlanta’s Southside Champion Award. Maceo was also appointed to the Board of Councilors for the Carter Center and recognized in Who’s Who in Black Atlanta. Maceo was often sought to deliver motivational and inspirational messages to aspiring youth, enterprising entrepreneurs, community leaders and church congregants.
Aside from being a successful entrepreneur, he was the Founder of MACEO’S Kids (Mentoring Aspiring CEO’s), a non-profit organization created to pair African American youth with mentors in an effort to foster an entrepreneurial spirit.
“Thank you for your many words of encouragement, prayers, condolences, and expressions of love shown for my husband,” expressed Mrs. Brown. “I am grateful that God gave me the opportunity to share 34 years of his life.”
