Atlanta Mourns The Loss of Prominent Business Leader Maceo A. Brown

Members of the Atlanta community are mourning the loss of Maceo A. Brown, who started the largest Black-owned and operated security and alarm monitoring company in Georgia over three decades ago.

According to Rolling Out, Brown’s death was confirmed based on a written statement from his wife, with no cause of death revealed by the family.
“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.”

Based on his business acumen, the successful businessman was given numerous awards throughout his career: These awards and honors included being an Atlanta Business League Hall of Fame Inductee and his business winning the Corporation of the Year Award, receiving the 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.

Brown was also appointed to the Board of Councilors for the Carter Center and recognized in Who’s Who in Black Atlanta. He was well-respected, and many wanted to hear his words and thoughts. He was often asked to deliver motivational and inspirational messages to aspiring youth, enterprising entrepreneurs, community leaders, and church congregants.
The family has released calling hours and information on ways to pay respects.
