Rafael Lopez, CEO

Mr. Lopez has been running Maxximus, a successful U.S. Government contracting firm since 2000.  After working during and after college for a highly respected firm, he decided to develop a new firm that would apply his intense work ethic, sense of standards and responsibility, and his commitment to protecting people in the work place to the U.S. Government workplace.  He understood that one key factor for the success of the company would be to earn the trust of the U.S. Government and its employees by committing to what he could provide, by executing the work exceptionally well, and by taking the function of protection seriously.  He has earned a stellar reputation in the industry and has maintained a  facility clearance based on this corporate culture of earned trust.
