John Loud
Loud Security

John Loud, originally hailing from Boston, has embraced the spirit of Southern
hospitality in all aspects of his personal and professional life. John has worn many hats
in his career: hockey player, comedy club manager, Delta flight attendant, political
campaign worker, community volunteer and entrepreneur.
John’s primary focus since 1995 has been the establishment and growth of LOUD
Security. From its humble beginnings in the basement of the Loud home, LOUD
Security now employs over 60 people and services 9,000 customers. Most recently,
John’s outstanding leadership resulted in the Kennesaw Citizen of the Year Award and
the Mack Henderson Public Service Award for his commitment and dedication to the
quality of life for the citizens of Cobb County.
Not only has John used his talent of integrating today’s technology with old fashioned
service to his current business, he has lent his talents to professional and community
organizations across the state of Georgia. From President of the Kennesaw Business
Association, President of the Georgia Electronic Life Safety and Security Association,
cooperating with local police departments to promote Georgia legislation that would
increase life safety to his customers; John has been, and continues to be, an avid
champion for the security industry.
