woman owned business—was launched with a simple, powerful
idea: to make federal procurement financing easier by combining
government finance experts with legal experts who are all motivated
to deliver solutions faster, with fewer
hassles and using simpler
paperwork than any other financial institution.
From her years of
experience in the federal finance arena, Maeve Rigler—the
founder of Securus—observed that leading
financial institutions suffered from a fundamental lack
of understanding of government contracting
principles. She saw vendors frustrated by the scarcity of solution-oriented financing
sources to help them win awards and then quickly accelerate their
revenue. She saw financial institutions making last-minute demands
that resulted in frustration, delays... or worse.
With a vision of streamlining
federal contract financing, Ms. Rigler established Securus Capital
to provide intelligent financial services to
vendors and agencies. She has assembled a team of like-minded
government finance and legal experts—described below—with over 80 years
of collective experience helping vendors accelerate over $2 billion
of revenue—who are all motivated to find common-sense
solutions to any issue.
MAEVE T. RIGLER, President, C.E.O. and Owner. An attorney who has been intimately involved for 15 years in structuring, documenting, negotiating and closing federal contract financings, Ms. Rigler’s knowledge of the federal government is extensive. Prior to founding Securus Capital, Ms. Rigler represented banks and other financial institutions, as well as technology companies doing business with the federal government.

MICHAEL B. MANKIN, Senior Consultant.
