Detroit, Michigan, September 1, 2021 – Raffaele Mautone, Founder and CEO of Judy (formerly AaDya Security), headquartered in Detroit, was recently named to the National Small Business Association (NSBA) Leadership Council. NSBA is the nation’s oldest small-business advocacy organization, and operates on a staunchly nonpartisan basis. Mautone, a recognized leader in the small-business community, joins the NSBA Leadership Council alongside other small-business advocates from across the country as they work to promote the interests of small business to policymakers in Washington, D.C.

“As a small-business owner, I see daily the importance of being involved and active when it comes to laws and regulation,” stated Mautone. “Joining NSBA’s Leadership Council will enable me to take our collective small-business message to the people that need to hear it most: Congress.”

Mautone’s strategic thinking and effective leadership have been instrumental and paramount in his career as an IT, sales and operations professional. In March of 2019, Raffaele’s extensive experience in the IT and security industries inspired him to launch AaDya Security with a mission to provide smart, simple, effective and affordable cybersecurity solutions for the small and medium business customer.

He joined the NSBA Leadership Council as part of his efforts to tackle the many critical issues facing small business, including tax reform, regulatory restraint, health care costs and how the Affordable Care Act will impact small business. The NSBA Leadership Council is focused on providing valuable networking between small-business advocates from across the country while ensuring small business a seat at the table as Congress and regulators take up key small-business proposals.

“I am proud to have Raffaele Mautone as part of our Leadership Council,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “He came to us highly recommended and I look forward to our coordinated efforts for years to come.”
