Severna Park resident Matt Pugh (left) – a partner at Pugh & Tiller PR – was joined by Maryland Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford and others during an economic development trade mission to the United Arab Emirates and Israel from January 24 to February 2.
During the trip, they met with Israeli cybersecurity companies interested in doing business in Maryland. Pugh was invited on this trip because of his extensive background working with technology companies, particularly cybersecurity, as well as his years of experience working with foreign-based companies looking to do business in the United States.
“It’s an honor to be on the lieutenant governor’s trade mission team to Israel,” Pugh said. “This was a great opportunity to promote Maryland’s vibrant cybersecurity scene abroad, as well as provide both Israeli start-up and tech companies with insight into how we can help raise their brand awareness in the U.S.”
