Founder and Executive Chairman of the Board Malcolm G. McLaren, PE is an engineering pioneer. Since founding the firm in his basement in 1977, his entrepreneurial spirit quickly propelled McLaren Engineering Group to the forefront of the AEC industry.
In the early days, Mal was a driving force behind the concept of the “engineer-as-diver” profession, combining his passion for recreational diving with his skills as a professional engineer to offer underwater investigative services. Since then, his out-of-the-box thinking, passion for innovation, and technical excellence quickly launched an ever-growing engineering empire.
“I started McLaren Engineering Group when I was 25 years old with a slide rule in one hand and a shovel in the other. Four decades later, I’m proud to say that the firm has developed beyond my expectations and we continue that trajectory of growth by adding more iconic projects to our portfolio and strategically expanding our service line offerings with some of the top talent in the industry. The entrepreneurial basis for our success is the ability to recognize opportunities, and act on them.”– Malcolm McLaren, PE
