Montgomery College Student Success Stories

Bright Ideas
Insights, Spring ’05

Roger Lusby“I always made sure I had a good team of CPAs and lawyers on my side, and I only looked for sizeable deals that required minimal investment.”

Roger Lusby recently celebrated a 50th anniversary as an MC Junior College alum (class of 1955). Self-employed since January 1958 to the present, Lusby has been involved in insurance, real estate, construction, and mortgaging. “For my first 15 years in Silver Spring, the name ‘Montgomery’ helped me in business: I went to Montgomery College; and my partners and I traded as Montgomery Realty, Montgomery Insurance, and Montgomery S&L.” His office building in Silver Spring— the Montgomery Building—has won design awards. Since moving to Florida in 1973, Lusby’s “southern” ventures include an airpark project in East Naples, Fla.; commodities: coal in Kentucky and timber in Costa Rica; and off-shore banking. He and wife Margot reside in Naples, with no plans for retirement.
