Our Leadership

Rick Hargrove

Rick Hargrove
Chief Executive Officer and Vice President

Rick sets the course for the Abrio family of companies and provides strategic leadership and guidance for the organization and its operational leaders. Part of the organization for 15 years, Rick has served as Abrio’s CEO since 2018, and has been instrumental in expanding the company’s footprint and improving its services.

Growing up, Rick’s aunt was a forerunner in the deinstitutionalization of people with developmental disabilities, which exposed Rick to the importance of this work from an early age. He found himself drawn to the mission to bring dignity and respect to people when they most need it.

Rick has served as the Chair, Vice-Chair, and Treasurer for the Arizona Association of Providers for People with Disabilities (AAPPD). Before his career in home care, Rick served in the Navy for eight years as a submarine sailor.

When he is not working, Rick likes to travel, flip real estate, and watch football with his spouse.

Cindy McClung

Cindy McClung
Founder and President

After operating Abrio for 20 years, Cindy has transitioned into a semi-retirement. Most of her time is focused on ensuring that Abrio remains loyal to its mission and our values. Cindy loves knowing that our clients are receiving the same level of care that she would have wanted her own family members to receive before Abrio’s services were available.

Times have changed so much since she was young, and Cindy sees the positives of both then and now. She likes knowing that she’s sharing wisdom from the past and the present with her children and grandchildren, so they can make positive and safe choices as they grow up. Her favorite saying to them is, “Evaluate the consequences of your choices, and if you can live with the consequences, good or bad, move forward with confidence.”

In her spare time, Cindy loves spending time with her family, horses, and dogs.

Inspired by raising a son with Down Syndrome, Maureen discovered her passion for helping individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families. She has been an integral part of the Abrio team since 2007, providing community-based services for older adults and then for children and adults with developmental disabilities.

Since 1997, Maureen has worked professionally with the developmentally disabled community. Her extensive experience includes helping to start an agency to meet the need for services, including group homes and work training, for the diverse needs of the intellectual and developmentally disabled community in Northern Arizona. Her previous experience also includes working in behavioral health, and, before that, as a paramedic for 10 years.

Outside of work, Maureen enjoys spending time outdoors, swimming at the lake and going four-wheeling.
