Tom Vigilante, Jr.
President & Founder
Tom Vigilante, Jr. is the President and Founder of Centralized Vision and is an expert in innovative security solutions after spending more than 15 years in the security industry. Headquartered in Phoenix Arizona, Centralized Vision is a leading company that offers real-time video surveillance services to provide safety and security for companies and families throughout the world.
Vigilante and his wife, Tami, founded Centralized Vision in 2007 after hearing the frustrations of business owners who had difficulty in preventing property damage and theft with un-monitored security cameras. With innovations in technology and increased bandwidth on the Internet that enabled live video streaming, Vigilante was able to develop an innovative security platform that provided pro-active protection of property and assets for companies by using remote-camera monitoring with real-time response options. With a central station equipped with safety-certified operators and video technicians 24 hours a day, Centralized Vision now provides real-time video monitoring for companies such as auto dealerships, construction facilities, retail centers, schools, entertainment facilities, sporting venues, recycling facilities, office buildings and warehouse distribution centers.
Vigilante received his start in the security industry while in high school as a part-time security officer working for Vigilante Security Services (VSS), a small security services company his parents founded in 1988 that has currently grown to more than 500 employees and has been recognized as Arizona’s No. 1 security company by Ranking Arizona Magazine. After attending college and developing a strong business acumen as a leading salesperson for an office solutions company, Vigilante returned to work at VSS as Sales Representative in 1999 and created $2.5 million in sales in the first year. As VSS continued to grow with more efficiency with redeveloped marketing campaigns and customer-service programs, Vigilante was promoted to Vice President, Senior Vice President and Executive Vice President. He has been active with many associations, such as American Society for Industrial Security (ASIS) Phoenix Chapter, Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) of Greater Phoenix, National Association of Industrial and Office Properties (NAIOP) and Arizona Association of Community Managers (AACM).
Prior to earning a degree in Sociology and minoring in Communication from Arizona State University in 1996, Vigilante played baseball at Glendale Community College, University of Arizona and Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego. He and his wife, Tami, currently reside in Scottsdale, Ariz. with their children Dayne and Tatum.

Headquartered in Phoenix, Centralized Vision is a leading company that offers real-time monitoring services to provide safety and security for companies and families throughout the world.
Vigilante and her husband, Tom Jr., founded Centralized Vision in 2007 after hearing the frustrations of business owners who had difficulty in preventing property damage and theft with un-monitored security cameras. She maintains great working relationships with all of the company’s clients while also organizing weekly property reports to accurately showcase their 24/7 monitoring coverage.

Vigilante also has a hand in assembling the company’s team of technicians that are safety- and CPR-certified and accustomed to accurately communicating with any type of individual, whether it’s a public safety officer or the executive of a major corporation.
Vigilante developed her customer service and office management skills while working for IKON Office Solutions for seven years from 1992-97. She began her career as an Office Manager and was quickly promoted to Assistant for the company’s Vice President of Sales & Marketing, which allowed her to develop customer service strategies while networking with new business clients. Vigilante became a Junior Sales Representative and supported a team of five Senior Sales Representatives before owning her own territory as a Sales Representative. She met her husband while working at IKON and left her position to start a family while Tom rejoined his parent’s security company, Vigilante Security Services (VSS), as a Vice President.
Being the mother of two children, Dayne and Tatum, Vigilante could not be happier that Centralized Vision is providing deterrents and services to make the world safer for her family and others to live in.
