Tom Vigilante, Jr., President and Founder of Centralized Vision, is an expert in innovative security solutions after spending more than 22 years in the security industry. Headquartered in Phoenix, 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.
With his wife Tami, Vigilante 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. Harnessing innovations in technology and increased bandwidth on the Internet that enabled live video streaming, Vigilante developed an innovative security platform. From its conception, CV has provided pro-active protection of property and assets for companies by using remote-camera monitoring with real-time response options. Today’s CV acts a remote guard, remote concierge and a remote engineer as needed. At a central station equipped with safety-certified operators and video technicians 24 hours a day, Centralized Vision now provides real-time 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. VSS has since 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 a Sales Representative in 1999 and created $2.5 million in sales in the first year. As VSS continued to grow with more efficiency through 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 the 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 with a minor 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.
