Former UCC Executive Mark Matlock Joins Pro-Vigil
Matlock will work to drive growth for the recent Lydia Security Monitoring dealer partnership, leveraging Pro-Vigil’s outdoor video monitoring solutions.
SAN ANTONIO — Pro-Vigil, a provider of video-based security solutions, has appointed Mark Matlock to the position of vice president of indirect channel revenue. The hiring follows the company’s recent partnership agreement with Lydia Security Monitoring, operator of leading wholesale central stations COPS Monitoring and UCC.
Matlock, a former contributor to SSI’s “Monitoring Matters” column, will oversee the growth of the Pro-Vigil’s solutions to alarm dealers. He will directly manage Lydia Security Monitoring’s more than 4,200 new dealers that now have access to Pro-Vigil’s solutions.
Matlock, along with the sales and marketing team will assist dealers with the design, sales and installation of solutions. He will work with dealers to deepen their understanding of ways to properly leverage Pro-Vigil’s technology so they can diversify and build recurring revenue.
Matlock enjoyed a 16-year career with UCC/Lydia Security Monitoring, where he served as senior vice president and a vital member of the company’s executive management team. He managed all of the marketing and sales efforts for the company. During his tenure at UCC, Matlock was the driving force behind the company’s rapid growth.
“The partnership and Mark’s appointment have the full support of the executive team. We all understand it’s the right move at the right time for our business’s continued success,” says Pro-Vigil CEO Mark Eblin. “The Lydia Security Monitoring partnership will be extraordinarily impactful, and Mark’s guidance will prove invaluable as it develops over the coming years.”
Pro-Vigil Founder Jeremy White says the company knew going into the partnership with Lydia Security Monitoring that high-level personnel assistance would be necessary to drive growth.
“Mark brings more than 30 years of alarm industry experience along with, of course, his intimate knowledge of UCC. He was instrumental in growing that company into a nationally-recognized central station brand and helped to further their growth after the Lydia acquisition,” White explains. “We’ll rely on his expertise to re-sell our services to dealers and help them understand how easy it is to support live outdoor video monitoring through Pro-Vigil.”
“I’m thrilled to join Pro-Vigil and to help them leverage this very promising partnership with Lydia Security Monitoring,” Matlock says. “I’ve worked in this industry for a long time and am confident my expertise will prove an asset to Pro-Vigil as we aggressively expand our sales footprint. We’ll provide Lydia Security Monitoring’s massive network of dealers with impeccable service and the industry’s very best outdoor video monitoring solution.”
