Monitronics Founder Announces Retirement


Jim Hull, who turned an idea he jotted down on notes during a 1988 plane flight into alarm monitoring giant Monitronics Int’l Inc., will step down as CEO and president of the firm at the end of this month. Hull will retain a role at the firm he founded as Monitronics’ chairman of the board of directors.

From its humble beginnings as a couple of scribbled notes, Monitronics has grown under Hull’s leadership as one of the nation’s top residential security providers with more than 480,000 subscribers.

Mike Haislip, previously Monitronics’ vice president and COO, has taken over the reins of the Dallas-based company as president and CEO.
