Monitronics Executive and Two Authorized Dealers are Honored by Security System News

Monitronics Security has a substantial presence on the 2015 Security Systems News “20 Under 40” integrators list, including one Monitronics executive and leaders of two companies from its authorized dealer network.

The magazine honored Barbara Holliday, senior director of Dealer Support for Monitronics; Ben Brookhart, CEO of Power Home Technologies; and Brian Fabiano, chief marketing officer for Alliance Security.

Holliday, who started with Monitronics in 1998, congratulated her fellow award winners. “I’ve long admired the careers and accomplishments of previous 20 Under 40 honorees,” she said. “It’s a privilege to be in the 2015 class, and I’m honored to have been included with such an outstanding group of people.”

“It is a privilege to have been a part of this important work all of these years, and I look forward to many more,” she added. “I’m excited to be a part of this industry right now. Everything is moving so quickly that I learn something new every day.”

Brookhart has been involved in the security industry since 1997, and co-founded Power Home Technologies in 2004. The company has been a Monitronics authorized dealer since 2011, and now has locations in seven Southeastern states. Like Holliday, he sees huge potential, and expects the next few years to be “the best the security business has ever seen” for new customer growth.

“As I look back over the past 18 years I’ve been in the industry, I’m most excited about what is to come,” he said. “The technology advancements that we’re experiencing right now are rapidly changing and allowing us to offer our customers so much more than just a keypad, three door contacts and a motion sensor.”

Alliance Security has been a Monitronics authorized dealer since 2008. Fabiano was an IT contractor for a security dealer before co-founding Alliance Security in 2003.

I’m excited to be chosen, especially along with such a group of fantastic people in our field,” he said. “Without the support of everyone in our company who push Alliance to think outside the box and do the things we do, I certainly wouldn’t have been selected.”

Coming from an IT background gives Fabiano a slightly different perspective than other integrators, but he reaches the same conclusion. The outlook is positive, he says, though change probably will be driven by smart consumers rather than any specific technology.

“The industry is moving more to the smart home sector, and consumer expectations are greater than what they used to be,” he said. “Because of that, we’re now seeing a lot of individuals with a diverse set of talents who can bring new skills to the industry.”

All 20 winners will be honored at the annual TechSec conference in Delray Beach, Fla. on Feb. 2 and 3, 2016.
