Charney joins seated Committee Co-Chair Wes Usie, Guardian Alarm Systems.

An active member of the SVV Committee, Charney quickly came to recognize the enormous potential of the collective group of professionals. “It has been so valuable to have access to my peers to discuss new ideas and to brainstorm various viable solutions to some common challenges that I have faced. We can all learn from each other,” observed Charney, who founded Stealth Monitoring with his father and brother.

“David’s passion for his work is evident in how he interacts within the TMA community. He brings a distinct energy to his new volunteer role that will certainly draw the attention and interest of other members who have an interest in video surveillance. It is an exciting time for video as it has evolved into one of the fastest growing areas of technology in the monitoring and security space today. The Committee will achieve much under David and Wes’s able leadership,” commented TMA CEO Celia T. Besore
