ISS (Intelligent Security Systems), a global provider of video intelligence and data awareness solutions, announced that industry veteran Matthew Tomao has joined the company as a regional business manager for North America.

Specifically, Tomao will be responsible for driving the company’s sales and business development efforts across all markets in the northeastern U.S.

Tomao, a U.S. Army veteran, began his career as an estimator designing and engineering security systems for Peace of Mind Technologies, a New York-based security systems integrator. Prior to joining ISS, Tomao served as a business development manager for another New York-based integration firm, Mutual Security Services, where he was responsible for building a highly profitable interactive video monitoring division from the ground up.

“ISS is on the cutting edge of high-trust video analytics and analytics are the future of the security industry,” Tomao said. “I am excited to work for such an industry leader and I’m looking forward to continuing to grow our footprint in North America.” 

Matt Powell, managing director of North America at ISS, said, “As a New Jersey-based company, our backyard in North America has always been the Northeast. Matt’s relationships in the Northeast and his vast experience in video will not only enrich our relationships, but also focus our efforts in the region.”

Tomao, who is also a published comic book author, resides on Long Island with his wife and three children. He can be reached at

Tomao is the fourth addition to the North American ISS team since June when Powell was named managing director for North America. In the months that have followed, the company has also brought in industry veterans Joel Griffin, director of marketing for North America, and Jacob Jablonski, regional business manager for the Southeast.
