The Monitoring Association (TMA) announced today the appointment of Steve Walker, vice president of customer service for Minneapolis-based Stanley Convergent Security Solutions, to the executive committee of its board of directors. Walker brings over 20 years of leadership experience in security operations and IT to his new role on the TMA board of directors. TMA is an internationally-recognized non-profit trade association whose mission is to advance the professional monitoring industry through education, advocacy, standards and public safety relationships.   

“I have been proud to serve on the TMA board of directors for many years and have been grateful to be part of an organization that serves our industry in so many important ways,” Walker said. “As I step into this new role, I look forward to helping and serving our leadership team as we navigate the waters of change in the years ahead.”

“Steve’s vast wealth of industry knowledge and experience, coupled with his business acumen, is a tremendous asset to TMA as we look to grow, diversify and keep pace with new technologies impacting our members,” said TMA President Ivan Spector. “We are grateful for his continued service and his many contributions to TMA on behalf of our members.” 

Walker’s career in security began at Honeywell Security where he followed its transition to private equity ownership (HSM Security). He later went on to work for Stanley Black & Decker. In addition to previous service on the TMA board and his current co-chairmanship of the Surveillance and Video Verification Committee, Walker has served on the board of directors (past president) of the Partnership for Priority Verified Alarm Response (PPVAR).
