The Board sought a candidate who could return Vicon to prominence in the video security and surveillance systems market
Eric Fullerton will succeed Kenneth M. Darby as Chief Executive Officer and as a Director of Vicon

Vicon Industries, Inc., a designer and producer of video security and surveillance systems has announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Eric Fullerton, formerly Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Milestone Systems A/S, to succeed Kenneth M. Darby as Chief Executive Officer and as a Director of Vicon.

In its search for a new CEO, the Board sought a candidate who could return Vicon to prominence in the video security and surveillance systems market and also integrate the businesses and operations of Vicon and IQinVision, Inc. following their recently completed merger.

“We had very specific criteria for our new CEO, and we were highly strategic about finding the right person -Eric is that person,” said Julian A. Tiedemann, a Vicon Director, “No one better understands the market intersection of video management software and HD/megapixel cameras, which he demonstrated during his 10 year tenure at Milestone Systems, the world’s leading provider of open platform IP video management software. Eric has a recognized ability to set strategy, lead teams and drive growth and innovation at the highest level. He is also a natural cultural fit for Vicon. This is a great development for our company.”

Following senior positions at netVigilance, Inc., Intel and Nokia, Fullerton joined Denmark based Milestone Systems A/S in 2004. During his tenure, the company grew from start up to more than $70M in revenue and was named a Europe Fast 500 company.

“It is a great privilege to be asked to lead Vicon at this important juncture in the company’s history,” said Fullerton. “I see great opportunities ahead for us by combining IQinVision’s strong brand in HD/megapixel cameras with the long history that Vicon has in video management systems. I look forward to joining this great team."
