Ron Ross - President Back to organization on About us page

Ron Ross began his career in the alarm industry in 1979. Prior to the start of Vigilante Security, Inc., Ron rose from the ranks of the building industry as one of the youngest ever in Michigan to be a licensed residential builder. Ron's extensive knowledge of construction helped launch Vigilante Security, Inc., into a leader in Michigan’s alarm market. Originally designed as a residential alarm company, Ron saw a need to provide alarm services to commercial, industrial, and government markets as well. Soon commercial sales were skyrocketing way beyond his expectations. Taking the need a step further, he opened Vigilante Security’s central station monitoring services in 1986 with only 400 accounts. Today, with the help of Vigilante Security’s sister company, Michigan Monitoring Service, Vigilante Security now monitors 40,000 accounts across the entire country. Ron Ross’ plans are far from complete. He plans to expand Vigilante Security, Inc., into markets and services that will move Vigilante Security, Inc., forward for years to come.
