Evolon Technology Taps CTO to Succeed Retiring Chief Executive Officer

Hired on as chief technology officer a year ago, Tom Galvin succeeds Kevin Stadler who retired earlier this month. Galvin also has been appointed to the company's board to replace Stadler.

Evolon Technology Inc., a Dallas-based developer of proprietary software technology that takes surveillance video and turns it into real-time actionable information, announced that Tom Galvin has been elected president and chief executive officer.

Formerly the company’s chief technology officer, Galvin succeeds Kevin Stadler who retired earlier this month. Galvin has been appointed to the company’s board to replace Stadler.

“On behalf of everyone at Evolon, I’d like to extend our sincere gratitude to Kevin Stadler for his three years of service to the company,” Galvin said in a statement. “Kevin’s high integrity, leadership, hard work, and career experience with AI have helped to establish Evolon as a trusted brand.”

Galvin came to Evolon as CTO in March 2022, leading its R&D, product development, and product management efforts.

Under his leadership, the company has made a significant investment in new product development resulting in new product releases of Evolon Edge and Evolon Enterprise. The upgrades support new technical partnerships with Milestone Systems and Hanwha Techwin and showcase improved user experiences that simplify video analytic installation and usability, Evolon said.

High-tech security industry veteran

Previously, Galvin founded and led Razberi Technologies as CEO before its acquisition by ACRE in 2020.

Before that, Galvin founded and led NetVideo Consulting, a concern that provided strategic product and M&A consulting to security manufacturers and software vendors.

NetVideo Consulting was commissioned by the Open Network Video Interface Forum to build and launch the industry’s first interoperability compliance tool for camera manufacturers. It also built and developed a video management platform that was acquired in an asset sale to GVI Samsung.

Before NetVideo Consulting, Galvin was vice president of engineering at General Electric Fire and Security, where he drove the company’s transition from CCTV products to networked video, prior to the company’s sale to UTC.

Galvin began his security industry career in 2001 when he joined Loronix as VP of product development and stayed through the company’s successful IPO as Verint Systems Inc.

Late last year, Evolon announced a strategic partnership with ZeroEyes to develop long-range AI gun detection technology.
