Irving-based NEC Corp. of America announced Carmelo Lisciotto has joined the company as Vice President of Operations for its Advanced Recognition Systems business.
A leading provider and integrator of advanced IT, communications, networking, and biometric solutions, NEC said that Lisciotto brings nearly 30 years of extensive experience in global IT operations, data analytics, public/private/hybrid cloud infrastructure, security, and DevOps to his new role.
“We look forward to providing customers in state and local law enforcement, U.S. Federal government, and aviation with the efficient and cost-effective experiences they expect from NEC with Carmelo on board,” Eugene le Roux, vice president of digital government and international operations for NEC Advanced Recognition Systems.
‘Devout tech capitalist’
Carmelo describes himself as a “devout tech capitalist” on LinkedIn. As VP of Operations, Lisciotto will lead ARS post-delivery operations across three areas of its business namely law enforcement, digital ID, and government. He also will oversee the technical assistance center, service delivery management, field engineering, service transition, contract management, customer success management and monitoring, and SRE, CI/CD automation. the company said.
Before NEC, he was vice president of IT operations and chief security officer for Life Image, a medical evidence and image exchange network, where he led technical production operations, data management, compliance, and security activities.
Lisciotto’s experience with both on-premises and cloud platform infrastructure including AWS, Azure, and OpenShift will support ARS pre-sales and sales teams with estimating operation costs and will promote cloud solution delivery and operational support across multiple customer segments, NEC said.
In 2017, for instance, NEC rolled out programs for its commercial-off-the-shelf NeoFace facial recognition software at various U.S. airports, in partnership with U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
