WOODBRIDGE, N.J.—Seasoned and highly respected executive Janet Fenner, formerly with Dahua Technology U.S.A., was recently hired by Intelligent Security Systems to take on a newly created role as chief marketing officer.

“I am extremely excited to join the ISS team as they are such a progressive and forward-looking company,” Fenner told Security Systems News by email. “The physical security industry is shifting toward a software-centric system model as IP devices continue to be recognized as commoditized edge devices. ISS is driving new software solutions that enable and provide AI and predictive analysis—capabilities that users want, yet few companies can actually provide. Look for new and exciting developments from ISS as we continue to differentiate our position as the thought leaders in software solutions for the physical security industry.”

In her new role at ISS, Fenner will be responsible for all marketing activities globally, including the development and execution of new branding and positioning strategies to support new business initiatives. Fenner reports directly to ISS CEO Aluisio Figueiredo, and has also been appointed to the ISS Executive Director’s Board, the most senior committee in the company, reporting to the full board.

“We are excited and proud to have Janet join the ISS team,” Figueiredo said in the announcement. “Janet’s extensive industry experience and proven marketing, branding and alliance-building skills will help to contribute to our continued growth and expansion.”

Prior to Dahua, Fenner served at Hanwha Techwin America (formerly Samsung Techwin) and the Brady Corporation. She is also an active supporter and an advisory board member of Mission 500, a charitable organization focused on the professional security community’s efforts to assist children and families in need across the U.S.

Fenner was also recently recognized as one of the security industry’s top female leaders and newly appointed to the Security Industry Association’s Board of Directors.

Intelligent Security Systems, based here, and with offices worldwide, specializes in video management and video analytics software. ISS also provides a comprehensive line of digital security and surveillance video solutions, allowing for centralized command and control of an entire enterprise security network.
