Shooter Detection Systems announces the appointment of Stephen Carney as President and Rich Onofrio as CTO.
Shooter Detection Systems (SDS), an (NASDAQ: ALRM) company and a provider in gunshot detection solutions, is delighted to announce the appointment of Stephen Carney as the company’s new President. Mr. Carney previously served as Vice President of Global Product Management for HID Global. Additionally, Rich Onofrio, former Managing Director of SDS, has assumed the role of Chief Technology Officer, leading the Engineering team following the retirement of Ronald Fowler, the company's original CTO.
Carney brings over 15 years of experience in the physical security industry to SDS. Prior to his Global Product Management role at HID Global he oversaw product management and marketing for the world’s largest access control supplier, the Physical Access Control Solutions Business Area (PACS) at HID. Carney also held the position of Senior Director for Video Surveillance, Integration Solutions, and Cybersecurity at Tyco Security Products and Johnson Controls, spending ten years specializing in video surveillance. Before his physical security career, Carney served as a product manager in the lottery industry and as a trial attorney. A member of the Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island bars, he specialized in complex commercial litigation and construction law. Carney graduated Cum Laude from Pace University School of Law and began his career as a Lieutenant in the U.S. Army, completing two combat tours in the Middle East as a Platoon Leader and Patriot Missile Operator.
Steve Carney, President of SDS said, “Joining a company with such an essential mission and leading a team of passionate, caring, and talented individuals is extremely meaningful to me." He added that "I'm excited to help the company and our partners expand their gunshot detection products and services portfolio and, most importantly, make a difference with this life-saving technology."
Rich Onofrio previously served as SDS's Managing Director for two years and as its Vice President of Hardware Engineering, after joining SDS as one of its original employees in 2014. After former CTO Ronald Fowler's retirement, Rich was appointed CTO to lead the Engineering team and oversee manufacturing and product development for the company. Fowler and Onofrio have jointly authored 10 gunshot detection patents and have worked together on the Boomerang Shooter Detection System development team during their time at Raytheon.

 Onofrio, CTO of SDS said,“My career has been centered on gunshot detection development for over 14 years." He added, “My role as Managing Director provided an invaluable opportunity to grasp how the front end of the business operates. I look forward to applying the insights I gained over the past two years to my new role as CTO, and I'm excited to rejoin the day-to-day operations of the Engineering team.”
