Bigstar Owner Scott Zuniga will remain with the company to serve as the Felix Media Solutions director of security sales.
AUSTIN, Texas — Felix Media Solutions (FMS), based here, has expanded its service offerings to include security systems design and integration with the acquisition of regional security dealer Bigstar Security.
Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Bigstar Security, an Alarm.com authorized dealer, is also based in Austin. Owner Scott Zuniga will remain with the company to serve as the FMS director of security sales.
Zuniga has 17 years of experience in the industry, having spent most of his career focused on designing and implementing service programs that provide “superior peace-of-mind to clients with security needs,” according to an announcement.
“The last few years of Bigstar’s business was focused on helping our clients migrate their legacy alarm, access control and camera systems to the Cloud,” Zuniga says. “Joining forces with FMS allows us to continue this mission on a larger scale.”
FMS CEO Lionel Felix comments he noticed that adding security design and installation services helps the company in its goal “to provide simple, stress-free and easy-to-use solutions for clients from inception to integration.”
“I think with the rise in crime lately — especially locally — there has been an urgent demand for service,” he adds. “Security systems integration is a natural outgrowth of our existing technical knowledge and a great way for us to do what we do best — help our clients.”
Citing his deep client base and expertise, Felix says Zuniga was “the perfect choice” to help FMS develop its roster of security services.
“He’s been a hands-on team member, helping to grow the skill base of our work force and challenging us to grow in new directions from a system-design perspective. I can’t wait to see where this takes us,” Felix says.
