Jay Hauhn outlines plans for CSAA

 - 
Wednesday, April 1, 2015

Jay Hauhn, 38-year industry veteran and former Tyco Integrated Systems’ CTO, is the new executive director for CSAA.

Hauhn told Security Systems News his biggest goal is to “increase and drive member value.”  

Hauhn served as president of CSAA, a volunteer role, since October of 2013. In his new role, which begins April 6, he’ll be more involved with the organization’s day-to-day workings.

“Instead of being the [president], with the vision and just stating what it is you want done, when you become executive director it’s your responsibility [to get it done].”

Hauhn also wants to recruit more CSAA volunteers. “To do that, you’ve got to make sure that you have the correct programs in place with a vision of what those programs are going to accomplish.”

Hauhn said that his experience as CTO of Tyco will help him lead CSAA. “It is [the] rapidly escalating and changing technology that is changing the industry.”

“We are a standards-driven industry,” Hauhn said. “So working with UL on the future of the industry is going to be incredibly important. That will really use my technical expertise.”

He cited home automation, eliminating POTS lines, net neutrality and the adoption of CSAA’s ASAP program as examples of current technological changes in the industry.

Hauhn said he considered that possibility of becoming CSAA executive director after Steve Doyle retired in October. He was officially offered the position on March 23.

“I was not really sure I was ready to actually retire. So this gave me an opportunity to come back and do something that’ll be fun, and I know that I can bring CSAA forward,” Hauhn said.
