Hearn at helm
LONG BRANCH, N.J.--Scott Hearn said his goal as the new president of Cooper Notification is to make the company Ã¢â‚¬Å“the preferred global notification solutions provider, fostering a safer environment while innovating notification technologies.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Hearn came onboard in November from Cooper Lighting, where he was vice president of business development. Before that, he ran operations for a $4.5 billion unit of HVAC provider Trane. He began his career at GE, where he spent 15 years in a variety of roles. Hearn replaces Ken Camarco.
In early December, Hearn said heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢d spent the few weeks since his official start Ã¢â‚¬Å“in front of customers.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Cooper Notification, a division of Cooper Industries, comprises several businesses that manufacture and sell notification solutions for fire, security, hazardous areas, mass notification, voice evacuation, and industrial signaling applications.
Mass notification is a newer and growing market sector and Cooper is one of the companies that provides a multi-tiered solution, what Hearn calls a Ã¢â‚¬Å“broad, yet flexible mass notification solution.Ã¢â‚¬Â
CooperÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s strengths in the market, he says, are its Ã¢â‚¬Å“innovation and customer focus.Ã¢â‚¬Â The company intends to grow its Mass Notification System channel partner program (On Dec. 4, it added ArCom Systems of Arkansas and announced it would launch a mass notification and demonstration tour in Arkansas in this month.)
Cooper will focus on Ã¢â‚¬Å“key markets like military, higher education and government, where our expertise and experience can leverage into expanded solutions.Ã¢â‚¬Â
