CSAA names interim EVP


If you’ve been keeping up with SSN’s latest coverage, you probably know that Lou Fiore has been busy recently as an advocate for the industry. Certainly he’s not alone in this respect. But over the last few weeks, Fiore has written a letter (on behalf of the AICC) to the FCC in defense of net neutrality and played a lead role in updating the CP-01 standard, designed to reduce false alarms.

Fiore will now have the chance to apply his advocacy efforts on behalf of the Central Station Alarm Association, now that he’s been named interim executive vice president of the organization, effective Oct. 1. He will assume the position held by outgoing EVP Steve Doyle, who is retiring.

Fiore, who serves as president of L.T. Fiore, a consulting firm specializing in the security industry, is closely involved with numerous industry organizations. A major player in the industry standards arena, Fiore is chairman of the Alarm Industry Communications Committee and of the CSAA Standards Committee. He also chairs SIA’s Security Industry Standards Council and is a long-time member of the Supervising Station Committee of NFPA 72. He’s also been a member of various UL standards technical panels, according to a news release from the CSAA.

“The CSAA executive committee and I are thrilled that Lou has agreed to lead CSAA during this period of change,” Jay Hauhn, president of CSAA, said in a prepared statement. “Lou’s distinctive industry accomplishments uniquely qualify him for the position. I look forward to the next several months with confidence, knowing that the association is in good hands.”
