CSAA EVP Steve Doyle to retire

Wednesday, July 9, 2014

VIENNA, Va.—Steve Doyle, executive vice president of the Central Station Alarm Association, an organization he has led for 22 years, will retired in October, according to a CSAA news release.

“Steve Doyle has ably led our Association for the past two decades, taking on challenges in partnerships, technology, government relations and industry changes. On behalf of the board of directors of CSAA, I thank Steve for his long service and for the contributions he has made to our industry,” said Jay Hauhn, president of CSAA, in a prepared statement.

Doyle has led the association during a period of considerable growth and change, as the CSAA has evolved from an organization known primarily within the industry to one that has achieved international recognition for its programs in education and training, its Five Diamond certification, and for the development of its relationships with the law enforcement, fire and emergency communications public sectors, the release said.

Under Doyle’s leadership, the CSAA Mid-Year Meeting morphed into the Electronic Security Expo, the release noted. In 2014, CSAA is financially sound and its membership at an all-time high.

In the statement, Doyle said: “Twenty-two years ago, I did not know I would make a career at CSAA. However, as I became involved with the outstanding people who make such a personal commitment to the organization, CSAA became a second family. I have had the pleasure of working with some of the most principled people, who give so unstintingly of their time and money to contribute to the industry and help it grow. Through them, CSAA became a purpose and mission in life for me.”

The search for CSAA’s next executive vice president will commence this month, the release noted.
