Lippert Memorial Award posthumously. Mr. De Fina passed away unexpectedly in July 2015. At the time of his death, he was serving on the SIA Board of Directors. The SIA Lippert Award Committee, composed of previous recipients of the Lippert Award, unanimously chose De Fina from a field of nominees. A giant in the security industry “Frank De Fina was a giant in life and in the security industry,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “He was a very kind man whose knowledge, experience and wit made extraordinary contributions to our community. It is with great respect that we present the Lippert Award to him. He is sorely missed, and we will take this occasion to celebrate his life’s work at SIA Honours Night.” Mr. De Fina spent nearly 30 years in the security industry. Prior to joining the Hikvision team, De Fina served as executive vice president of sales and marketing for SightLogix, a manufacturer of smart thermal cameras for outdoor security applications. Before SightLogix, he was executive vice president of sales and marketing for Samsung Techwin America, where he launched new reseller channels, led ambitious sales initiatives, and established strong partnerships with systems integrators serving the North American security market. Mr. De Fina previously spent 26 years at Panasonic, where he eventually became president and chief operating officer at Panasonic Systems Solutions Company. Part of Mr. De Fina’s work with SIA included developing a Security Systems Technology program at Mercer County Community College in New Jersey. SIA will present Mr. De Fina’s family with the 2015 Lippert Award during the SIA honours night gala at The Current at Chelsea Piers in New York, N.Y., on Wednesday, Nov. 18. “Working with SIA was something that Frank enjoyed very much, and I know he would be honoured to receive this award,” remarked Mr. De Fina’s wife, Patricia De Fina. “He was passionate about helping others, and his legacy will continue as young people benefit from the education program he put together for Mercer College.” The Lippert Award The Lippert Award, founded in 1989, is named in honour of George R. Lippert, who dedicated more than 20 years of his life to the security industry and SIA. When evaluating candidates nominated for the award, the SIA Lippert Award Committee considered their long-term service to SIA and the security industry, the impact of their efforts on behalf of SIA and the industry, and their integrity, leadership and diplomacy as demonstrated in industry dealings.
De Fina also made his mark at several other companies, including Samsung-Techwin, SightLogix, and Hikvision Frank De Fina, a security executive whose career spanned more than two decades at Panasonic, died suddenly over the weekend. Since leaving Panasonic in 2008, De Fina also made his mark at several other companies, including security industry players Samsung-Techwin, SightLogix, and Hikvision, where he was employed at his death. 26 years at Panasonic A statement from Jeffrey He, president of Hikvision USA and Canada, reads as follows: “It is with deep regret that I inform you that Frank De Fina passed away over the weekend. Each of us not only grieves at the passing of a tremendous individual but also for the loss his family suffers. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family members.” De Fina worked for 26 years at Panasonic, where he was president/COO of Panasonic System Solutions Company when he left the company in March 2008. During a two-year hiatus from the security industry, he worked as vice-president global sales and marketing for Paul Reed Smith Guitars Ltd., a reflection of his love of music. Building sales infrastructure De Fina’s next industry job was as executive vice president of Samsung-Techwin America, where he was instrumental in building the sales infrastructure and raising awareness of the Samsung brand in the U.S. security marketplace. After leaving Samsung in 2014, he worked for a year as executive vice president of SightLogix, a thermal analytics company, before joining Hikvision, where he was senior director of Hikvision USA and Hikvision Canada at the time of his death. He was also a member of the executive board of the Security Industry Association (SIA). The statement from Jeffrey He continues: “Frank had several causes he deeply believed in and the company will be making contributions to those organisations. Should you desire to send condolences to Frank’s family, please send them to Alex Asnovich [Hikvision head of marketing, director North America] and they will be passed along to his family.”

Most recently he was Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Samsung Techwin America, where he built a team of seasoned industry pros, launched new reseller channels, initiated ambitious sales initiatives and established vendor partnerships. Mr. De Fina previously spent 26 years at Panasonic, rising through the ranks to become President and COO at Panasonic System Solutions Company in 1999. "Frank’s extensive experience creating market-leading businesses is the perfect complement to our world-class technology" Between these two posts, Mr. De Fina took a two-year break from the industry to serve as Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing at Paul Reed Smith Guitars, Ltd., reflecting his passion as an avid collector of vintage guitars and amplifiers and his lifelong love of music. Mr. De Fina currently holds positions on the Executive Board of the Security Industry Association (SIA) and the International Biometrics Industry Association (IBIA). Additionally, he is a board member of the Paley Center for Media (formerly Museum of Television and Radio), as well as a Member of the Board of the New York Friar’s Club Foundation. Mr. De Fina earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration and a Master’s Degree in Communications from Clarion University of Pennsylvania.

Mr. De Fina also studied abroad at the Matsushita Institute for Learning, Hirakata, Japan.
Frank De Fina put Samsung on the map related to video surveillance in the United States market. Five years ago, before the longtime Panasonic executive signed on, the Samsung brand had little traction in the U.S. surveillance market, although the Korean giant was already well known in the broader electronics market. Back then Samsung surveillance cameras were thought of as inferior to Panasonic, Sony or the other brands – if they were thought of at all. Five years later, Samsung is climbing up the market share rankings. A lot of the success can be attributed to Samsung’s technological advances and the innovation of new products they are bringing to market. The products have gotten better, true, but De Fina gets the credit for building a solid management infrastructure and expanding the distribution channels over the last five years. Now, those elements will be continuing without him. “I’m leaving the company in better shape than I found it,” said De Fina, Samsung’s executive vice-president, North America. He emphasises that his parting with Samsung at the end of May is “amicable” and “based on personal reasons,” among them a grueling 106-mile-a-day commute. “I want the industry to know I’m taking a breather,” he said. “I want to adjust my life to better suit some of the issues I have.” “Building the Samsung brand and credibility were the main focus early on,” De Fina said. “You have to have great products, great people and success stories by customers who were willing to take a chance.” His only regret is that it took five years to accomplish the turnaround. “I wish I could have done it in two years instead of five,” he said. “Five years ago, it was literally a shell,” De Fina remembers. “There were no processes and no team. I am pleased to say I organised and built a great team. The credit for building the business goes to that team.” The success has been notable as Samsung has increased its market share in the United States and is on track to increase U.S. video surveillance sales by more than 75 percent this year over last. ”The team at Samsung is great, and I don’t want them to suffer from this (departure) being misunderstood,” said De Fina in a telephone conference call with a dozen or so security industry journalists. In the call, he deferred any mention of his possible successor to “the management at Samsung.” What’s next for Frank De Fina? One possibility is to work as a consultant, he said. “I’d like to be a business professor at Princeton (near my home), but I don’t have a degree in physics, and they would probably check,” he joked.

Samsung Techwin America, a global supplier of video surveillance and security products combining superior performance and value, is showcasing its support for A&E partners through outstanding project-implementation tools like BIM Revit. The software has enjoyed great popularity since its release and enhances the availability of the company’s IP portfolio on the popular building information modelling (BIM) web service Autodesk Seek. The BIM-ready IP camera lineup, including accessories, can be easily accessed inside of AutoDesk Revit®, AutoCAD® and on the Autodesk® Seek web site. Autodesk® Seek is a key configurator and systemisation tool enabling architects and engineers to easily access, preview and download 3D renderings of Samsung products. “BIM technology holds enormous potential for improving video surveillance designs and implementations and is therefore a key tool for Samsung,” said Frank De Fina, Samsung’s Executive Vice President, North America. “The service gives users the information they need, in an interactive visual format, to select the right Samsung product solution for their project.” The Autodesk® Seek free web service enables architects, engineers, and other design professionals to quickly discover, preview, and download branded and generic building information modelling (BIM) files, models, drawings, and product specifications directly into their active design sessions in Autodesk Revit® or AutoCAD® software. Users can view, rotate, zoom, and slice product models, and then download the accurate, lightweight files directly into the design session. For example, using the Revit application, the designer selects a camera from the Samsung IP product portfolio and places the camera icon into the Autodesk Revit building diagram. Automatically, a 3D rendering is created allowing the designer to visualise the camera coverage area and then adjust the design for optimum performance. Samsung Techwin IP products are available on Autodesk Seek, or through the Samsung website on the BIM Revit tab of the website.
