THE FACE OF HOME AUTOMATION: Shanna Haecker
Universal Design Group/TRIPhase Technologies Owner
“Having a vision and a plan is one thing, but executing it is another. You cannot do it alone. Surround yourself with those that are strong, smart, positive, resourceful, trustworthy and have a solid work ethic. Then watch that vision and plan fall into place. Oh, and a sense of humor really helps!”
Born and raised in a small town, Shanna Haecker inherited a “work hard, play hard” mentality from her entrepreneur parents. No stranger to hard work she got her first job de-tasseling corn at age 13, a business owner at 14, thanks to her grandfather, establishing SHANZ jewelry, gifts, and novelties. Shanna’s entrepreneurial spirit led her to play an essential role shaping TRIPhase Technologies, a home automation company founded with her husband Robert Haecker.
For more than 20 years, Shanna has been bringing her eye for design into the lineup of offerings at TRIPhase Technologies, now with her own division. Universal Design Group focuses on integrating technology into interior design, which is where Shanna’s artistic passion lies. “I love bridging the gap between technology and design. It is thrilling to be able to offer a solution that not only makes the investment perform the best it possibly can, but that looks amazing too,” says Shanna. She feels fortunate to be a part of an exciting industry that is always changing.
Shanna acknowledges that owning a business is demanding, especially with the additional roles of wife and mother, but she stays grounded by her faith and by mindfully approaching each day with gratitude. She remains grateful to the clients that continue to invite TRIPhase technologies into their homes, saying, “We play a very intimate part in how a family is going to live in their home, and some of the best friendships have blossomed because of it.”
