TEMPLE, GA, May 6, 2021 – Clearlake Capital Group, L.P. (together with its affiliates, “Clearlake”) portfolio company Janus International Group, LLC (“Janus” or the “Company”), a leading global manufacturer and supplier of turn-key building solutions and new access control technologies for the self-storage industry, announced today that Shane Self has been named Nokē® Smart Entry (“NSE” or “Nokē”) Director of Wireless Networks and Jennifer Shaver has been named Nokē Training & Development Manager.
The appointments reflect Janus’ continued commitment to driving the growth of its smart access control and technology division. With nearly half a million tenant users world-wide, Janus’ Nokē Smart Entry system enhances convenience and peace of mind for self-storage customers (enabling self-storage customers to easily access their facility and unit from their phones, share mobile keys, and remotely monitor the security of their unit) while similarly allowing owner operators to automate the lock check and move-in process, enhance security, and provide premium units that command higher rental rates. Self and Shaver’s appointments expand the Nokē team’s expertise and capabilities as Janus continues to grow the product offering and provide additional smart technology enabled solutions for today’s self-storage owner operators.
“At Janus, we believe that implementing innovative smart access control technologies across the self-storage space will transform the future of the self-storage industry, improving the experience for customers and increasing security and convenience for owners and operators,” Christine DeBord, President of Nokē, said. “We are thrilled to welcome Shane and Jennifer to the Nokē team and look forward to their support in our efforts to advance our best-in-class, award-winning smart access offering and help self-storage owner operators implement this game-changing product in facilities across the globe.”
As Wireless Networks Director, Self will be responsible for overseeing wireless and systems operations, including directing wireless operations managers across Janus’ global footprint, further integration of new products and services into the smart entry product suite, and serving as the primary liaison for wireless technology vendor management. Self has an extensive background in solutions architecture, planning engineering, and network engineering, most recently serving as Director of the Network Engineering team for Boingo Wireless. Self has additionally spent extensive time working for the Department of Defense in Iraq, Afghanistan, Djibouti, Qatar, and Kuwait.
As Training and Development Manager for the Nokē business, Shaver will direct a robust onboarding, training and development program designed to help self-storage owner operators utilizing the smart entry system make the most of the award-winning technology and software’s features and benefits. Shaver has been in the storage industry for nearly a decade, serving in various operations, management and training roles. Shaver’s unique perspective on the self- storage industry positions her well to help the Nokē Smart Entry team continue to develop and design tools and features for modern self-storage operators.
