Shane Self has been named director of wireless networks, while Jennifer Shaver will be the training and development manager. The appointments reflect the company’s continued commitment to growing its access-control and technology division, according to a press release.
With a background in solutions architecture as well as planning and network engineering, Self will oversee Janus’ wireless and systems operations, including all wireless-operations managers across the company’s global footprint.
