Self-Storage Building and Technology Supplier Janus International Announces Executive Staff Changes

Janus International, a global manufacturer and supplier of building components and security technology for the self-storage industry, has promoted Terry Bagley to president of industry and partner relationships and Christine DeBord to president of Nokē Smart Entry. The moves were made to support the company’s growing technology and access-control business in anticipation of becoming listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) during the second quarter, according to a press release issued by Janus parent company Clearlake Capital Group LP.

“As we work to execute on our strategic objectives and continue to generate strong organic growth, assembling a first-class team to accelerate the development and delivery of an industry-changing product to our customers represents an essential element of our preparations for operating as a public company,” Janus CEO Ramey Jackson said. “Our Nokē business faces the opportunity to penetrate what we believe is an approximately $4 billion market, and in Christine and Terry, we have assembled the best team to help Nokē capitalize on its enormous potential. Christine and Terry are proven executives with significant technology, sales and marketing experience and a nuanced understanding of our industry and partners. [They] are well-positioned to elevate our smart access-control business and support Janus’ growth.”

In his new role, Bagley will foster relationships with industry technology partners, identify merger-and-acquisition opportunities, cultivate international business development, and help expand relationships with institutional customers, the release stated. He has more than two decades of experience in self-storage. Prior to joining Janus as vice president of business development in 2015, Bagley was president and CEO of Centershift Inc., a self-storage software company. He’s also been a board member for the national Self Storage Association.

DeBord will focus on the continued growth and development of the Nokē division. She most recently served as vice president of business development for the company’s Smart Entry and Facility Automation Division. She joined Janus in 2018 as director of marketing after two years at PTI Security Systems, a provider of access-control and security solutions for the self-storage industry.

Janus offers smart access-control technology that allows self-storage tenants to access their units via a mobile device, share mobile keys and remotely monitor unit activity. It also helps facility operators automate the move-in process and increase site security and safety through thermal imaging and fire sensing.

Janus is in the process of completing its merger with Juniper Industrial Holdings Inc., a publicly listed special-purpose acquisition company. Janus will continue to operate under its brand name and be listed on the NYSE under the symbol “JBI.”

Headquartered in Temple, Ga., and founded in 2002, Janus sells roll-up and swing doors, hallway systems, and re-locatable storage units. Its technology division helps self-storage operators automate facility operation, improve security and create a more convenient customer experience, the release stated. It operates 10 U.S. locations as well as manufacturing facilities in Europe and Mexico. Clearlake, a California-based private-equity firm, is the company’s largest shareholder.
