Self-Storage Supplier Janus International Announces Changes to Board of Directors

Janus International Group, a global manufacturer and supplier of building solutions and access-control technology for the self-storage industry, announced that Tony Byerly, Joseph F.

The appointments come following the board departures of José E. Feliciano and Colin Leonard of Clearlake Capital Group LP, who had been directors since 2021. Clearlake acquired Janus in 2018 but sold off 98.24% of its stake in the company in September, according to a source.

“We thank Clearlake and specifically José and Colin for their partnership over the last six years and congratulate them on their exit,” Fradin said. “We believe Janus will be well-served with the new director leadership going forward. Tony, Joseph, and Eileen bring a wealth of experience in security, finance, cybersecurity and technology to the board, and we look forward to their insights and expertise.”

“We are pleased to welcome Tony, Joseph and Eileen who will further strengthen and diversify our board,” said Janus CEO Ramey Jackson. “We look forward to leveraging their broad range of knowledge and experience to expand our platform and advance our corporate strategy to combine best-in-class self-storage offerings with new and innovative technologies.”
