President & CEO
If you know Wayne, you’ve heard him tell the story of being a young engineer, visiting a home in Texas where there were issues with piping behind the wall. He rang the doorbell, and a mother answered the door, a baby on her hip and a toddler running around. The house was a disaster – holes in the wall, mold, etc. – because of leaking piping. This family had put their life savings into buying this home, and it was in a state of disrepair because we failed to create a product suitable for its intended use. We, as an industry, failed this family. This is Wayne’s “why”. This is the reason he founded JANA.
Better Piping for a Better World: This is JANA’s mission, and we live by it every day. This Mission defines us, directs us and drives us. We live it by investing deeply in developing the absolute best technology that empowers our clients to genuinely manage their assets in a risk-informed manner and profoundly mitigate the inherent risks of operating pipeline assets. The technical approaches JANA uses provide our clients a clear line of sight on risk.

Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer
At JANA, we believe in Better Piping for a Better World. It’s because of this Mission that we are driving a movement toward a progressive and substantive methodology for risk modeling. Having spent his entire career in the piping industry – from product formulation and development, to market access, to risk modeling and lifetime forecasting – Ken understands the difference between our technology and other standard, established technologies. Under Ken’s technical leadership, JANA’s expert team partners with our clients to develop asset management strategies based on state-of-the-art mechanistic-probabilistic risk modeling, allowing our clients to make fully informed decisions.
