CMMS Data Group is proud to announce that Stephen Janow has joined its Reliability Engineering Team as a senior reliability engineering consultant in July.
Janow offers over 30 years of reliability engineering and maintenance management experience, helping companies achieve world-class maintenance excellence. He has implemented best practice methodologies, reliability excellence, and CMMS software programs for various organizations and industries. His experience includes auditing and evaluating manufacturing facilities, customizing and implementing world-class maintenance training programs, developing optimal PM programs, optimizing maintenance storerooms, and developing KPI reports to help users take advantage of their CMMS data.
“Steve is probably the most dedicated and motivated individual that I have ever worked with. He was so helpful and went above and beyond to help me and my team accomplish so much in such a short period of time. His application and his level of knowledge, experience, and professionalism are truly commendable.
— Jennifer Van Amersfoort, Maintenance Schedule Planner, Taylor Farms
Janow’s background includes working at the Kroger Company for over twenty years. He started out as a maintenance technician and quickly moved up the ranks, working in planning and scheduling, and then in maintenance and reliability management. Following Kroger, he then worked at Multi-Skill Training Services as a maintenance consultant before joining CMMS Data Group. Janow’s extensive hands-on maintenance and reliability engineering knowledge plays a vital role in helping clients achieve the results they look for.
Under the guidance of Bill Mountjoy, vice president of reliability engineering, Janow’s role is to provide reliability engineering consulting services to CMMS Data Group’s clients. Janow will perform Maintenance Excellence Status Assessments™ (MESAs™), evaluate key performance indicators (KPIs), and instruct departments on how to use their CMMS data to apply reliability best practices and achieve world-class maintenance status.
Janow loves bonding with clients while helping make their jobs easier, which is why he is proud to facilitate CMMS Data Group’s mission – to teach maintenance and facilities departments how to use their CMMS data to achieve maintenance excellence and Make Reliability a Reality™. He says the most efficient way to do this is to show and teach them how to do it and then let them run with it.
“It’s kind of like driving a car. If I’m the passenger and I’m going somewhere new, and someone else is driving, I never remember the directions. I have to be the person driving so I’ll remember how to get there. And this is what I want to do for our customers. I let them do the driving rather than just telling them what they need to do.

Mountjoy says Janow’s outstanding toolset helps CMMS Data Group continue to achieve its goals.
““The addition of Stephen Janow to the Reliability Engineering division further strengthens our capability and commitment to deliver best-in-class maintenance solutions to our customers. Stephen’s 30-year history working at a tactical level to implement successful maintenance excellence foundations is unparalleled. The breadth and capability of our division coupled with our top-rated CMMS software, MVP Plant, set CMMS Data Group apart to deliver holistic solutions to Make Reliability a Reality.
