ATM security and compliance expert, Jim Johnson has joined Sharenet, a full-service provider of ATM services for financial institutions.

The Syracuse, NY-based company provides banks and credit unions with turn-key ATM management services for their off-premise and branch needs. Sharenet’s products and services — including a full-service outsourcing program, a surcharge-free ATM network and a branding program — alleviate the operational and regulatory headaches involved with managing ATMs.

Johnson joins the Sharenet team as account executive for the Northeastern US, bringing with him over 27 years of service and sales experience in ATMs and security equipment with Diebold. After retiring in late 2013, he worked as a consultant for several banks and credit unions on ATMs, security and compliance projects and issues.

“We are excited to have Jim on our team,” says Ray Davis, Sharenet CEO. “His knowledge of ATMs and, especially, security and fraud prevention will be an asset  to our customers.”

“Recent merchant security breaches have shined a light on the vulnerability of the US payments infrastructure,” says Johnson. “Our customers entrust us with their physical and monetary assets but also with their reputations and brand images. Using my experience and knowledge of security and compliance, our customers can be assured we will be vigilant to protect them and their image.”

Prior to entering the ATM industry, Johnson served in the U.S. Air Force and worked with flight simulators as a field engineer with Link Flight. When he is not working with financial institutions for ATM and security success, he writes a series of children’s books called “Sundown Stories,” the first three of which are currently available for purchase.
