SAN JOSE, Calif. — LonMark, a nonprofit association for the certification, education, and promotion of interoperability standards for control networking, has announced the addition of three new members to its board of directors. The new members from APICE and LG CNS provide the LonMark board with expertise on the system integration business, while the member from McDonalds Corp. provides insight into the quick-service restaurant industry.

“I am looking forward to working with our new board members as we strengthen our global focus on three strategic markets: energy efficient buildings, outdoor lighting, and automated food service,” said Barry Haaser, executive director, LonMark International. “Our new board members will help LonMark International foster the global adoption of open, interoperable systems.”
