Win Hansen has now been moved into his new role as production manager. Since starting at Access Innovations in 2009, Win has performed myriad tasks for the company and has learned every aspect of the business. This makes him uniquely suited to the wide range of tasks a production manager is required to perform. His versatility, taxonomy building expertise, and people management skills make him the perfect person for the role. Margie Hlava, President of Access Innovations, stated, “Win has been one of our most flexible and versatile employees for some time. He’s willing to get his hands dirty with any project, no matter how strange, with all of his enthusiasm and effort. He is a valuable asset to the Access Innovations family and we are all thrilled with his promotion to Production Manager.”
Win remarks, “I am very excited about this great opportunity. While I know there will be a lot to learn, I am certain that I am more than ready for what’s in store for me and I’m prepared, through this promotion, to help take Access Innovations into the future.”
Win started as a taxonomist at Access Innovations and, later, served as office manager and the company’s graphic designer. He has been involved in projects of all kinds, from taxonomy development to animation and more. Win has led projects for Triumph Learning, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), JSTOR, the American Institute for Physics (AIP), Harvard Business Publishing, and many more.
Win attended the University of New Mexico, where he earned degrees in history, religion, and art, and he vigorously continues in the classroom to this day. His interests include ceramics, photography, travel, chicken breeding, and beekeeping.
