Piero Bussani was elected to the U-Store-It Trust Board of Trustees, effective Feb. 23. He’s expected to stand for re-election at the June shareholders meeting, when his current term of office expires.
"We are pleased to have Piero join our Board as he brings a depth of experience in the retail and hospitality industries,” said William M. Diefenderfer III, U-Store-It Chairman of the Board. “As an independent director, Piero will assist the Board and management with his insight and expertise in financial, real estate, risk management and governance matters."
Bussani formally served as general counsel and executive vice president for WHM LLC (aka Luxury Resorts and Hotels), a hotel-management company that manages hotels and resorts owned by affiliates of the Blackstone Group.
