Minh Tran has joined The Jenkins Organization Inc., a Texas-based commercial real estate and development company, as director of storage acquisitions.
Tran, who was previously a financial consultant at AXA Advisors, will focus on the expansion of The Jenkins Organization’s footprint of self-storage properties in Texas as well as spearhead efforts to expand the company’s portfolio nationally.
“I’m excited about the opportunity to join one of the premier storage companies in the industry,” Tran said. “The Jenkins Organization has a great infrastructure, management team, and an owner who’s enthusiastic about growing the portfolio and the brand.”
“We’re very excited to have someone with Minh’s background and experiencecome on board,” said Ricky Jenkins, president of The Jenkins Organization. “Not many professionals in our industry have been involved in more than $1 billion in transactions. His experience, coupled with our company’s aggressive appetite for storage properties, makes it a logical fit.”
Prior to joining The Jenkins Organization and AXA Advisors, Tran worked primarily with storage operators on the acquisition, disposition and financing of self-storage facilities. He has worked for Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP, Storage Investment Advisors and CB Richard Ellis, all with the same group of storage specialists.
The Jenkins Organization Inc. currently owns and manages 47 self-storage properties throughout the Texas and Louisiana region.
