Self-storage management expert Stephan Ross, president of Cutting Edge Self Storage Management & Consulting, will participate as a presenter in two industry education events.
On Dec. 8, Ross will present a free webinar titled “Is a Management Company Right for You?” The online seminar, scheduled for 1 p.m. ET, will guide self-storage owners and investors in deciding whether to hire a third-party management firm to run their investments.
Ross will discuss the benefits property-management companies offer. He’ll address the unique characteristics of self-storage properties as well as issues of personnel and training, curb appeal, marketing, site visits and audits, and financial considerations. Registration for the event should be completed online at Ministoragemessenger.com.
Ross will also participate as a panelist at the upcoming Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, March 14-16, speaking on the topic of self-storage technology. Ross and other industry experts will lead a discussion on “Self-Storage Software and Security: Evaluating Options, Maximizing Products,” a candid conversation on the important aspects of choosing and using management software and security components.
