Jackson Wilson, chief technology officer for Storage Post Self Storage, was honored as a finalist in the corporate category of the 2012 Georgia CIO of the Year Awards on Oct. 12. The awards banquet was held at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta and was attended by nearly 700 local leaders.
Held annually by the Georgia CIO Leadership Association (GCLA), the CIO of the Year Awards recognize technology executives in the state of Georgia who have demonstrated superior management of their company's information systems. The 2012 finalists were chosen based on the measurable impact they have in their organization within four categories: nonprofit, enterprise, corporate and global. The GCLA promotes industry growth and professional development for chief information and technology officers, and encourages discussions among senior leaders.
Wilson is responsible for the continuous improvement of Storage Post's technology infrastructure, including its business-intelligence platform, online strategy and department-wide system evaluations. He also has extensive experience with buying-behavior identification and online sales methods and is adept at implementing processes for faster communication between the company and its clients, according to a company press release.
"I'd like to congratulate Jackson on this exciting honor. He truly is a skilled and knowledgeable member of the Storage Post corporate team," said Jack Chaney, chief operating officer. "We believe that everything starts with our people, and that Storage Post is successful—especially in our advanced technology programs—because of the talent and dedication of our staff."
Headquartered in Atlanta, Storage Post has locations throughout Georgia (1), Louisiana (5), New Jersey (2) and New York (14). The company is actively pursuing self-storage acquisitions.
