The William Warren Group Inc. (WWG), a privately held real estate company that operates the StorQuest Self Storage portfolio, has hired Gerald Valle as vice president of operations. Valle will be responsible for the performance of all operational department functions, including oversight of all regional vice presidents and district managers as well as all property-maintenance and call-center efficiencies. He will report directly to chief operating officer Kent Christensen.
“Gerald brings a wealth of knowledge from his years as a storage-industry veteran,” said WWG President and CEO Bill Hobin. “Gerald’s proven skills in asset management and customer-service training will further strengthen our operational focus as we increase the number of self-storage facilities managed by WWG across the United States.”
Valle has more than 24 years of experience in the self-storage industry. He previously served nine years as divisional vice president for Extra Space Storage, where he was instrumental in the creation of the company’s call center. Valle also worked for 15 years at Public Storage, where he held multiple senior roles that ranged from district manager to regional vice president of operations.
