SpareFoot, an online marketplace for self-storage consumers, has appointed Cory Michner and Emma Nostrand as team leaders of its Client Relations Team, which provides onboarding and implementation for new customers and support for existing ones. Michner will oversee new clients, while Nostrand will handle existing ones. Both will be responsible for training new team members, according to the SpareFoot blog.
Michner is originally from St. Louis, Mo., and Nostrand hails from New Jersey. According to the company, Michner played football for the University of Texas Longhorns; worked as a fly-fishing guide in Alaska, Argentina and Norway; taught English in Argentina; and won a fiction-writing award.
SpareFoot’s Client Relations Team has grown from two people in 2009 to a staff of nearly 20. The company will continue to add team members as more self-storage facilities join SpareFoot.com, according to the blog.
Founded in 2008, SpareFoot helps consumers find and reserve self-storage units, with comparison shopping tools that show real-time availability and exclusive deals. With a network of more than 7,000 storage facilities ranging from mom-and-pop operations to real estate investment trusts, the company reaches prospective storage renters though partnerships with brands including SelfStorage.com, ForRent.com and Penske Truck Rental.
