U-Store-It Trust, a self-storage REIT, named Christopher P. Marr as its new chief financial officer. Marr worked with U-Store-Its recently appointed president and CEO, Dean Jernigan, once before. The two were employed by Memphis, Tenn.-based Storage USA from 1994, when the company went public, until it sold in 2002. Marr then served as senior vice president and CFO of Plymouth Meeting, Pa.-based Brandywine Realty Trust, and Jernigan went on to form Jernigan Property Group.
Now the duo looks forward to growing the U-Store-It domain. Marr will assume his new post on June 5th, though he and his wife are still finalizing the details of their move to Cleveland. The couple recently had a baby.
"Chris and I worked closely at Storage USA over an eight-year period. I have a tremendous level of respect for his financial experience and look forward to his partnership with me at U-Store-It," Jernigan said.
