Strat Property Management Inc., a third-party management firm and facility operator, has hired Travis Morrow as president of its self-storage division, effective Aug. 1. Morrow is joining Strat after 14 years as president of Arizona-based National Self Storage Management Inc., which owns or manages facilities in the Southwest. National’s portfolio will continue under Morrow’s supervision through a sub-management agreement between the two companies, according to a press release.
“This is a very unique opportunity for me, and I am looking forward to joining two first-class self-storage operations,” Morrow said. “I’m excited to become a part of the Strat team.”
Strat plans to have 66 storage sites under management by the end of the year, the release stated. It currently owns or operates 54 facilities in California and Texas. It also manages apartments, condos and townhouses.
“Travis has an extensive self-storage background and is truly a visionary in the industry,” said Strat CEO Don Clauson. “He envisions and shares the same concepts of our core culture. He is involved to an impressive degree in the national Self Storage Association and the Arizona Self Storage Association. We are fortunate to bring in someone who can take our already great operations to the next level.”
NSS operates storage properties in Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas and Utah.
