Diane Tipton, owner of CE Group LLC (Self Storage Zone), has been a Girl Scout her whole life, and says she’s used the leadership and team-building skills she learned through the organization to succeed in business. She has been actively engaged in the Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital since 1997 and was named president of the council last year.
Tipton launched her storage business in 1987. Since then, she has developed, owned and managed more than 1.8 million square feet of self-storage in 17 projects throughout Maryland, New Jersey, New York and Virginia. According to an article in the Washington Business Journal, Tipton’s business strategy is to build from scratch, manage and lease the facility to stabilization, and sell the portfolio when the time is right.
