Apple Self Storage, which owns 45-plus facilities and provides asset-management services in Canada, has promoted David Allan to president from vice president of development and acquisition. He’ll succeed his uncle and cofounder Scott Allan, who’ll continue as company treasurer and become chair of the investment committee, according to a press release. The change goes into effect Oct. 1.
David Allan joined the company in 2014 and became part owner of its Apple Self Storage Management division in 2018. He’s been instrumental in helping the organization quadruple its owned and managed square footage, the release stated. He serves on the Canadian Self Storage Association Board of Directors, is a former senator for the U.S. Self Storage Association’s Young Leaders Group and participates in various industry committees. He’s also authored several whitepapers.
“We see this as an important step in our next generation of corporate management as well as the next generation of growth,” Scott Allan said. “With the increasing complexity of the storage business, as well as it becoming an established industry segment, it is critical to have a leading-edge management team to serve our partners and customers.”
Apple Storage was founded in 1975 by brothers Jeff, Phil and Scott Allan. Phil, David’s father, is the company’s chairman, while Jeff serves as vice president at large. Apple is expanding its third-party management platform and seeking acquisitions as well as development opportunities.
