StorageMart, which operates more than 190 self-storage properties across Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, has appointed Lise Nyrop as director of human resources (HR). A veteran of HR initiatives, Nyrop will support the company’s growth by building an HR program and department that will span all StorageMart sites, according to a press release.
"Internally, we've known that StorageMart is a great place to work for years. We look forward to the coming months as Lise helps us translate our great environment into meaningful employee-development programs that we can communicate with those looking to join our team," said Cris Burnam, president. "Lise's dedication to employee engagement made asking her to come aboard a no-brainer for us."
Nyrop’s work experience includes the public and private sector. She’s been employed at ABC Laboratories, Missouri Farm Bureau, Missouri State University and the University of Missouri. While in the education sector, she developed an academic/professional internship program for university students so they could gain real-life experience as well as school credit without sacrificing coursework.
"I'm looking forward to making StorageMart a destination employer, not only in the self-storage industry, but across the board," Nyrop said.
Founded in 1999 and based in Columbia, Mo., StorageMart is privately owned and operated by the Burnam family, which has been in the storage industry for three generations. It serves more than 75,000 self-storage customers, and operates in Chinese, English, Punjabi, Quebecois French and Spanish.
