Real estate developer and investor Wasatch Storage Partners (WSP) has hired Nathan Bennett as chief investment officer. In this role, Bennett will lead all aspects of identifying and analyzing the company’s acquisition and development opportunities. He’ll also be a key member of the executive team, responsible for shaping the strategic direction of WSP, according to a press release.
