Scott Stubbs, executive vice president and chief financial officer of self-storage real estate investment trust (REIT) Extra Space Storage Inc., has been elected to the board of directors for ZAGG Inc., a global manufacturer and distributor of accessories for mobile devices. Stubbs has joined the board as an independent director, effective immediately, according to a press release.
In conjunction with Stubbs’ appointment, ZAGG announced its chief financial officer, Bradley J. Holiday, has resigned as a board director. The election of Stubbs keeps the ZAGG board at five directors, four of whom are independent.
Stubbs has served in his current positions at Extra Space since 2011, beginning as senior vice president of finance and accounting from the company’s inception. In December 2000, he became corporate controller with Extra Space’s predecessor company, according to the release. The REIT has been publicly traded since 2004.
"Scott's 15 years of experience in senior financial roles at a public company will add valuable expertise and strategic insight to our board of directors," said Cheryl A. Larabee, chair of the ZAGG board. "We appreciate his willingness to serve as a director and look forward to benefitting from his judgment and counsel."
Prior to Extra Space, Stubbs also served as chief financial officer for the Lyon Co. and was U.S. controller of Critchley Inc. He was a consultant with Neilson, Ellgren, Durkin & Co. from November 1992 through June 1995. He’s a licensed Certified Public Accountant and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accountancy from Brigham Young University.
ZAGG and its subsidiaries design, produce and distribute mobile-accessory solutions. Products from the company's three brands—iFrogz, InvisibleShield and ZAGG—include device cases, gaming solutions, keyboards, power management and screen protection.
Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Extra Space owns or operates 1,146 self-storage properties in 35 states; Washington, D.C.; and Puerto Rico. The company’s properties comprise approximately 775,000 units and 85 million square feet of rentable space.
