IREGC and Moove In Self Storage Announce 3 Staff Promotions, 1 New Hire

The Investment Real Estate Group of Companies (IREGC), which manages the Moove In Self Storage brand, has announced three staff promotions and a new hire, according to a press release.

Brian Foran was promoted from director of operations to vice president of operations for Moove In, where he’ll oversee portfolio operation, including property performance and reporting and compliance with policies and procedures. Prior to joining the company, he spent 11 years as senior manager of operations efficiency and district manager for self-storage real estate investment trust Extra Space Storage Inc. There he was responsible for identifying and implementing improvements for property repairs and maintenance, conducting staff training, and overseeing special projects. As district manager, he oversaw 17 sites comprising more than 1.3 million rentable square feet.

“I have had the privilege of working closely with Brian since he started,” said Chris Riley, chief operating officer and chief financial officer (CFO) for IREGC. “Brian has many traits that I am most fond of, including his magnanimous approach to helping others succeed. Brian is genuine in his support of anyone that he can help, both professionally and personally.”

IREGC also promoted Erik Peckman, who joined the company in January 2020, from accountant to senior financial analyst. He conducts detailed underwriting of transactions for investors, owners and lenders, and provides performance reporting for the portfolio managed by Investment Real Estate Management. This includes development planning, determination of growth projections, seven-year pro forma forecasting, expense modeling and return calculations.

Since joining IREGC, Erik has been instrumental in moving many of our teams forward in our growth journey,” Riley said. “In addition to supporting the accounting, operations and brokerage teams, Erik assists the acquisitions team in helping assess market demand, competition and, most importantly, in preparing our financial underwritings. Through Erik’s timely and accurate support, we are now able to not only look at more opportunities, but also respond nimbly in a very competitive seller’s market.”

Carrie Zimmerman was promoted from staff accountant to accounts payable and accounting supervisor. Her responsibilities include providing support in banking and treasury, accounts payable and receivable, account-analysis review, and financial reporting. She also works with the controller and chief financial officer on special projects and reporting. Additionally, Zimmerman will focus on developing and implementing more robust accounts payable, plus construction-accounting policies and processes. Prior to joining the company, she worked for The Stewart Cos. for seven years. With 15 years of experience, she’s held numerous accounting roles in banking and finance for nonprofits and small and large corporations in York, Pennsylvania.

“It’s hard for me to believe Carrie has only been with us eight months. Carrie has brought a lot of energy to our accounting department. She has integrated seamlessly into our team, tackling problems head on, and bringing a fresh perspective and new, innovative ideas to us,” said Jessica Lacklin, controller for IREGC.

Finally, IREGC hired Brian Davison as vice president of brokerage, responsible for leading a team of sales agents and support staff in the listing and selling of properties in 12 states. He’ll focus on driving company growth and profitability, develop new initiatives, and contribute to the company’s strategic planning. Davison was formerly a commercial realtor for nearly 10 years at High Associates Ltd., where he focused on brokerage for office and industrial properties. He holds a real estate license in Pennsylvania, and Certified Commercial Investment Membership and Society of Industrial and Office Realtors designations. He’s a member of the Lancaster County Association of Realtors.

“I am really excited to have Brian on board. He not only has a proven track record of success in brokering properties within all sectors of commercial real estate, but Brian also has extensive experience in leading and coaching sales teams. I look forward to Brian leading our brokerage platform to the next level of growth,” Riley said.

Founded in 1998, IREGC includes Investment Real Estate LLC and Investment Real Estate Construction LLC.

Moove In operates 44 facilities in Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
