Self-Storage Building Supplier MakoRabco Announces New CEO

MakoRabco, a nationwide supplier of buildings and construction-related services for the self-storage and boat/RV-storage industries, has appointed Jim Reinhart as its new CEO. He’s replacing John Cross, who’s served in the position since 2021. Cross is retiring but will continue as an advisor during the transition, according to a press release.

“Jim possesses an unparalleled depth of experience and leadership qualities, which make him the ideal choice to steer MakoRabco into its next phase of growth,” said Steve Larned, senior principal at New State Capital Partners, the private-equity firm that owns MakoRabco. “With his track record of operational excellence and deep commitment to organizational culture, we are confident that he will excel in executing our strategic vision, advancing our market leadership and creating value for MakoRabco shareholders.”

Reinhart has served in various executive-leadership roles for more than 20 years. He’s the former chief operating officer for QTS Realty Trust Inc., a real estate investment trust in the data-center sector. He also served as CEO and president of The Ygrene Energy Fund and National Credit Care. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Reinhart earned an MBA from Harvard Business School and a master’s from the University of Maryland.

“We are thrilled to have Jim join our ranks,” said Angie Guerin, executive vice president and board member of MakoRabco. “It is clear that he brings not just a solid resume and skillset, but an organic and deep-seated desire to connect, collaborate and create—all principles that were deeply ingrained in the organization through our founders.”

“I am truly honored to join the MakoRabco team, a collective of talented, dedicated and innovative contributors whose efforts have undeniably positioned the company at the cutting edge of self-storage building solutions in the industry,” Reinhart said. “I am excited to work with them to build on our remarkable history and leverage our differentiated platform to grow the market, deliver outstanding service to our customers and capitalize on new opportunities.”

MakoRabco specializes in building design, supply and installation. The company formed in March 2022 when Mako Steel Inc., founded in 1993, and Rabco Enterprises, founded in 1988, joined forces. It now operates from offices in Carlsbad, California, and Winter Garden, Florida.
