Self-Storage Firm IREGC Announces New Batch of Hires, Promotions for February 2023

The Investment Real Estate Group of Companies (IREGC), which specializes in self-storage brokerage, construction and management and operates the Moove In Self Storage brand, hired four people and promoted one employee. This is the latest in a series of staff-related announcements the company has made in 2023. IREGC made three hires earlier this month and publicized several promotions in January.

Tina Damron joined Moove In as a district manager, responsible for a new district that includes Harrisburg and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, as well as the state of Iowa. Her goal is to support properties in those areas, focusing on team development and performance enhancement. She has more than nine years of self-storage experience, previously serving in the same role with two mid-sized operators.

Nancy Delach has been hired as vice president of human resources (HR), responsible for directing company policies and staff-related activities. She’ll also work to ensure legal compliance and implementation of IREGC’s mission and talent strategy. Delach has more than 12 years of experience in talent recruiting and acquisition, team training and development, benefit design and administration, and payroll. She previously led HR for CallRevu, ezStorage and Priority 1 Automotive Group.

James Fleming joined the company as a construction-project manager. His responsibilities include collaborating with engineers and architects, planning all construction operations, and scheduling intermediate phases. He’ll also work with the construction team to evaluate progress and prepare detailed reports and timelines. Fleming has worked in the retail facilities and construction fields for 25-plus years. His expertise includes contracts, exterior signage, new-store builds, and office and store remodels.

Jack Fritsche has been hired as chief financial officer, overseeing all aspects of financial planning such as accounting, analysis and reporting, acquisitions, and investor relations. He’ll also serve on the IREGC leadership team with setting organization-wide goals and strategic planning. Fritsche has more than 20 years of experience in senior financial leadership roles in various commercial real estate sectors.

“We are thrilled to have Jack join our leadership team during a time of growth for the company,” said Chris Riley, IREGC president and chief operating officer. “His record of creating long-term sustainable value is a precursor to the work he will do and the value that I know he will provide to IREGC.”

Erik Peckmann has been promoted from financial analyst to manager of IREGC’s new financial-planning and analysis department. In this role, he’ll leverage historical data to project future results and provide nuanced predictions and analytics that’ll help guide the company. Peckmann will also help the operations team with revenue management.

“Since joining IREGC in January 2020, Erik has been instrumental in moving many of our teams forward in our growth journey,” Fritsche said. “With his growing knowledge of our industry, thoughtfulness and dedication, I am confident that Erik will grow his success in approaching acquisitions to the broader IREGC platform, keeping us well-positioned to leverage and scale our future growth.”

IREGC recently announced that it is closing its brokerage-services division to focus on solely on expanding its Moove In portfolio. Since 1998, the company has brokered more than $1 billion in sales for clients through offices in Connecticut, Georgia and Pennsylvania. To prepare for the transition, it recently relocated its headquarters in York, Pennsylvania, and named Christopher Riley as president and chief operating officer. The company still operates its Investment Real Estate Construction development division.

Moove In operates more than 60 facilities in Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania.
