Find Local Storage (FLS), a consortium of self-storage owners who operate an online facility directory, has hired Michelle Jordan as executive director. She’ll be responsible for driving business expansion and new-product development, as well as helping the company continue to identify and connect with partners to increase revenue and profit for its members.
“Michelle brings over 25 years of experience in management, finance and marketing, making her a tremendous asset to Find Local Storage,” said Ian Burnstein, co-founder and president of the Storage Business Owners Association LLC and an FLS managing partner. “As we continue to focus on providing quality leads and rentals to our growing member base, it was imperative to add the executive director position. Michelle will bring energy and vision to Find Local Storage.”
A graduate of St. Edwards University, Jordan has served as CEO of the Texas Emergency Services Retirement System, controller for marketing firm Go Local Interactive, and chief financial officer for the Texas Department of Agriculture. As a business owner, she has provided website-development, bookkeeping and recruiting services, and assisted with the administration duties for a family-owned storage company.
“Find Local Storage has a strong reputation as a company that empowers self-storage owners,” Jordan said. “I am honored to be a part of the company and believe my unique background will help [FLS] expand its opportunities in the market. I look forward to playing a role in its continued growth.”
Launched in 2013, FLS offers a lead-generation platform that generated more than 40,000 calls for its member facilities last year, according to a press release.
