Storage Asset Management (SAM), a property-management and consulting firm for the self-storage industry, was named among the top 100 “Best Places to Work in PA” for 2020 and closed out the year by making more than $15,000 in charitable donations, according to a press release.
In an annual survey conducted by the “Central Penn Business Journal” and “Lehigh Valley Business,” SAM ranked No. 18 out of 27 businesses in the “Large Employer” category designated for companies with at least 250 employees. The annual poll is designed to identify and recognize Pennsylvania’s “best” employers and provide organizations with employee feedback, according to the initiative’s website. In 2020, it also ranked 43 small companies with 15 to 99 employees and 30 mid-sized businesses with 100 to 249 employees.
“We are thrilled and humbled to be named a ‘best places to work’ company in PA,” said SAM CEO Alyssa Quill.
SAM’s end-of-year giving initiatives included a corporate partnership in November and December with the Salvation Army. Self-storage facilities managed by the firm served as monetary-donation points for the charity’s “Rescue Christmas” program, which assists community members with holiday gifts, meals and monetary needs. SAM properties collected more than $8,400 for the nonprofit, the release stated.
In October, SAM properties donated more than $3,500 to the Susan G. Komen foundation, which specializes in breast-cancer advocacy, education, health services, research and social support programs in the United States. Through a matching program, it donated a total of $7,051 to the nonprofit, with which it has worked for six years.
“The fourth quarter really showed the implementation of SAM’s core values,” Quill said. “We are proud at our company’s and employees’ commitment to charitable organizations and being positive impacts in the communities in which we operate.”
Founded in 2010 and based in York, Pa., SAM oversees 279 storage facilities under 68 brands in 31 states. Its managed portfolio comprises more than 17 million square feet.
