Following a year of more than 50 storage facility acquisitions, Mini Mall Storage Properties announced today the recent appointment of William Harlan as Director of Acquisitions to support the company’s continued growth strategy across North America.
With over 10 years of experience across the technology space and half of that time focused on providing software to self-storage owners at G5, a predictive SaaS technology platform for real estate marketers, Harlan will use his knowledge to help Mini Mall enhance predictability in the buying and selling process.
“I’m excited about the rapid growth trajectory that Mini Mall Storage is on and the solid foundation that has already been set,” says William Harlan. “I have always had an interest in commercial real estate and I see tremendous opportunity to enhance our U.S. portfolio and help our company become a leader in the industry.”
As Mini Mall Storage places a higher focus on implementing trusted and unique technologies to the self-storage industry, Harlan’s experience directly supports this ongoing effort. “With our strong team and continued plan to use and deploy new technologies within the class B and C self-storage space across the U.S., William’s background in tech and his industry contacts will help us elevate our brand and improve our customer experience,” says Raheem Amer, President of U.S. Operations.
By adding new talent to the acquisition team, the company is looking to organically foster more relationships with prospective acquisitions. “Our current acquisition approach is weighted heavily on broker deals, but those can often be costly,” says Harlan. “Given our track record of closing deals quickly and easily, I see an opportunity in garnering interest in off-market deals and developing better processes for our team to attract new sellers.”
