We are pleased to announce that our CEO, Robin Greenwood, has won the highly contested ‘Extraordinary Achievement Award’ at the 2019 FEDESSA Awards ceremony which was held in London last night. Robin received the award due to his 30 years of dedication and service to the UK self storage industry.

- Facility of the Year Award

Robin is arguably the most experienced individual in the UK self storage industry with a career spanning 30 years. During this time he has worked with and led a number of leading UK self storage companies.
He has shown complete dedication to the self storage industry by serving two terms of six years each with the Self Storage Association of the UK as Treasurer. In fact, he was involved in the hiring of Rennie Schafer who was the first professional to lead the SSA.
We asked Robin what he loves most about the self storage industry. “The diversity of the job and the people are hands down the two elements which have kept me in this industry for these past 30 years. Self Storage has developed in the UK and abroad over the past three decades and it’s been a fun ride to see it move from humble beginnings to the professional outfit we see today. Self storage is for everyone, whether you are a student, a family or any type of business, and because of this we continue to see the industry grow and expand across the UK.” said Robin.
The entire Storage King team congratulates Robin on this excellent achievement.
