Self Storage Association News
Attic Self Storage is delighted to welcome Rennie Schafer to the Self Storage Association of the United Kingdom (SSA UK). A Commercial Law and Mba graduate from Deakin University, Rennie spent 5yrs working as part of the team at the Australian Meat Industry Council before being head-hunted by the Self Storage Association of Australia.
As CEO of the SSA of Australia, Rennie grew the organisation to incorporate other countries in the region, forming the Self Storage Association of Australasia (SSAA). Rennie has grown the association over the course of nearly ten years, increasing the number of members as well as the scope and reach of the association, which now looks after a diverse range of member interests and acts as an resource for information on the industry for both outsiders and those operating within the industry.
We are excited about Rennie’s plans for growing the presence of the Self Storage Association of the United Kingdom (SSA UK) on our home turf, and expanding the voice of our industry. Frederic de Ryckman de Betz, Managing Director of Attic and a Director of the SSA, said “I am looking forward to working with Rennie, starting with the SSA and FEDESSA annual conference which will be held in London in 2013. These are exciting times for our industry.”
Rennie takes up where Rodney Walker CBE left off. Rodney has worked tirelessly for our industry over the past decade, and will continue his involvement with the industry at European level as CEO of FEDESSA, the Federation of European Self Storage Associations. Rodney’s retirement from a full time role with the SSA UK is well earned, and we wish him well as he looks to enjoy semi-retirement with his wife Sandy.
