Our fantastic team has been working incredibly hard throughout what’s been a challenging 18 months for us all, individually and collectively as a business.
COVID has brought varying degrees of pressure on each and every one of our team – as a self storage business however, we have continued to work together to achieve success and improve customer experiences in ways we would never have thought possible in March last year.
As a result of our continued growth, along with our ambitious desire to further expand the business into new areas, strengthening our internal structures has become paramount.
To that end, we’re very pleased to announce two team members’ promotions…
Having taken ownership of blue self storage’s online systems, along with driving efficiency through the business using modern technology, Jamie Thomas is now Technical Manager.
As a ‘smart storage solution’ provider, our continued advancement in automated systems and new technologies is essential. Jamie has demonstrated his ability in this area and we know he will continue to implement the changes required to keep us at the forefront of the industry.
“I’m very thankful for the opportunity to enhance our customer experience through continuous design & delivery of lean & intelligent solutions.”
Having experienced unprecedented (yes, it’s that word again!) customer levels this year, the need for an organised self storage team with robust processes is vital to ensure that our customers continue to experience the high standards that you have come to expect.
In order to ensure this remains possible during our next stage of growth, Rhiannon Berry is now Storage Team Leader. Rhiannon’s leadership skills have become apparent as we have grown the storage team.
From adding new sites to onboarding (another buzzword!) new members of the team, Rhiannon’s attributes and efforts have ensured smooth change management with minimal disruption – and we know Rhiannon will continue to deliver as we grow.
“I’m really grateful for being recognised and being given this opportunity. I’m looking forward to continuing to work together, developing myself and the team in driving the business forward. I feel we’re on the cusp of something special at blue self storage and love being part of the journey!”
A record year of growth for blue self storage
The contribution of every single team member allowed us to expand blue self storage to include a brand new Cardiff storage site in Llanishen and a Newcastle storage site in Tyneside during 2020 and 2021 respectively.
Thanks to their support, we’ve also been able to invest in new technologies to make the customer experience even better.
We now have QR code entry and exit systems at our Llanishen site, allowing us to maintain high-security standards while reducing customer waiting times. There’s also a new phase of technology coming soon to blue self storage – more news on that soon!
“I want to thank and recognise each and every one of our collective team’s contributions to our recent accomplishments, and for their continuous diligence in ensuring our customers have the best storage experience possible.
“I feel we currently have the strongest teams that we’ve ever had. We have created a workforce that is a joy to be a part of, something that wouldn’t be possible without everyone’s effort and commitment. These new promotions are key to our business growth plan and we’re excited to enter the next phase of taking storage into the stratosphere with the best team possible.”
– Chris Bryan, Managing Director of blue self storage
