We understood the dynamics of moving, storage, and the needs associated with that kind of household turmoil

Steve Wilson, managing partner of Hide-Away Storage in Sarasota, FL, and Bill Kenney of All American Self Storage in California were inducted into the Self Storage Association’s Hall of Fame at the Association’s fall conference in Las Vegas this month. They are the 23rd and 24th self storage operators to receive the honor.

Wilson began developing self storage properties in 1977, after spending 15 years as a foreign correspondent, eventually living and working in Japan for the Associated Press. Wilson said that he learned to appreciate the need for storage because he relocated 13 times in 15 years while working as a journalist.

“We understood the dynamics of moving, storage, and the needs associated with that kind of household turmoil,” Wilson told the SSA Globe magazine in an article featuring him and Kenney.

Only six years after developing the first Hide-Away Storage in Bradenton, Florida, Wilson became the president of the Self Storage Association, helping to guide and build the Association through its early formative years.

In addition to his participation with the Self Storage Association (, Wilson is also active locally as an elder in his church and as the president of the Community Coalition on Homelessness in Manatee County.
