Closetbox, full-service storage industry leader

Sean Sutherland joins Closetbox as Director of Engineering after serving in engineering leadership roles at ReadyTalk, Pearson and the Harris Corporation. Sutherland has managed teams both domestically, as well as in Europe, Russia, and Asia. Recently he has focused on developing local teams and fostering progressive engineering cultures to drive teams to higher levels of autonomy.

Sutherland’s hire comes as Closetbox strengthens its focus on technology and efficiency in serving customers across the nation. For the cost of a traditional self-storage unit, Closetbox provides full-service storage that includes professional storage movers picking up belongings from clients’ homes and on-demand return delivery.

Closetbox creates additional convenience for its clients through its web and mobile offerings. Clients have the ability to manage their stored belongings, pickups and deliveries.

Closetbox is the only full-service storage company that uses an asset-light, shared economy model by using excess capacity in the existing logistics network to pick up and deliver storage. Because of this model, Closetbox is the only company to truly disrupt self-storage by profitably offering full-service storage at the cost of self-storage.

Sutherland’s hiring is another Closetbox commitment to onboarding seasoned startup professionals. In August, former ReadyTalk Chief Operating Officer Barb Stevens was named Closetbox’s Chief Operating Officer following Readytalk’s successful exit. Former Clarity Digital Group VP of Product, ShopAtHome Digital Marketing Director and founding editor Travis Henry joined Closetbox in October to lead marketing.
