Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 04, 2011
Success in the storage industry isn't just about how much space you have to rent, or how many customers you facilitate. It's a competitive business that takes a great selection of services and the best people to deliver a premium experience to the client. For LifeStorage, Chicago self storage provider of home and business storage and office solutions, a great company knows great talent. Just ask Susan Powers, district trainer and manager of the Carpentersville LifeStorage facility, and recipient of SpareFoot.com's Manager of the Month award for July.
SpareFoot is a one-stop-shop site that offers the largest selection of storage units and storage companies with real-time pricing and availability. When Paul Menzel, manager of the Elgin LifeStorage facility, nominated Powers, SpareFoot took notice. Powers was selected for the award from multiple companies and nominees. Menzel decided to nominate Powers for more than her success in business, but for the her qualities as a person.
“She has great leadership skills and a willingness to help other people; great follow through with tenants and a great personal attitude,” Menzel said. “I chose Susan because although she has only been with the company a short amount of time, she knows exactly what LifeStorage wants in a manager and does what she needs to do to be a great role model for all new employees of our company.”
For Powers, the nomination was special: “It means so much to me to be a part of a team that felt highly enough about me and the job I am doing to nominate me for the award,” Powers said. As for winning, well, that was the proverbial icing on the cake.
“I feel honored to even be considered for the award. I would like to thank my wife and kiddos for supporting me and my team for their faith in me to train others that come on board. Thanks to my district manager Debbie for all that she has taught me in the business, and thanks to Paul for nominating me and contacting SpareFoot,” Powers said.
For Menzel, it was an easy decision and the sincerest form of peer recognition. “Susan is the type of employee that all other companies wish they could hire. She does what she is required to do as well as things she is not required or asked to do. She always goes above and beyond and you can always count on her when you need her help,” said Menzel.
