Apple Self Storage is pleased to announce that David Allan has purchased a 25% ownership stake in the company and has assumed the role of Vice President of Development.

I’m thrilled and humbled to have the opportunity to become a partner in what I consider to be the best self storage company in Canada. - David Allan

David Allan, the son of founder Phil Allan and nephew of founders Jeff and Scott Allan, is thrilled to have the opportunity to be the second generation of Allan's in the business. He looks forward to continuing to build on the company’s excellent reputation as the best managed self storage facilities in Canada and continue to grow the company’s footprint.

After David graduated from Western University in 2006 with degrees in psychology and philosophy, he pursued a career in sales at Xerox. Following several years of success, David left to try his hand at entrepreneurship and started a series of small businesses in the insurance service and catastrophic loss reduction industry. In 2012, he joined Apple Self Storage in a business development role where he was directly responsible for growing the portfolio from 13 facilities to 31 owned and managed facilities in only 4 years.

“Apple Self Storage is a company where family matters” says David Allan. "It’s a company where we all feel like family and it’s that attitude that has helped us attract and retain some of the best employees in all of self storage. I’m thrilled and humbled to have the opportunity to become a partner in what I consider to be the best self storage company in Canada.”

Apple Self Storage plans to continue a controlled growth pattern as well as focusing on developing its already strong third party management business. “Apple Self Storage is probably the best self storage manager in Canada right now. We provide high value to owners who see the benefit of long term ownership in their properties. We’re pretty happy to be able to have David join us for the long haul and continue to add value to what we’re doing,” says David’s father Phil. “David cares about what he does and he’s going to be a great asset for making sure this company stays strong for the coming decades. It’s really exciting stuff”. Third Party Management continues to generate attention and popularity in Canada as the value of professional management continues to be recognized by owners and lenders alike.
