Bryant has 13 years of experience in the moving and self-storage industry.  She spent four years managing storage operations and seven years analyzing storage markets for ground-up development, conversion construction, and acquisitions, resulting in more than 3.5 million square feet of rentable storage in the U.S. and Canada.  Bryant is a graduate of the University of Arizona.

Perez brings 19 years of experience in engineering, land development and design, including five years in the moving and self-storage industry. During her time at the firm, she was involved in pre-construction services for new self-storage facilities. Between 2017 and April of 2022, she participated in more than 200 due diligence/feasibility studies, more than 70 tenant improvement projects, and 40-plus ground-up projects with an approximate construction value of $500 million.  Perez holds a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Rutgers University and a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Arizona State University.
