SSA Promotes Timothy J. Dietz To Chief Operating Officer

Self Storage Association (SSA) President & CEO Michael T.Scanlon, Jr., today

announced that Sr. VP of Government Relations Timothy J. Dietz, CAE, has

been promoted to the position of chief operating officer (COO) effective

immediately. Scanlon said Dietz will take on additional executive responsibilities

while continuing to manage advocacy duties for the SSA and its 5,500 members

throughout 2015.

Scanlon, who previously announced his intent to retire this September, said the

organizational adjustments will ensure continuity of administrative coordination

during the transition process. Dietz joined the organization in 2004 and has

filled various executive functions, most recently overseeing lobbying activities

nationwide that have significantly improved the business arena for the 48,000-

plus property real estate sector.

“I have had the opportunity to work with Tim Dietz for many years, and as I look

toward retirement this fall, I know for sure that he is prepared to take on

additional responsibilities that will take the SSA to the next level,” said Scanlon.

“As COO, Tim will become more involved in the Association’s decision-making

process and interactions with the board of directors. He has done great work in

managing our communications activities – including the development of SSA

Globe magazine into the largest-circulation publication in the self storage

industry – and leading our many lobbying successes in states throughout the

country.”

Prior to joining SSA, Dietz held government relations and communications roles

for various nationally-focused organizations, including chief lobbyist for

MACTEC, Inc., a Colorado-based environmental remediation government

contractor; and management of investor relations for Alexandria, Virginia-based

Metrocall, Inc. In 2011 the George Mason University graduate completed his

Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation through ASAE, the Center for

Association Leadership, which is based in Washington, D.C.

“Over the past decade, Mike Scanlon has overseen tremendous progress in the

development of the national Self Storage Association (SSA), an organization that

represents a still-young yet robust real estate segment,” said Dietz. “Under his

leadership, this organization has consistently provided improved benefits and

important representation for self storage owner/operators. I look forward to

working closely with Mike and the entire SSA team as we continue to provide our

members with a superb association experience.”
