Manhattan Mini Storage’s Jon Dario Joins SSA Executive Course Staff

ALEXANDRIA, VA — The Self Storage Association (SSA) announced today that it will welcome Manhattan Mini Storage President Jon Dario as an instructor of its popular Valuation & Acquisition Course, an executive-level program offered twice a year to SSA members. Dario, who joins veteran instructor Jeff Humphrey of the Bay Area’s Devon Self Storage, will mentor participants beginning October 29-31 at the Embassy Suites San Diego Bay in Southern California.


For nearly a decade, hundreds of owners and employees within the self storage community have benefited from the deep immersion SSA Valuation & Acquisition Course, which provides unapparelled content in deal-making analysis and operational management, encouraging measured, smart decisions within the industry. Among the elements covered in the course are facility acquisition, financing, property taxes, portfolio management and asset valuation.


“The national Self Storage Association is excited to bring the considerable talents of Jon Dario to the faculty of this executive-level course,” said Tim Dietz, SSA president & CEO. “We want to thank Bob Francis, who is retiring from the V&A course, having contributed tremendously to the program since 2011. Moving forward, we expect Jon and Jeff will make up a uniquely qualified team that will benefit SSA members for many years to come.”


Dario, who is also chairman of the New York SSA, oversees operations for the Manhattan Mini Storage portfolio, all based in The Big Apple. In addition to his self storage expertise, he brings a diverse background of more than 30 years in retail businesses, including Macy’s, Gap, Bank of America and Travelex. Dario has also published three organizational management books. 


Humphrey has been with Devon Self Storage for the past 28 years and oversees the company’s asset management efforts. He is responsible for facility analysis, investor questions, building financial models, underwriting acquisitions and more.
