The iStorage brand is a growing platform for NSA and currently manages over 200 stores across 25 states, comprised of facilities owned by our 2016 Joint Venture and our 2018 Joint Venture portfolios as well as the corporate-owned stores. The iStorage platform expands NSA’s scale and geographic presence across the United States. We expect the iStorage platform to continue to grow as we increase the amount of corporate-owned stores and continue to take advantage of joint venture opportunities. iStorage is currently managed by Steven Treadwell, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of NSA, and President - National Storage Affiliates Trust Management Company.
* The iStorage brand and management operation is wholly owned by NSA and is not a Participating Regional Operator (“PRO”).
