2017 Year in Review

2017 has quickly come to an end and we must say a lot has happened in the past 12 months for our employees – everything from engagements to grandbabies. To be exact, there was one engagement, one wedding, four babies, and two grandbabies. All of us at Storage Solutions have been thrilled, so we thought we would share the excitement!

The engagement. Nick Nigro proposed to his girlfriend, Courtney, of 3 years this past July. They were on a family vacation with Nick’s family in Michigan, when he decided to pop the question. Congratulations, Nick!

The wedding. On October 22nd, Carl Greeno watched his wife, Erin, walk down the aisle. The wedding was at Mustard Seed Gardens in Noblesville, IN. Carl and Erin had dated for 6 years before getting engaged. Carl, we wish you and Erin a lifetime full of love and happiness!

The babies. Andy and Nicole Goebes were given the opportunity to adopt a beautiful little girl, Riley, in May.

Billy and Jenna Powers welcomed their 2nd little one, Madison, into the world in June. She was 7lbs 15oz and 20 inches long. Kennedy, the big sister, has been over the moon with her little sister.

Nate and Jen Storey had their 3rd child this year. Samuel was born in September weighing 8lbs 6 oz. and 21.5 inches long.

Finally, Dan and Becky Storey also welcomed their 3rd bundle of joy to the family this year. Luca was born in November weighing in at 8lbs 2 oz. and 20.25 inches. 

The grandbabies. Tim Fonderoli gained his 4th grandchild in February and Jack Fritsche welcomed his 5th grandchild in September. Both Tim and Jack enjoy spending time with their grandchildren and watching them grow.

Q3 Employees of the Quarter

Congrats to Employees of the Quarter: Kip & Serafin!

As the weather starts to cool off, we would like to extend huge congratulations to our employees of Q3, Kip Lacy and Serafin Rodriguez! Their outstanding work and achievements are what make Storage Solutions such a great company!

Kip Lacy, Installation Project Manager

Kip joined SSI in January of 2017 as the newest member of our WSI installation team. As one of the leaders of the WSI team, Kip has proven to be an invaluable member of Storage Solutions. Kip has proven time and time again that he is willing to go above and beyond to make sure projects go off without a hitch.

In his downtime, Kip likes to spend time with his wife, two daughters, and his Boston Terrier, Frenchie. You can also find Kip outdoors, traveling or eating Indian food. Even though he sports his Michigan Wolverines hat, he says that he is open to supporting any college team.

Serafin Rodriguez, WSI Crew Leader

Our other employee of the quarter also comes from the WSI team. Serafin Rodriguez is a Crew Leader that has been with SSI since 2012. Serafin stepped up when we needed him most, and we couldn’t be more proud. When asked to become a new crew leader in August, Serafin jumped on the opportunity and has flourished in his new role. As a Crew Leader, Serafin demonstrates on a daily basis why he is such a strong leader and a great employee.

While he’s not at work, Serafin says that he likes to relax and spend some quality time with his family.

Above all, Storage Solutions loves to recognize our employees for their determination, so thank you to Kip and Serafin for their outstanding work!

New Employee Spotlight: Amanda Becker

We’re nine months into 2017 has been a very busy year for all of us here at Storage Solutions, but we are not complaining.

fall sports coaches

SSI Recognizes Our Fall Sports Coaches!

You can slowly feel the changes of fall starting to creep in with the cooler morning and evening air, shorter days, pumpkin flavors popping up everywhere, and of course, fall sports! With that, we wanted to take a chance to highlight SSI’s own fall sports coaches!

First, we have Dustin Sherer, who is currently the Co-Offensive Coordinator, Quarterbacks coach, and JV coach at Tipton High School in Tipton, IN. According to Dustin, “Coaching football at the high school level has always been a dream of mine and I am very fortunate that Storage Solutions has let me pursue that opportunity.  Our team has the chance to be very successful this year led by a strong Junior and Senior class. We have opened the season with two impressive wins but now jump into the strength of our schedule with very good competition.”

In addition to Dustin coaching the Tipton Blue Devils, we also have Heather Hutton coaching Varsity and JV cheerleading for the Frankton High School squad in Frankton, IN. You might remember us mentioning Heather’s squad getting the chance to cheer their basketball team on to a State Championship earlier this year at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse. Her squad is still carrying that excitement with them and has had a great start to the season. They expect a decent year for the Eagle football team, which has started the season 1-1, including an impressive 87-0 home opener.

Next, from our Kansas City office, Eric McDonald is in his fourth year as the Assistant Coach for the Northland Chargers 5th and 6th grade tackle football team. Eric coached the Chargers to 2 (2015 & 2016) North Suburban Youth Football League Super Bowl championships! He hopes to continue his success with the team this coming season. It’s fitting that our VP of Business Strategy also makes a great coach.

Finally, we’d like to also mention Michelle Coleman’s husband Rich, who is the Head Varsity Volleyball coach for Zionsville High School. For Michelle, this means a lot of green and white and getting to support and cheer on a sport she is very passionate about! Currently, Rich’s team sits at 8-0, beating some of their top competitors already this season.

All four teams seem to have a great start so far, and we are looking forward to seeing what the rest of the season will hold for all of our SSI coaches!
