Welcome, David Hauck!

As Storage Solutions continues to grow and hire talented new employees, we want to make sure that they are properly introduced to our customers, readers, friends, and partners. Why keep all this excitement to ourselves when David could soon be working with you!

David has six years of experience working for an international telecommunications corporation. He worked in the operations, supply chain, and logistics departments. He was the main point-of-contact for the company’s tier one customer accounts where he handled everything from order entry to material handling and delivery of their products to customer distribution centers. Before starting his career, David attended Wabash College for his undergrad where he thoroughly enjoyed his time in a small college setting.

David enjoys staying in shape and living an active lifestyle by playing golf, basketball and going to the gym. On the weekends you’ll find him either at a sporting event or enjoying a cold beverage and listening to live music with friends and family. He’s also an adventurer. David typically plans a trip to a lake house or ventures out of the country and will go to a place as close to the equator as possible!

What would you like to gain from working at Storage Solutions?

I believe Storage Solutions can offer me the opportunity to manage company projects and allocate company resources on a large scale to build lasting relationships with our customers and vendors. I am also hoping that bringing an outside perspective from a different industry will help SSI continue to build and improve its internal processes and procedures to help streamline business practices.

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!
