Zach Savka

Welcome, Zach!

Zach Savka has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from the Kelly School of Business at Indiana University. Before coming to Storage Solutions, Zach worked at Sensory Technologies, a commercial audio/visual integrator. He worked there for 4.5 years, at which he gained valuable experience in multiple departments including inside sales, being an onsite technician,  assisting the purchasing department, accounts receivable, and helping train new employees.

In his new role at Storage Solutions as an Inside Sales Manager, Zach will be responsible for working closely with our customers to create solutions and ensure a smooth sales process.

Zach enjoys spending his time competing against his friends and family in any type of game, sport, or activity. However, he mainly plays baseball, golf, and basketball. If he’s not competing on a field or court, you’ll find him working on a project on his house. Naturally, being the sports fanatic he is, he’s also been an assistant varsity tennis coach at North Central High School. He has a passion for working with kids and coaching and believes that it keeps him young!

What are you most excited to do at Storage Solutions?

“At Storage Solutions, I am excited to be a part of a team/family. Being as competitive as I am, I want to sell as much as I can and show value to the company in many different ways. I would like to build a career here and help company growth for years to come.”

Michael joins the team as a new Inside Sales Manager. He brings 20 years of experience in sales and management. He started his sales career as a Store Manager for Ovation Audio Video in Lafayette, IN while attending Purdue University.

He’s worked in many different industries since then including, audio/video, dental technology, insurance, advertising, SAAS/software, and now material handling.

Michael grew up in Arcadia, IN and attended Hamilton Heights High School. He played the baritone and trombone from 5th thru 12th grade. Fun fact, he won the Louis Armstrong Jazz Award for the trombone while in high school.

In his free time, Michael enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. He also participates in coaching youth soccer and basketball; as well as listening to music.

What do you want to gain from working at Storage Solutions?

To learn about an industry and business that’s completely new to me, and help in any way I can to take advantage of what I perceive to be a quickly evolving market.

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.
