Meet Our Team

At the head of the Personal Mini Storage team is a kangaroo with an attitude. Think we're kidding? Meet Persy, mascot of the Personal Mini Storage family. Persy, our team kangaroo, traded the open spaces of the Australian outback for the Sunshine State, and we think our kicking kangaroo with the golden gloves symbolizes the heart of Personal Mini Storage. Who knows more about personal storage than a kangaroo?

Persy's pouch symbolizes secure extra room with a family attitude. The gloves are all about knocking the competition out of the ring-our muscle is courteous service, and we dominate the Central Florida self storage scene round after round.

Persy and the rest of the Personal Mini Storage family began with Stan and Ron Shader. In 1982, the Shader Brothers built their first self storage location on John Young Parkway in Orlando, Florida. In just three years time, the Shader Brothers' reputation yielded several more central Florida locations. The brothers knew their vision meant continued growth, and in planning for that growth, they formed Shader Brothers Corporation in 1984.

Today the family business is operated by Laurie and Marc Smith, the next generation of the Personal Mini Storage family. Like a strong family, we're proud of what we've accomplished together, but we're not satisfied to rest on our success.
