Michael Haugh recently released- June 13 2014
Last fall, I joined the Memphis branch of a national CEO organization called Vistage that meets monthly. This group is a dozen+ CEO’s from different industries, each offering a different perspective on a variety of topics and issues. We also have some great speakers come to the group. I joined mainly because I have been in the self storage business for 20 years have recently felt that lack of exposure to other industries may be holding me and possibly us back from greater success. So as part of my personal goals, I wanted to learn more about what other industries are doing, what issues they have, how they are growing, etc. I am happy to report a lot of learning through Vistage, and some comfort that both self storage and property management are excellent businesses.
A few months ago, we held a leadership meeting in Memphis to revisit our mission statement and core values. The chairman of our Vistage Group lead us through a number of exercises to come up with our new mission and values, and I give the Vistage Group credit for encouraging us to revisit them. You can see what we came up with below. We feel our new mission encompasses what we are trying to accomplish at ASM. I truly believe everyone one of you is a partner of ours. ASM’s values will guide our future decision making. I know each of you embodies many of these values, which is why you are with us.
ASM Mission Statement:
Growing successful partnerships with our customers, team members and investors by delivering excellence in service.
