Storage Shield welcomes Damon Emerson as CEO and Partner


Houston, Texas, January 19, 2022 – A Houston, Texas-based tenant protection plan company, Storage Shield, is proud to announce the addition of Damon Emerson as CEO and Partner.

Damon will be responsible for strategic operational leadership of the company’s short- and long-term strategies, high-level policy decisions, and driving profitability, as well as communication with the board. Damon’s 25 years of insurance sales, customer service, and training experience have provided a solid foundation for his current position as CEO of Storage Shield. 

His self-storage journey began over 14 years ago with the creation of a Network Program for U-Store-It which was rebranded as CubeSmart. Most recently, he served as Sales Director for the Northeast Region of the Insurance Division of Storable, StorSmart/Bader Insurance. 

Damon’s dedication to the self-storage industry has led to his current role as a board member for the Pennsylvania Self-Storage Association. During his tenure with the Connecticut Self Storage Association, he was instrumental in the creation of the Northeast Self Storage Association, the first multi-state association serving the New England Region. He is planning to continue his relationship with the NeSSA in 2022.

Damon notes, “I’m excited to be joining the Storage Shield team. I look forward to working with this dynamic, professional, and passionate group of people and implementing an already best in class protection plan that provides top level service to both storage owners and their customers.”

“Damon’s experience in insurance and self-storage, as well as his passion for those industries, makes him the ideal person to lead Storage Shield’s growth and development,” states John Manes, Pinnacle Storage Properties Partner and CEO. “We are thrilled to have him as a partner and look forward to having him leading the company.”
