2018 marks Guardian Storage’s 31st year in business, and much of its continued growth and success can be attributed to Steven’s leadership. By consistently adhering to the core foundation of his business model, Steven has successfully led and grown Guardian Storage through recessions, price wars, and tough competition. His industry expertise, dedication to the company and development of a strong company culture has earned Guardian a spot in the Pittsburgh Business Times’ “Fastest Growing Private Companies” for nine of the last 10 years.
A core component of Guardian’s company culture is giving back to the communities in which they do business. “Guardian Cares” is a consistent and ongoing theme within the company that comes to life in a variety of ways. Each year, Guardian Storage hosts a variety of company-wide charitable events with groups like The Education Partnership, Pittsburgh Stands with Puerto Rico and Toys for Tots. Guardian’s property managers also regularly hold fundraisers and collection events for various community groups and individuals in need.
