PHOENIX, August 30, 2023 –Toy Storage Nation, the only organization dedicated solely to providing news, education and expertise for developing, owning, operating and investing in RV and boat storage businesses, has named Chris Koenig, President of Pacific Property Advisors as Advisory Board Chairman. He succeeds Terry Anderson, CEO and President of Tenant Property Protection, who has contributed to vast growth within the organization over the past year.
“We are extremely excited to have Chris Koenig step into this leadership role,” stated Toy Storage Nation President Amy Bix. “Chris has been a very active board member for two years, bringing both a fresh and personal perspective to Toy Storage Nation as a developer-operator and an analyst who can evaluate company strategies to lead business development and cash flow stability.”
Founding Advisory Board Member Bob Hayworth, CEO, President and Founder of Baja Construction Company, paid great respect to outgoing Chair Terry Anderson while acknowledging that the passing of the baton to Koenig will be a smooth transition.
“Like Terry, Chris has a wealth of experience to share with RV and boat storage business developers-operators-investors. Likewise, he is a sharp innovator in the industry and has the stealth and skills to take Toy Storage Nation to the next dimension of success,” says Hayworth.
Fellow Advisory Board member and longtime industry advisor Jim Chiswell echoed similar gratitude for Anderson’s guidance since Toy Storage Nation was founded more than two years ago.
“Like every trade association, it is not uncommon to see a change in leadership on the board of advisors,” begins Chiswell, managing partner at Chiswell & Associates and a highly revered self-storage–and now RV and boat storage–consultant for more than 40 years. “What is not common, however, is the leadership provided to our new organization by outgoing Chairman Terry Anderson, President/CEO of Tenant Property Protection, since Toy Storage Nation’s inception. I’d like to personally thank Terry for his commitment to helping to make Toy Storage Nation the voice of the RV and boat storage industry that it is today.”
Koenig brings invaluable discipline and experience to his new role as Advisory Board Chair. He sped through higher education studies at University of California, Davis, graduating the four-year bachelor’s in business program in three years while earning honors. Since then, he successfully developed retail and industrial properties in Napa Valley for Pacific Union Property Advisors LLC, before starting a property tax appeal business under a new company, Pacific Property Advisors Inc. Currently, he has developed, owns and is in the process of developing approximately $200 million in storage projects in California.
“I look forward to advancing the Class A RV Boat Storage business model and sharing my years of knowledge to those who are interested or new to this market,” stated Koenig. “Coming from the development/ownership side, I hope to offer unbiased and objective opinions on this asset class to our TSN audience.”
