Storage King’s Robin Greenwood outlines the company’s expansion plans and the importance of customer service.

As the old saying goes, you never know what happens behind closed doors. And, but for the odd glimpse, Robin Greenwood, chief executive of Storage King, has little idea what the hundreds of units at the company’s 26 sites contain.
