The Self Storage Science Executive Team
Owner, Denise Bowley
Denise Bowley began her career in 1993 as a Self Storage manager of a small facility in Lufkin, Texas. Over time, she supervised five expansion projects, increasing the net rentable square feet by 80,000. In 2001, she helped open a successful packing and shipping store. These two businesses work together to ensure Self Storage customers receive a full service experience. Denise is an investor in 13 Self Storage facilities and is the owner of Self Storage Science. She has proven her ability to maximize profits by using a methodical system to push rates and streamline expenses. She has experience in setting up and opening dozens of new facilities and was invited to present on this topic at a national Self Storage convention in Las Vegas, NV. She has attended several appraisal board meetings to reduce property tax valuations and has always received successful results. Denise has provided all of the content for our training program and enjoys watching managers succeed using our easy to implement techniques. She teaches managers how to provide excellent customer service within the boundaries of the lease. Managers learn “Moving is Stressful, Self Storage Shouldn’t Be.” She has conducted thousands of facility audits and has learned what to look for while on site. Denise has done and seen it all. She believes both her understanding as an owner, and her previous management experience give her a unique business perspective.
