London, 12/12/2023 – Engage Management Services, a leading player in the Self Storage industry with combined industry experience of over 90 years, is pleased to announce a strategic investment partnership with Pacific Investments, a distinguished multi-asset fund management group.

The partnership aims to increase the value of Engage’s clients’ businesses through operational efficiency and unlock new growth opportunities for the management services platform.
Engage Management Services CEO, Mark van Adrichem, expressed enthusiasm about the partnership, stating, “It has been an interesting year, with over a million sqft of self storage space developed since our inception and now we are able to announce our partnership with the Pacific Investment team; it really is a testament to the potential within our business and opportunities within our sector. A great step forward for the business and the team. From the outset we have been determined to deliver first class management services to the Self Storage sector and through this partnership with Pacific we can continue to build upon our foundations that have been laid down over the last 15 years. Our sector continues to be one of opportunity and we look forward to rolling out our operational Self Storage platform delivering for our clients and embracing the next 15 years!”
