Kennards Self Storage is a privately owned family business and has a long history for innovation and pioneering in the storage industry. The business started in 1973 after Neville Kennard noticed self storage in the USA. He subsequently built Australia's first storage spaces. Neville's son, Sam was appointed Managing Director in late 1994, which he continues today.
Under Sam's stewardship the family business has continued to grow and is the largest owner of self storage properties in Australia.
Sam's active hands-on role within the Team means working at Kennards Self Storage gives a mix of the warmth and humility of a family business while still having the career opportunities available of a large enterprise.
