About YLG

The Young Leaders Group recognises and supports youth in the industry and is open to owners of self storage businesses as well as those in management roles within a company. 

Currently there are 92 SSA UK Young Leaders and the aim of the group is for under 40’s within the sector to meet, network and share ideas.  By bringing together the future of our industry, we hope to help shape and take the UK industry to the next level.

Led by Paul Whittaker and Madeline Fahey, the group consists of young leaders from across the sector representing large, small, independent and supplier members.

The YLG is complimentary to join for members of the SSA UK and is open to multiple under 40’s from a company to join if they wish.  

As YLG meetings are held only once or twice a year, most networking is done on Slack our new communication platform where different streams of conversations and support take place either from individuals or from small groups within the YLG.  Slack members may reply as part of a stream or contact a person directly.  In addition, there is an area where members may make notes and gather points or ideas.  

The group regularly contributes articles for the SSA UK quarterly magazine, UNLOCKED and has produced video content for the wider SSA UK membership.
