Tampa, FL-based self-storage advisory firm BayView Advisors has opened an office in Cleveland, OH, that will serve clients in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions.

Ryan Clark (pictured at top) has been hired as senior vice president in charge of the new office.

“We are very excited to be able to better serve owners in the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic areas by having a local representative focused on these regions,” said Jay Crotty, managing partner of BayView.

Crotty told The SpareFoot Storage Beat in March that the company planned to open several offices across the country this year.

“Storage is really a regional and national business; it isn’t enough for us to focus on just transactions in Tampa,” Crotty said.

Before joining BayView, Clark worked was an attorney representing insurance companies, real estate developers, commercial landlords and construction companies. Clark earned his law degree from the University of Cincinnati.
