Dennis Mastie Sr. is a family man, military veteran, former police officer, and entrepreneur.
Before Dennis became involved in the self storage industry in 1985, he served our country in the Vietnam War in the Navy with two tours of duty on the aircraft carrier USS Hancock. In 1969 Dennis was honorably discharged from the Navy and moved to Northern Virginia. When he arrived in Virginia, he joined the Alexandria City Police Department, where he served his community for a better part of 10 years.
Dennis has been involved in the storage industry since 1985. Over the now 31 years he has been working in storage he has owned 15 different storage facilities, so its safe to say he has a strong grasp on what it takes to run a successful, safe, clean, and well managed facility. Telegraph and Backlick were build simultaneously between 2000 and 2002, with both properties opening in 2002. Dennis hired his son, Dennis Jr., to run the Telegraph location in 2010 and Bob’s daughter Heather started working for both Backlick and Telegraph in 2013. After seeing that their family has what it takes to uphold their values, Dennis and Bob founded Storage Partners LLC in 2015 to allow Dennis Jr., Heather, and Backlick’s manager Mark to take over the overall management of both facilities.
