Argus News
Argus is saddened to announce the passing of company founder and self-storage industry pioneer Michael McCune.  Mike passed away on April 5, 2014 at the age of 68. 

Mike founded the Argus Self Storage Sales Network in 1994 to provide self-storage owners with an organized market for buying and selling properties. Mike felt that self-storage represented a much better investment opportunity for real estate investors than was being perceived by the market, and his goal was to educate investors and self-storage professionals about the opportunity that existed within the industry. 

Mike's legacy extends beyond the self-storage industry as he was a tireless volunteer for a number of organizations that provided clean drinking water, education and economic development in underprivileged areas all over the world. He was a man who cared deeply about others and his absence will be felt by countless friends, colleagues and the many lives he touched.
