SEATTLE-Shurgard Storage Centers Inc. has tapped new employee Dev Ghose to the position of executive vice president and chief financial officer. Ghose, who joined the company in June, now succeeds company president Dave Grant, who has been serving as interim CFO.Dev Ghose is a CPA, who from 1986 and 2003, was part of the executive leadership of Health Care Property Investors, a public REIT. Ghose began his tenure at HCPI as vice president and controller and worked his way up to senior vice president of finance and treasurer. Prior to HCPI he worked with Price Waterhouse in the US as audit manager and with KPMG in the United Kingdom, responsible for diversified manufacturing and service companies. Between 2003 and June 2004 when he joined Shurgard, Ghose was a financial service partner with Tatum Partners. The search for a new CFO began in February, after CFO Harrell Beck was appointed to a newly created position, executive vice president and chief investment officer. Also that month, the company announced the appointment of Rod Pierson, previously SVP/CFO of Safeco Corp., as interim chief accounting officer.The management changes followed a review by its board of directors in light of the new Sarbanes-Oxley requirements and in the wake of the November resignation of its auditor, Deloitte & Touche LLP. PricewaterhouseCoopers accepted an invitation to become the company’s new auditor in January, after the management changes had been decided but before they had been announced.
