40 years ago, Chris Ramsey's parents purchased the Liedkie Moving & Storage Company, thrusting him into the business as a child. Now the CEO of this 120 year old company, Chris has worked his way up from being a mover to a moving salesman and now all the way up to CEO. He even remembers the times when the school bus would drop him off at the warehouse rather than his house. His dedication and tenacity are obvious key aspects of his commitment to this field of work, which he inherits from his parents. He explains how his father started the same way, working first as a mover, and then moving his way up in the company. Many years after Chris' family became the owners of Liedkie Moving, Chris created A Metro, a company which specializes in climate-controlled self-storage. Since moving goes hand-in-hand with storage, this undertaking was a no brainer for go-getter Chris.Despite challenges like everchanging rules and regulations and the labor-intensive work of moving, Chris foresees both companies continuing to grow and flourish. Currently, A Metro has 22 locations, but in ten years time, he anticipates 100 locations all up and down the East coast. With Liedkie holding steady at 100+ employees and A Metro around 50 employees, Chris is proud that both companies are continuously able to help local families during one of the "top three most stressful times" of their lives (moving). He is especially happy to be doing business in the Capital Region, for which he praises as "underrated" for its community and variety of local entrepreneurs. He speaks on the various networking opportunities afforded to him by working in this bustling (but not too busy) area. Not only that, but he enjoys using his companies for good by partnering with and donating to charity organizations like Toys for Tots.Chris expresses his admiration for his profession, saying, "I love this stuff, it's fun for me. It can be stressful but I'm ready for it".Chris Ramsey is a CEO You Should Know!
