Corinn Altomare is co-founder of Hearthfire Holdings – a private equity firm focused on self storage, with a growing portfolio across the Northeast and MidAtlantic regions. Founded in 2012, Hearthfire began initially with multifamily assets, delivering average 23% IRR to investors in 5 full cycle multifamily investments. Hearthfire pivoted to self storage with a first acquisition in 2019, which recently went full cycle delivering 33% IRR to investors. Since that first investment, they have grown the storage portfolio to another 14 locations across 5 states, and have invested significantly in the systems and management team to support the growth. Corinn is a keynote speaker and thought leader on the self storage industry. She holds a Masters in Music Performance from the University of Southern California.
