Janet Colley Morse

Vice President, Dupuy Storage


As a fourth-generation representative of the family business, Janet Colley Morse grew up looking, listening and learning how to be a successful business leader.

Since her early days in customer service, she’s worked through nearly every facet of operations at Dupuy Storage, developing an intimate understanding and appreciation of her industry. She’s learned the ropes of warehousing, transportation and new business recruitment, and as Vice President, Colley has now turned her sights to innovation. In fact, she became instrumental in developing the Container Examination Station in New Orleans alongside the local office of Customs and Border Protection.

The best part, she says, is that she gets to work side-by-side with the same people who knew her as a child, including her dad. Even now, they continue to challenge her as both an individual and as a professional.

“The people I work with on a daily basis make coming to work fun and challenging. Even on bad days, I always laugh,” Colley says. “The relationships I’ve developed are truly priceless. Ultimately, these relationships are the central focus of business. Remaining empathetic and treating everyone I meet with respect and dignity….I take great pride in that.”

Outside of work, Colley is a dedicated mother and keeps her love of the arts alive as a part-time dance teacher. It might sound like an impossible workload, but Colley wouldn’t have it any other way.

“At the end of the day, I try to remain humble and grateful. Find balance and breathe, because our personal well being is critical to professional success. Empathy, grace and a few minutes of quiet time all go a very long way.”
