Tucker brings 17+ years of experience in parking industry to help ParkWhiz bolster sales operations
CHICAGO – Feb. 29, 2016 – Today at the Parking Industry Exhibition in Las Vegas, the nation’s largest on-demand parking app ParkWhiz has named industry veteran Todd Tucker as its new vice president of sales, as ParkWhiz continues its rapid expansion nationwide. In this newly created role, he will be charged with overseeing all of ParkWhiz’s sales operations.
“Todd is a seasoned industry executive whose expertise in parking operations makes him well equipped to not only meet but far exceed the needs of operators,” said Aashish Dalal, co-founder and CEO of ParkWhiz. “Todd shares our focus on being a great partner for operators. His command of the industry and experience building relationships make him the perfect addition for our team.”
Prior to joining ParkWhiz, Todd served with several national parking operators in various roles over his 17-year career, and rose through the ranks to the vice-president level. Most recently, he served as regional vice president of the Pacific Northwest region for Towne Park, overseeing approximately 70 locations in five states and over 1,100 employees. Prior to Towne Park, Todd worked for ABM Parking Services/System Parking Inc., based in Chicago, and served in a multitude of capacities such as Midwest regional manager, regional business development director and associate general counsel.
“ParkWhiz’s exceptional growth and innovative product makes it the No. 1 on-demand parking app in the nation,” Tucker said. “Aashish and the entire ParkWhiz team are committed to making parking a seamless experience for people. I share that vision and will strive to continue strengthening the overall ParkWhiz brand.”
Tucker’s appointment comes on the heels of ParkWhiz’s recent $24 million Series C funding and acquisition of New York City’s No. 1 parking app BestParking. The acquisition gives ParkWhiz the most comprehensive coverage in the country with more than 4,000 parking locations and more than 800,000 spaces in more than 50 major cities across the U.S.
In January, ParkWhiz also integrated with Ford’s new FordPass app, bringing the convenience of booking advanced parking to FordPass members. FordPass will feature ParkWhiz as one of its start-up companies providing a suite of transportation services, including smart parking.
