Focused and driven executive will help position smart parking company for sustained growth and expansion into new markets
Munich, Germany, and Lake Forest, Ill., Oct. 16, 2019 — Cleverciti Systems, a leader in comprehensive, high-tech solutions for off-street and on-street smart parking, has appointed David Parker as its Chief Operating Officer. Parker will leverage his more than 15 years of experience scaling technology businesses globally to solidify Cleverciti’s leadership position in the market further. As COO, Parker will report to Cleverciti CEO and Founder Thomas Hohenacker.
“When I met the Cleverciti team, I was immediately struck by their passion for improving quality of life by reducing pollution and traffic,” said Parker. “Approximately 30% of traffic in cities is the result of a parking search, which can be eliminated largely through the adoption of Cleverciti’s platform. Climate change is the crisis of our time, and we need solutions like Cleverciti to reduce emissions dramatically. As the clear technology leader in the smart parking industry, Cleverciti is poised for explosive growth, and I am thrilled to partner with Thomas, Konrad, and the entire world-class team to make this a reality.”
Parker comes to Cleverciti from Cox Automotive, where he served as COO of Modix, the leading global automotive digital marketing solution. At Modix, he led the expansion of the business across more than 60 countries. Throughout his career, Parker has held senior-level roles and advisory positions with a wide range of high-growth tech businesses, including Dealer.com, Dealertrack, BentoBox, and Kusshi. He holds MBAs from Columbia University and London Business School and a B.S. in Information Technology from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
“David’s role is one of utmost importance as we scale our the company,” said Thomas Hohenacker, Founder and CEO, Cleverciti. “He is a strong senior leader who brings deep expertise in leading operations, marketing, and sales for high-growth global technology businesses like ours. With his guidance, Cleverciti can capitalize on new opportunities and achieve our strategic goals.”
