CEO and Founder
Ed began his career in the parking business as a part-time parking cashier at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City for a large regional parking garage company while attending college. Over the next forty plus years, Ed held various progressive positions in operations, business development, sales and parking consulting.
Ed spent his first fifteen years in parking operations for regional and national parking management companies. During this time, Ed worked in parking operations with full responsibility for profit and loss, acquisitions, claims, human resources, day-to-day oversight of existing facility operations and new facility acquisitions. Ed provided business planning and consulting for new cities, along with parking lot design, management and preparation of lease proposals and financial projections.
Over the next fifteen years, Ed represented several manufacturers of parking access and revenue control systems (PARCS) in various capacities. He worked for local dealers as well as national and international manufacturers for whom he designed, selected and reviewed parking access and revenue control systems. Ed has gained first-hand knowledge of PARCS from both the end-user and manufacturer’s point of view. His extensive knowledge of PARCS is broad, ranging from simple, hand-issued parking tickets to complex, fully automated systems in large, mixed-use buildings or airports.
Over the next eight years, Ed utilized his unique and extensive experience while working for one of the world’s largest parking consulting companies. As a parking consultant, he provided specialized parking management and technology consulting services to a wide range of clients on hundreds of projects. Key projects during his tenure include a large international airport PARCS design, specifications, and construction administration for a system with over eighty lanes of equipment; campus-wide wayfinding/parking guidance system for a large international pharmaceutical company; automated parking guidance system (APGS) recommendations for a top-secret government compound and many other diverse projects.
In 2016 Ed formed DEC Parking Associates to continue providing these services and other specialized consulting services to our clients. DEC provides our consulting services directly to our clients and we regularly provide our consulting services as sub-consultants to larger parking consulting companies to complement their project team.
Ed brings highly technical skillsets with experience in designing, specifying, RFP process management, and construction administrative services for a very diverse selection of PARCS and has a thorough understanding of the communications infrastructure required to support these systems.
