Greg Maxey


Greg Maxey

I received word this morning that Greg Maxey passed away Saturday at a hospital in Annapolis, MD.

I had never formally met Greg Maxey, but I heard from many through the years of the great work he did for Central Parking, both in the DC area and as head of their European Operations. He recently joined One Parking as a partner, bringing his 30 years or parking management experience to the company.

From his bio at One Parking:

During his time with Central, Greg undertook various roles in 12 states, as well as internationally. Greg spent time in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, where he took on the challenging role of establishing and developing the European arm of Central, opening locations in Greece, Spain, Poland, Germany, Switzerland, The Czech Republic and Hungary. He became the European Managing Director, overseeing all the company's on and off-street operations both on the Continent and in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Included in his responsibilities were The Messe Turm, located in Frankfurt am Main, Heathrow International Airport, Athens International Airport, The Cities of Oxford, Dublin and Edinburgh On-Street Enforcement contacts as well as approximately 150 other locations. Upon returning to the Washington, DC area, he was instrumental in leading the restructuring and expansion of the Washington, DC area. Greg attended The University of Tulsa where he studied Business Administration.

Greg is survived by his mother, his two brothers, Lance and Brad, and his partner Walter.  Services for Greg will be held on Thursday October 21st at Fellows, Helfenbein and Newman Funeral Home, P.A. in Annapolis Maryland.  Details for the service can be found on their website at  There is also an electronic guest book which can be signed for friends that would like to share their thoughts about Greg but are unable to attend the services.

  1. Greg was a special man. He changed countless lives by simply giving people an opportunity to prove themselves. His legacy will go on for years as some of his prodigies are this industry’s youngest and brightest. He will be sadly missed. Just like I said of Bobby Cox the other day, ” he played the game right, and demanded the same from his players”.
    Thank you Greg for all that you have done for us.

  2. Greg was a former colleague, competitor and occasional lunch
    partner, who enjoyed food, grog and overall a nice guy.

  3. Greg was a friend and colleague at Central Parking. I worked for Greg in DC for a short time before he was asked to move to Europe and learned so much from that beautiful mind. By far the best parking mind I have yet to encounter.
    Greg’s sense of humor and love for the finer things in life is what really sticks out in my mind.
    Lets all toast Greg this evening with a fine scotch or bourbon.
    Cheers Greg and RIP.

  4. Thank you for everyones love for Greg, Greg equally loved the parking industry and all the relationships he built along the way.
    Not many people can say that “you knew where you stood with Greg”!

  5. Greg was a friend, colleague and mentor. I worked for Greg for six years and he made every minute an experience with his unique sense of humor, his style of motivation and his unbelievable knowledge of the parking industry. Greg loved his latte’s and said to me dozens of times “you fly and I’ll buy” (to Starbucks). I’ll fly one more time tomorrow morning Greg, and drink one for you.
