Short and Sweet


Short and Sweet

Its going to be short today — I am at deadline and have been spending time playing with the new blog stuff. Now I have to get the editorial ready for PT April.

I see from my correspondence that Rob Kragelj and Mike Rodger at Digital Payment Technologies have a new boss. Investment Banker Andrew Scott is taking over from CEO Ron Barnes, who will remain on board as Chairman of the Board. Changes abound in Vancouver.

What about Passion for Parking?

I know it sounds infantile, "passion" for the parking business. But we need some emotion in our industry. Just getting up and going to work every day doesn’t hack it. An old acquaintence once told me that you don’t really understand parking until you crave carbon monoxide, that it flows in your blood.

He was a senior staffer in a major parking company and had been parking cars since he was 12, or something.

We held a meeting a few weeks ago of some parking pros and you could feel the passion for this business in that room. Some people were actually angry about the direction of the industry.  Can you imagine — ANGRY about parking. That’s passion. You will be hearing more about the passion some have for the business that feeds our families.
