It’s my great pleasure to announce that Yona Shtern has officially joined ParkWhiz as CEO and I’ve moved to Chairman.
Since founding ParkWhiz over ten years ago, it has been my vision to make it easier for people to move about. In bringing that vision to life, we have put smiles on millions of drivers’ faces. From scratch we took an idea, mixed in unrelenting passion and determination, and built something people love. The key ingredient, though, has been the amazingly talented people I have the privilege of working alongside. They have taught and inspired me all along the journey toward making ParkWhiz what it is today, and it has been the greatest joy for me to come to work with them every day. To our customers, strategic partners, investors and employees, I thank you for your support as we continue to iterate and improve.
While our vision has come to life, the journey is not complete. Mobility is rapidly changing, and with connected and autonomous vehicles soon to hit the road, ParkWhiz is just hitting its stride.
The Board and I spent a great deal of time searching for the right person to help lead ParkWhiz to the next level. Yona is an experienced leader who believes in what we’ve built, but also recognizes how vast our opportunity is for growth. ParkWhiz has been fortunate to have him on our board, and we’re even more fortunate to have him in the driver’s seat.
As Chairman, I’ll continue to be very active, working on shaping our vision and longer term strategic opportunities. I’m thrilled to be working with Yona, our COO Dan Roarty, and the rest of our world-class team as we continue to build a great company that will help shape the transportation ecosystem.
