About

Entrepreneurial, practical, and a visionary. These words seem somewhat contradictory, but these words truly describe George’s leadership style. His experience and education have led him to the point where he is today - building his own brand in the parking industry and beyond. Even though he has big ideas, he possesses the pragmatism to see the limitations, challenges, and obstacles at hand. He believes in others and enjoys building teams and driving innovation through collaborative effort. This team-first ethos forms the foundation upon which George built ParkHub into the successful and driven organization that it is today. George has nearly 17 years of hands-on experience in the parking realm, focusing on managing the parking operations of class-A office garage facilities and comparable top-tier parking operations across the continental United States. He prides himself on deep domain knowledge of the event parking space and providing a comprehensive suite of services both software and hardware to support his ever-growing clientele therein. In order to consistently exceed customer expectations in the event-parking space, ParkHub provides logistics and occupancy management services, as well as cutting-edge insights into parking operations for management. When he’s not modernizing the parking world, he’s at his home in Dallas, Texas, spending time with his wife Chelsey and their two children, George II and Kuper. George is a proud Eagle Scout, Past Worshipful Master of his Texas Masonic Lodge, winner of the 2016 Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award, recipient of Dallas Business Journal 40 under 40 award, recipient of the National Parking Association 40 under 40 award, 2016 finalist of EY Entrepreneur of the Year Southwest Region, and devoted member of his local Highland Park United Methodist Church congregation.
