Surf City-based Pivot Parking recently announced the addition of industry veteran Gary Means to its growing team.

According to a news release, Means will serve as executive vice president of municipal and commercial parking, focusing on territory growth and the development and implementation of new technologies to benefit parking clients and end users.

Means said he will build on the foundation that Scott Diggs, Paul Adkison, Tina Reid and Brandon Lauterbach have established.

“Our shared vision of delivering superior service to our clients and customers will always be front of mind as we continue to grow across the Southeast and the greater United States," Means stated in the release

Means will be transitioning from his position as the executive director of the Lexington Parking Authority, where over his 16-year tenure he guided the organization through more than $15 million in capital advancements. Under his leadership, the authority won multiple awards and achieved designation as an Accredited Parking Organization in 2017, the release stated.

Means is a Certified Administrator of Public Parking (CAPP) and serves as chair of the International Parking and Mobility Institute (IPMI) Board of Directors.

"He will play an integral part in the upcoming IPMI Parking and Mobility Conference and Expo beginning June 11 in Fort Worth, Texas," the release stated.

Prior to joining the Lexington Parking Authority, Means oversaw Central Parking System of Kentucky Inc. as general manager, supervising more than 100 employees and 50 locations. He increased their bottom line by 48% in his first three years and added 13 new properties.

Means is a graduate of Eastern Kentucky University. He and his wife, Melissa, have two children and three grandchildren.
