Green Parking Council proudly announces the addition of a new executive director

The Green Parking Council (GPC) recently announced Paul Wessel as its new Executive Director. Mr. Wessels background includes work in both the nonprofit and parking worlds, making him an ideal candidate for the position. A particular focus of Wessels has been capitalizing on underutilized resources, implementing systems-based approaches to productivity and accountability, and nurturing sustainable relationships. This experience will make him an invaluable resource to the GPC going forward.
Board member, Michael Cramer of Winpark, the parking management branch of Hines, said of the appointment I look forward to Pauls involvement in shaping workable and realistic solutions to the challenges posed by implementing sustainability in our parking garages. For solutions to work, they must be viable, and Pauls experience reflects that understanding.

Wessels position as the Director of Traffic and Parking for the city of New Haven, CT gives him insight into the inner workings of the parking industry. During his time as Director, he reorganized and focused the City of New Havens Traffic and Parking Department to increase efficiencies, leading to an increased output of parking enforcement collections by 50% from $2.8 million to $4.3 million under his leadership.

As a member of the Greater New Haven Clean Cities Coalition, environmental responsibility has always been an important value of Pauls. He will combine this personal passion with his professional skills in his position as Executive Director of the Green Parking Council.

"I am impressed by the depth and breadth of the individuals who have committed to GPC's mission of nurturing sustainability in the parking world," explained GPC's Paul Wessel, "I am honored to have the opportunity help move Green Parking Council's program forward."

The Green Parking Council (GPC) is a nonprofit organization providing leadership and oversight for the green conversion of parking facilities to sustainable, environmentally responsible assets. GPC is dedicated to expanding green parking practices and environmental services through its Certified Green Garage rating system. GPC encourages new, alternative parking practices and exceptional industry transformation through creative thought and ingenuity.

By challenging garage owners and managers to collaborate and create open-sourced, sustainable best practices, the parking industry can positively impact the environment.
