MobileNOW!, the industry-leading provider of customer-driven parking payments by cell phone, named John Oglesby as President and CEO. Oglesby has assumed the position and has already brought along several positive impacts.
“John’s experience in parking, parking technology and transportation projects, his entrepreneurial spirit, and focus on client retention and continued company growth is a great fit. His fresh product ideas and feature initiatives will help MobileNOW! leap into the future. John is an outstanding business leader who brings a wealth of experience and keen understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the parking and transportation industry. We are delighted to have him join the company and expand our reach while refining our mission,” says Krista Altok Tassa, the founder of MobileNOW!.
Oglesby noted, “The mobile payment industry is one I have been dealing with successfully since 2006 and I believe we can separate ourselves from this active and crowded field by focusing on becoming the first cell phone parking system and app built by parking people for parking operators, cities, hospitals, and airports to truly serve the parking public. We understand the customer needs, deliver the best solution and will continue to focus on customers adopting the great convenience of MobileNOW!. MobileNOW!'s customer-focused culture is the critical factor that attracted me to this opportunity. Parking is the First and Last impression for anyone in a vehicle. MobileNOW! payments allow engaging with a customer earlier than is possible using traditional payment methods, thus making the whole parking experience better and more personalized.”
Oglesby has a proven track record of leading complex operations in North America. He has thirty years of parking and technology experience, including more than twenty-five years with Central Parking and Impark, as the President and COO of Aparc Systems, and as an independent consultant. He has multiple decades of experience in customer retention and innovation. John also lead the U.S. team for parking for the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, and has specialized in Stadiums and Arenas as well as new technology development.
John is active on committees for the National Parking Association and the International Parking Institute, and has presented numerous times at their conventions and trade shows. He also serves on the Business Council for Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity. John is a graduate of the University of Central Oklahoma.
Oglesby continues to serve as the Vice President of Business Development and Technology Implementation with Denison Parking. This unique sharing of resources of two very different companies offers MobileNOW! a direct access to the everyday concerns of parking operators, which helps the company continue to develop products and services addressing the real-life needs of the parking industry.
