Brian Gansert, President of Operations
When you pay that parking fee, you can’t help but grit your teeth (no one likes to go to the dentist either, but you still have to go). So why has ACE Parking been so successful for nearly 7 decades? Brian Gansert will take us on a “ride” from 1950, when founder Evan Jones started the company with one parking lot, to today’s company that is now over 500 parking “applications” strong and employs more than 4500 people. He’ll discuss what is really behind those parking fees you hate to pay. He’ll share critical success factors, lessons learned, and commitment to “stay the course” yet pursue expansion into Las Vegas. Brian will also share how the impact of new technology and the modern “shared economy” is guiding their long-term strategy for continued success. Please join us as Brian presents what’s “under the hood” of one of San Diego’s iconic family businesses.
Brian oversees Ace Parking’s operations throughout the US covering Special Events, Commercial, Retail, Surface Lots and Mixed-Use Facilities. From his base in San Diego, Brian devotes his time and energy on building a team of dedicated parking professionals that are driving Ace Parking’s operations to greater heights in terms of profitability, efficiency and customer service. With a team of 15 direct reports, together they manage the parking activities for more than 350 locations throughout Southern California, Arizona, Texas, Oregon, Washington, New Orleans and Washington DC/Arlington. Clients and accounts include Qualcomm Stadium, Petco Park and Convention Centers in Phoenix, Dallas and San Diego. Brian received his Bachelor’s degree from California State University Long Beach.
