Peter Coakley has been appointed as Smart Parking’s Head of Service Delivery to oversee all aspects of the company’s technology-based installations across the UK and Europe.
Coakley’s core focus will be on ensuring that the critical phases of Smart Parking’s project deployments, including contractor relationship management and the delivery of each element of the installation process are all successfully coordinated.
Coakley will also liaise with the company’s clients and contractors across the UK and Europe to ensure the highest standards of scheme execution efficiency. This will include managing key logistical factors, such as securing installation permits and overseeing bay suspensions, and accounting for practical challenges that can impact on an installation timeline.
Paul Gillespie, Smart Parking’s Group Chief Executive, said that Coakley’s appointment underlined the business’s commitment to leading the market in the deployment of technology-based parking solutions.
“Peter is an experienced manager who possesses an in-depth knowledge of the practical and logistical challenges that need to be overcome to bring a technology project to go-live on time, on budget smoothly and successfully”, comments Paul. “His abilities will give us a further advantage as more local authorities seek to deploy parking solutions like SmartPark across the UK and Europe.”
