Announcing Expansion of LAZ Transportation Services and Shuttle Operations
LAZ Parking is happy to announce it has acquired Professional Parking, a California-based shuttle company that has over 150 employees and a fleet of over 50 shuttles. As part of this exciting new venture, LAZ is also welcoming Ralph Caldin as the new Vice President of Transportation Services.
Professional Parking was incorporated in March 2009, based in Signal Hill, CA. Starting out as a parking company, Professional Parking won its first shuttle bid in March 2010 in Orange, CA. After a very successful transition, the company continued its aggressive growth on the transportation side of the business. Within three years, their portfolio included municipal accounts, universities and seasonal deals. With over 50 shuttles in its fleet, the company was providing shuttle services to more universities than any other company in Los Angeles and Orange County.
“LAZ welcomes entrepreneurs within its family, demonstrating the company’s mission of creating opportunities for employees coming from smaller companies and deliver values to its clients by offering a wider range of first-class services. We are thrilled to have Ralph and the Professional Parking employees join our team. The success that Professional Parking has earned in the shuttle and transportation sector over the last ten years is inspiring and we are grateful to have their expertise as part of LAZ Parking family,” said Alan Lazowski, Chairman and CEO of LAZ Parking.
Ralph Caldin, owner of Professional Parking says, “One of the reasons I decided to start my own company in 2009 was so that I could treat my employees the way I wanted them to be treated. My biggest concern was my employees, and if they were going to a good place, with a people first culture. Knowing they are going to a great organization that is investing in its employees and that they would have more opportunities to grow; I decided to merge with LAZ Parking. It’s exciting to be a part of a dynamic, growing and successful company with such a great reputation. I am looking forward to my new role of business development on a national scale.”
