The National Parking Association (NPA) announced their 2021 40 Under 40 Class today and we are thrilled to announce that two members of the Premier Parking team have earned this recognition from their peers in the parking industry. The Premier Parking recipients of this award are:

  1. Mark Raymond, Seattle Area Director
  2. Anthony Leone, CPP, Detroit Area Director

Premier Parking’s CEO Ryan Hunt commented on this year’s recipients saying, “We place a high value for the 40 Under 40 recognition within Premier and are thoughtful with our nominations each year. Anthony and Mark are two people that have proven their worth at Premier and we are pleased to find that our industry peers also see the value that these two men bring to parking.”

Both men have excellent qualities that allow them to succeed and thrive in the parking industry. Anthony’s nominator describes him as, “…patient, thoughtful, and understanding to his co-workers, clients, and customers. His excitement for the future of the parking industry is contagious and brings a level of optimism and positive energy to the work environment…”

Mark’s nominator also had nothing but great things to say, writing, “He’s a team player, a quick learner, results oriented, an excellent communicator, and the list goes on. When hiring for leaders in our company, I often try to find the next “Mark Raymond” because we’re not only better as a company, but as an industry with more people like Mark in it.”

The Young Leader’s Network will induct Mark and Anthony, along with the other Class of 2021 40 Under 40 award recipients, during this year’s NPA 2021 Convention and Expo. This will be the first-time parking professionals from across the country will have a chance to meet since the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. The annual NPA convention was help virtually last September in order to protect the safety and well-being of their members. However, this year the NPA 2021 Convention and Expo will return, in-person, in Las Vegas from September 26th through September 29th.

Christine Banning, NPA’s President, described the 2021 class of 40 Under 40 as, “… the parking industry’s best and brightest young professionals, who are growing as leaders in the parking industry.”

Mark and Anthony join an elite group of individuals at Premier Parking who have also received recognition in previous years including:

Congrats to Mark and Anthony on this well-deserved honor.
