Today in Tallahassee during the Florida Cabinet Meeting at the Florida Capitol Building, Jacksonville based Elite Parking Services of America (Elite Parking), a national parking and transportation management company, announced that Florida Governor Rick Scott recognized company President Dane Grey with the Governor’s Business Ambassador Award. The Governor’s Business Ambassador Award is given to businesses in recognition of their efforts to create jobs, develop technology innovation, and opportunities for Florida families.
Dane started Elite Parking Services of America in 2007 from his dorm room at Jacksonville University as a valet parking company. Now Dane’s company oversees transportation and parking management services for airports, the Veterans Administration, local governments and private corporations throughout America and has recently launched a new technology platform that will transform the parking management industry. Elite Parking currently has 320 total employees with 60 employees based in Florida including the corporate headquarters in Downtown Jacksonville. Elite Parking is looking to expand to 150 Florida based employees in the coming year here in Florida with expanded operations in Jacksonville, St Augustine, Tallahassee and Orlando. Dane played football for Jacksonville University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Aviation and Airway Management and he also graduated with an MBA from Delta State University. He is also a graduate of Leadership Jacksonville and volunteers with the Duval County Public School System.
“I am honored for Elite to be recognized by Governor Rick Scott for the Business Ambassador Award,” said Dane Grey. “Since starting Elite in Jacksonville, we have grown from two employees to hundreds nationwide with many of those being here in Florida. We have an excellent team of professionals at our headquarters in downtown Jacksonville and we are in the process of launching our newly innovative technology known as “eTrac” which is an Elite Parking proprietary software that will propel our business and the parking management industry into the 21st century. We look forward to continued success and again thank Governor Scott for his work to help create the foundation that allows businesses like mine to grow and a special thanks to the new Mayor of Jacksonville, Lenny Curry, for his commitment to economic development.”
