Latest News - Board Announcement

The Board is pleased to announce the appointment of two new members to the Parking Sense team.

Jake Bezzant has been engaged in the new role of Chief Operating Officer and Dave Mackie assumes an active role, as well as a position on the Board, as Director Manufacturing and Installation. Both these positions will be based in our Head Office, Cambridge, New Zealand.

Jake Bezzant brings to the team a legal, managerial and commercial background - skills critical to the future direction and success of Parking Sense. Jake’s previous position with the ASX listed Smart Parking Ltd, has provided him with experience that will be pivotal in taking Parking Sense to the next level in the highly competitive parking industry.

Jake’s role will see him responsible for the day to day management of Parking Sense’s operational activities and sales and marketing, including liaison with Distributors. Jake brings great enthusiasm to the role and is excited about the inroads Parking Sense has already made in the technology driven parking guidance market and the possibilities this affords. He will hit the ground running with a tour to Australia and the United States of America starting later this month.

Dave Mackie was part of the same team that originally brought Metereye to the market, still one of the most technically advanced parking and guidance systems available. He remained with the company through its successful February 2011 listing on the ASX as Car Parking Technologies and like Jake Bezzant was there when it later rebranded as Smart Parking. In January 2014, after three years in the publicly listed environment and over 7 years as Global Installation Manager, Dave resigned to pursue other opportunities.

Paul Collins and Dave Mackie have a long and successful history of working together in the parking industry so it made sense for Paul to seek Dave’s technical expertise to help launch a new venture. Now after a long wait due to other commitments, Dave is excited to be back working within this familiar fold.
