Ace Parking launches fifth year for PARK FOR PINK campaign—and adds TEAL.

On September 1st, 2018, we will be kicking off our award-winning PARK FOR PINK campaign for its fifth consecutive year of raising awareness and generating funds to aid in the fight against cancer.

This year, in addition to turning pink for breast cancer awareness, Ace will also be turning teal as we partner with the Ovarian Cancer Coalition and the Ovarian Cancer Alliance in cities nationwide. Since September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, we will be extending PARK FOR PINK to run throughout the months of September and October. During these months, each time a customer parks with Ace a portion of our parking proceeds will be donated to the fight against ovarian cancer.

Ace is proud of our efforts to support cancer awareness and research. Over the past four years, the PARK FOR PINK program has raised over $250,000 to benefit organizations such as the Susan G. Komen® Foundation for breast cancer research, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society to cure blood cancers, and the American Cancer Society to help patients and their families, as well as directly to hospital oncology departments and to the purchase of robotic surgical equipment.

PARK FOR PINK was inspired by my own family’s fight against cancer, as well as the struggle of many others in our Ace Parking family,” said third generation Owner & Managing Partner, Keith B. Jones. “Because so many are directly or indirectly impacted by cancer, I am privileged to utilize Ace Parking as a platform to support those who are suffering, those who treat and support cancer patients, and those who are working to find the cures.”

Keep an eye out for Ace team members wearing pink and teal PARK FOR PINK bracelets during September and October in honor of the campaign, as well as the traditional pink Ace Parking lot signs throughout the month of October!

Michael Tillman Makes NPA’s 40 Under 40

We are proud to announce that Ace Parking team member, Michael Tillman, has been named as part of the National Parking Association’s (NPA) annual 40 Under 40 class for 2018! The 40 Under 40 distinction identifies the parking industry’s most influential young management professionals nationwide – and we agree, Michael exemplifies that distinction.

Michael Tillman currently holds the position of Las Vegas Regional Vice President, overseeing all operations and new business efforts for Ace’s Las Vegas region. With over 10 years of experience in the parking industry, Michael was chosen to lead the Caesars parking portfolio in late 2016, successfully transitioning 8 Las Vegas strip properties to a paid parking model, including over 25,000 stalls, 65 lanes of self-park equipment, 300 valet team members and a management team of 40 direct reports.

Michael was responsible for Ace Parking’s growth, from a place of no presence in the Las Vegas market to today, being one of the largest parking operators in Las Vegas in under two years. His approach to providing mobility solutions is forward-thinking and innovative.

“I am dedicated to making a positive impact on the future of our parking industry by leading our team to approach their roles in a solutions based manner. As the industry evolves and the needs of our clients and guests’ changes, it’s our job to provide stewardship to clients and seamless experiences for our guests.”
