The Board of European airport parking leader, ParkCloud, has named industry stalwart, Peter Hilton, as its first Chairperson.
Having spearheaded global growth in his previous role as Chief Executive of worldwide transport company, Holiday Taxis, Peter will now take up the newly created role, acting as an intermediary between shareholders and providing oversight of the actions taken by top-line decision makers.
A significant senior asset with a wealth of industry insight, Peter will fulfil his duties as chair in a predominately advisory role, with founder and Managing Director, Mark Pegler, continuing to head up the day-to-day operations of the business.
Speaking about his appointment, Peter Hilton commented:
“ParkCloud has built up impressive momentum within the rapidly changing online travel market, establishing a strong reputation as one of the leading independent aggregators of its kind.
