PayByPhone Announces New Global Leadership Structure As The Business Continues To Grow

 

Vancouver, Canada, March 23 2022 – PayByPhone, the global leader in mobile parking payments, announces today a shift away from its regional organization to a new global leadership structure, which comes into effect on April 1, 2022.


The new global structure focuses on supporting the company’s three key customer groups – clients, such as cities, universities, and parking operators; corporate, including fleets and businesses; and consumers, the drivers who use PayByPhone’s services. Three experienced PayByPhone leaders will be stepping up to lead each of these verticals, with product and development teams also organized to support this structure. This dedicated approach underpins the company’s strong 60% year-over-year growth and on-going ambitious targets, while ensuring operational excellence across all areas of business.

PayByPhone CEO Andy Gruber says, “Moving to a global, customer focused organization will allow our customer groups to benefit from dedicated teams and a more tailored approach to their distinct requirements. We know that our cities and parking operators, our corporate customers, and our 50 million app users all have specific needs, and we want to reflect this in our global organization. This new global structure will guarantee that each of our customer groups can continue to enjoy our services and concentrate on what matters most to them.”

In the context of this new global structure, Roamy Valera, a 30-year veteran in the industry, becomes Chief Client Officer, overseeing the client division and PayByPhone’s more than 1,300 clients globally. His goal is to build upon the company’s recent expansion – client numbers have increased by 20% over the course of 2021 alone. One global client team, focusing on expansion and client success, will ensure not only more places for drivers to park across the globe, but also enhanced experiences for clients. Valera was previously PayByPhone’s CEO of North America.

Jonny Combe becomes CEO, Corporate. He leads a strong team across North America, Europe, and the UK, as they look to expand the fleet business globally with the recently launched PayByPhone Business, a solution designed to simplify parking for fleet managers and companies with on-the-go workforces. Since its launch in 2021, PayByPhone Business has grown more than 250%, helping to give businesses a much-needed solution to manage complex fleet parking issues and to save precious time for both drivers and fleet managers. Combe was previously PayByPhone’s CEO of the UK.

Ryan St Hilaire, PayByPhone’s Vice President, Product, will oversee the Consumer division globally, in addition to overseeing all product work. His focus is firmly on the customer experience and ensuring that PayByPhone continues to simplify the journey for the driver in more than 1,200 cities around the world. Leading design, product marketing, and product management teams, St Hilaire will be diving into the needs and desires of PayByPhone’s millions of quarterly active users, uncovering and building the features and services that can best support their journeys.

Valera, Combe, and St Hilaire report directly to Gruber.

 

North American Leadership Changes

Together with Valera’s move to a global role, Carmen Donnell, who was Vice President, Sales and has been with PayByPhone since January 2019, is promoted to Managing Director of North America.

She will oversee all day-to-day business matters, safeguard the company culture, and support client relationships throughout North America. Alongside her leadership team, she will develop, implement, and advance the business’ strategic objectives as it works to meet its ambitious growth targets.

Donnell says, “This is an exciting point in PayByPhone’s journey. We’re growing and launching new solutions for our clients and users every day. I’m thrilled to be able to work together with our clients to find ways to simplify people’s daily journeys and look forward to finding creative solutions, while at the same time focusing on growth and improvement. It’s an exciting opportunity and one that I can’t wait to dive into.”

PayByPhone’s 50 Million Global Users Can Now Park in Italy

March 24, 2022

PayByPhone’s 50 Million Global Users Can Now Park in Italy

PayByPhone, the global leader in mobile parking payments, today announced the launch of their global app in Italy.

 

 

 

Vancouver, BC, Canada  — PayByPhone initially launched in Italy back in 2018 with availability only in Italy. With this month’s launch, the global PayByPhone app will provide Italian users access to locations outside of Italy, and PayByPhone’s more than 50 million global users will now have access to park in Italy. PayByPhone’s simplified, cashless parking experience is available with more than 1,300 clients across the globe, including the cities of Paris, San Francisco, Amsterdam, Brussels, London, Geneva – and now 90 cities in Italy, including Verona, Torino, Bologna, and Napoli.

“PayByPhone’s goal was always to create one global app, on one global platform, servicing the world. Bringing Italy on board is the next step along this journey, with plans to launch Germany onto our global app later this year” said Andy Gruber, Global CEO. “As people start venturing out on more trips and holidays this year, we want to deliver them a seamless parking experience and a simplified journey. Bringing Italy onto our global app brings them one step closer to that.”

PayByPhone’s growth has been strong, despite the global pandemic. Client growth was up 20% in 2021 alone and global parking transactions grew by 60%.

PayByPhone also made it even easier for Italian users to park by launching Apple Pay, which has proven to be hugely popular in other markets. In North America, for example, just 500,000 PayByPhone users were using Apple Pay a year ago. Today, that number has doubled to over a million. There are also plans to launch PayPal in Italy this Spring.

“One of our core values is to continually improve the services we offer our customers,” said Gruber. “We’re on a constant outlook to simplify people’s journeys, and frequent innovations to our global app and global platform will make their lives easier. The launch of Apple Pay in more and more markets is just one of those improvements, offering parkers more choice and more convenience with globally trusted payment options.”
