Nenil was employed as a Location Manager by Advanced Parking Concepts (APC) for over 16 years. Amongst the locations Nenil was in charge of were Monmouth University, Verizon’s Corporate Office, and The Palisades Condominium. Nenil further served as the premier Lot Manager in APC’s Event Division. Wherever Nenil was assigned he left an indelible impression. Without doubt, Nenil was one of the most popular beloved Managers in APC’s history.



Additionally Nenil competed, captained, and coached in five National Parking Association Valet Olympic games and was honored as APC’s “Best Valet” four times.


Most importantly was Nenil’s content of character. He was a loving, compassionate, loyal, and ethical human being. All of us at APC, and all of our clientele, will profoundly miss him.  As the poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow wrote “Lives of great men all remind us, we can make our lives sublime, and departing, leave behind us, footprints on the sands of time”.

Vark – The Smartest Way to Valet

November 30, 2017


The Smartest Way to Valet





The word valet conveys a luxurious tone, one that paints a picture of a curbside service that would remove the effort and time it would take to self-park a vehicle.  However, the reality today involves lengthy lines and wait times, sometimes in the cold, rain or heat, which often makes this luxury feel more like a hassle – and that’s just the customer side.




Put yourself in the operator’s seat and things get a whole lot more complicated. Filled with plastic key tags, special grease pencils, paper tickets, expensive tablets and even more expensive kiosks.

Well Vark has the solution for both. A great experience for both the operators and the customers with minimal to no extra cost.

After talking to valets and watching the operations run, we realized that there were several ways that the valet industry could be disrupted. From this realization and the desire to provide a tool to solve these problems once and for all, the idea for Vark was born. Combining over 40 years of technology experience and thought leadership from valet consultants, we have the solution that will modernize the valet industry and provide a much better experience.

The old world process is typically a very manual operation utilizing paper tickets or dated technology like text messaging and often leaves both customers and operators wasting time and unfulfilled. This can all be eliminated by using our patent-pending valet platform called Vark. With the tap of a button:

  • Customers can request their vehicle
  • Prompt your valets to pick up a vehicle on their way back from dropping one off
  • View operational analytics
  • Provide in-app marketing to drive additional revenue
  • And so much more…

Key industries that we are serving are: Valet Operators, Hospitality, Healthcare, Cities, and Universities.
