Merriam-Webster dictionary defines “suit” as “to meet the needs or desires of.” Mike Amoroso’s definition of “suit” is “a competitor’s apologetic corporate parking guy rushing to meet with a property manager explaining how he will, again, make amends for the mess his lack of oversight and hands-off approach has caused his client.”
Mike Amoroso isn’t a stranger to standard corporate attire. However, it is not uncommon to find Mike rolling up his sleeves at a new location transition helping clean an attendant’s booth that hasn’t seen a mop since its installation.
Penn Parking’s field operations are orchestrated by Vice President of Operations Mike Amoroso. Mike oversees Penn Parking’s 16,000 plus parking spaces housed in more than 40 locations in Maryland, D.C., and Virginia.
When Mike is not at his desk, you can count on the fact that he is in the field talking with a client, a site manager or line employee. He can also be found touring locations with area managers, meeting vendors or mentoring new recruits.
Mike joined Penn Parking in 1993 and has (as he likes to say) grown up with Lisa and Victoria.
“For more than 25 years, we’ve celebrated contract awards and option renewals; we’ve also shared the joy of our children’s births and later their graduations. We’ve stressed together over expiring contracts, new bid opportunities and on a personal level even college options for our kids. Simply put we are family. We know how the other ticks. We know each other’s hot buttons and we know when to give each other space. We even finish sentences for each other. Above all, Lisa, Victoria and I each have the absolute commitment to make Penn Parking the best parking management company out there. We genuinely care and take ownership in everything we do because we know that letting a client down is letting each other down.”
Prior to joining Penn Parking, Mike spent years managing parking locations for one of the world’s largest parking companies. Mike often states that while working for a large company, he was frequently handcuffed in his ability to respond to a client or customer’s need in rapid and creative ways. It wasn’t a good fit.
Although Mike works in a corporate office that bleeds purple, he carries the “Black-n-Gold” colors proudly. Hi “real life” is spent camping with his two youngest sons’ scout troop, coaching baseball, watching his daughter dance in college or mentoring his oldest son who recently graduated college and is establishing himself in today’s workforce. His favorite downtime is spent hanging out and relaxing with his best friend and wife, Terry, of more than 27 years.
