“Our shared vision of delivering superior service to our clients and customers will always be front of mind as we continue to grow across the Southeast and the greater United States," Means stated in the release

Means will be transitioning from his position as the executive director of the Lexington Parking Authority, where over his 16-year tenure he guided the organization through more than $15 million in capital advancements. Under his leadership, the authority won multiple awards and achieved designation as an Accredited Parking Organization in 2017, the release stated.
