UK and Ireland

APCOA PARKING Group is delighted to announce the appointment of Kim Challis to the position of Regional Managing Director for the UK and Ireland.

With a strong pedigree in business development and stakeholder management, Challis’ entrepreneurship and proactive-leadership approach will be a key facet to growing the UK and Ireland businesses.

Having previously held a number of senior executive and board positions with G4S; most recently as Regional Managing Director for its facilities management division, Challis remains steadfast on being able to deliver significant business change and positive outcomes, both in the commercial and public sectors.

Challis takes up her new senior executive position with APCOA PARKING from Henk de Bruin, who will reassume business activities in his Group Director capacity, as well as continuing in his role as Managing Director for APCOA PARKING in the Netherlands.

In response to Challis’ appointment, Ralf Bender, Chief Executive Officer for APCOA PARKING Group, said: “I am delighted that Kim is able to join us and drive our UK and Ireland businesses into new key territories. Kim is a dynamic and very astute businesswoman, who has a proven-track record in delivering positive-outcomes across a diverse range of commercial and public sector portfolios, which is important for our business. These are revered qualities, which have all been underpinned by strong leadership, team motivation and people development, which is what APCOA PARKING prides itself on,” he added.

Challis will now become an integral part of APCOA PARKING’s new business proposition; particularly within the aviation and commercial parking services sectors, where she will continue to generate best value for a range of key stakeholders.
