ParkMobile Brings on Matt Ball as New CTO

By Ken Briodagh August 01, 2018

ParkMobile, a provider of smart parking and mobility solutions in the U.S., recently announced the appointment of Matt Ball as CTO. In this role, Ball will be responsible for the IT organization as the company continues to scale and create the next generation of mobility solutions.

The hire comes at the end of a successful first half of 2018 for ParkMobile that saw the company grow by over 30 percent year-over-year and add parking locations in 30 new cities across North America including Tampa, FL, Berkeley, CA, Montgomery County, MD and Tulsa, OK.

Ball brings over 18 years of financial services, fintech, and global transaction processing experience to ParkMobile.  Most recently, Ball was the VP of Global Business Solutions Technology for First Data Corporation, a leading financial services company that processes 3,000 transactions every second every day, equaling $2.4 trillion per year. Ball was responsible for the reporting and analytics for the global merchant business as well as the execution of the North America technology plan and security initiatives.  Prior to First Data, Ball spent 15 years at Fifth Third Bank in various leadership positions across treasury management and transaction banking services.  In his role as Payments CIO, he was responsible for 150 platforms and the successful processing of over $14 trillion in payments annually.  Ball holds an undergraduate degree in Engineering and a MBA from Purdue University.

"This is a critical stage in our company's history," said Jon Ziglar, CEO, ParkMobile. "We have transitioned from a small software startup to a true market leader. As we continue to scale our smart parking and mobility solutions, we need a technology executive with the experience and vision to take us into the future. Matt's extensive experience with large scale transaction processing, digital channel strategy and data analytics makes him the right person at the right time as we scale our business globally.  We are excited to welcome him to our growing team."

"I am extremely proud to join ParkMobile," said Ball. "This is a unique opportunity to work on innovation solutions that will change the parking and mobility industry. I believe my experience in payments and digital strategy will help us rapidly scale our solutions in North America and around the globe. The company already has a strong foundation built on modern technology, created by an extraordinarily talented team. I could not be more excited."
