Appointment of UK Managing Director

Appointments, Transport & Logistics, EMEA, Supplier News

SWARCO AG and SKIDATA AG have appointed Steve Murphy as managing director of their UK parking solutions joint-venture, APT SKIDATA.


Murphy originally joined APT SKIDATA three years ago to lead its operations team before moving to a SWARCO UK operational management role. In both roles Steve made significant contributions to improving customer service and implementing technology and digital innovations to support an even higher level of operational delivery. 


He says his focus will continue to be on innovation and digital solutions: “APT SKIDATA has been the UK’s leading provider of parking solutions for the past 25 years and has an enviable reputation for quality, reliability and proven performance with hundreds of shopping centres, airports and city centre car parks across the UK. 


“But to compliment the high quality product, we also have our own experts within our Professional Services team, who have been keeping us ahead of the competition by developing new products and bespoke client solutions, which have really helped transform the way parking is perceived and kept us at the forefront of the industry.


“Our digital innovations and integrated solutions mean that we were already the ideal parking partner,” says Steve, “but the pandemic has raised more questions around how digital solutions can improve parking, and other areas of mobility, and we are here to answer those questions. It is an exciting time to be returning to APT SKIDATA.”


Jeremy Cowling, Vice President of SWARCO's North Europe and UK ITS Division, adds: "Steve’s considerable experience in the business, along with his drive and enthusiasm, make him the ideal candidate to lead APT SKIDATA in the next phase of its journey. He will be positioning the business for further growth by exploring new market sectors and introducing new technologies to our extensive portfolio.”
