San Diego, CA: Dixon Resources Unlimited is pleased to welcome Josh Powers as a Senior Technology Implementation Manager. Josh is an experienced parking professional with more than 11 years in the industry. Josh developed his skills as a technical expert by deploying several high-profile off-street parking projects with his role at SKIDATA, one of the world’s largest PARCS vendors.
Throughout his career, Josh has forged productive working relationships with property owners, operators, partner vendors, asset managers, and consultants to deploy projects ranging in excess of $12 million. He most recently facilitated the implementation of the San Diego Airport Terminal 2 Parking structure.
Josh has participated in the successful implementation of over 100 PARCS installations over the past 11 years and is versed in the hardware, software, and technology necessary for operating system structures. He has worked closely with several partnering technology providers in order to provide his clients with turnkey solutions, including the much acclaimed “Smart Parking” application hosted by Westfield.
In addition to playing critical roles in several deployments, Josh has been responsible for overseeing the operations staff in his position as Director of Operations at SKIDATA. This title gave him the responsibility of ensuring compliance and profitability for an entire department.
Josh started in the field as an installation technician, quickly moving through the ranks of Project Manager, Technical Services Manager, and Regional Manager, ending his role at SKIDATA as a Sales Executive. This experience has enabled Josh to learn every aspect of the parking business and truly understand what drives and motivates a successful PARCS deployment. His familiarity with Parking Guidance Systems (PGS), single space sensors, and multi-space meters, brings a well-rounded skill set to the DIXON team.
As a Senior Technology Implementation Manager, Josh will oversee vendors and manage project schedules to ensure that DIXON’s customers are able to seamlessly implement their parking solutions. He will work alongside City staff in support of the procurement, installation, and integration of technology, such as single-space meters, multi-space meters, pay by phone, LPR, citation and permit management systems, and PGS, along with the infrastructure needed to support these technologies. By working closely with vendors to ensure vendor commitments, Josh will be an immediate asset to DIXON’s customers.
