Regional Marketing Manager, Chicago, IL.

Ashley is no stranger to the parking industry. She previously worked in parking as a marketing professional and left to pursue other opportunities to broaden her horizons. Her decision to rejoin the world of parking and SP+ was based on her instincts. “When I interviewed for the position, it was great to hear how collaborative the team was and how passionate everyone was about their roles within the company. It felt like a good fit for what I could bring to the table and what I would be learning along the way. My experience at SP+ has been nothing short of amazing. The teams I work with are very hardworking. We challenge each other to give nothing short of our best every day,” she said.

Before working in marketing, Ashley started her career as a newspaper journalist covering crime and court cases. Ashley said, “My outgoing personality and my curious nature led me to study journalism, but I knew it wasn’t something I could see myself doing for a long time.” Thinking of her future, she decided to pursue her master’s degree in marketing and start a new career path. “I knew marketing was the perfect role for me when I started imagining my career path 10, 20 years later. If you love what you do, you don’t consider it a job but a passion.”
