Following a degree in mechanical engineering, Luc worked as a product designer for a few years before realising that he wanted to jump over to the marketing side. An MBA later, Luc embarked on a marketing, communications and change management career, mostly within financial services. Over the next 20 years Centrica, Lloyds Banking Group and Unilever have all found their way on to his cv.
However, the world of parking has never been far from Luc’s heart! Having met Harry Clarke – creator of RingGo cashless parking – in 1995, Luc has been involved with RingGo on and off since its inception. However, he finally succumbed and joined on a permanent basis in May 2015.
Today, RingGo is the UK’s leading phone parking service: 9 million registered UK motorists, 126 local authorities and private operators such as NCP, together with an unrivalled UK wide footprint.
In 2012, RingGo’s parent company was purchased outright by the Parkmobile Group with the joint aim of achieving worldwide coverage. The Group now works in partnership with BMWi, following significant investment by the latter during recent years.
