PAVE Mobility, a parking-enforcement solutions provider that offers powerful and user-friendly tools to simplify parking operations and enforcement, announced that it has completed a corporate reorganization and capital raise to fund growth and position the company for future expansion. The transaction was led by US Infravest Managers L.P. (“USIV”) a NY-based, SEC registered investment advisor with capital provided by several leading institutional investors.
With its new structure, capital and ownership base, the company is focused on continuing to enhance its reporting and customer service capabilities and further drive its best-in-class enforcement offering to serve its growing list of customers, sectors, and sites. The additional funding will propel PAVE’s industry leading enforcement solution with investments in business intelligence, R&D and client success initiatives.
“We are fortunate to have been able to attract high quality investors who believe in PAVE and the future of automated vehicle enforcement. Our technology is fairer and less disruptive to consumers as compared to traditional enforcement options and we look forward to working with our customers and clients to grow the automated enforcement business,“ said Fred Bredemeyer, CEO of PAVE Mobility. “I’d also like to thank our founders for their leadership and hard work. While the transition to my leadership has been in progress for over a year, PAVE would not exist today without their dedication and their commitment to the development of this company. We very much appreciate their commitment to the continued transition of the business and the ongoing development of the company.”
As part of this reorganization and raise, there has been no change in the senior executives or managers of the company with the management team continuing to be led by Fred Bredemeyer as CEO and Ben Hoffman as CTO. In addition, the company has recently hired Tom Hurlbut, the former CFO of Pioneer Lines, Inc., as well as the former controller and interim CFO of Norfolk Southern, to spearhead the company’s finance, accounting, and administrative departments.
“PAVE has upgraded vehicle enforcement, and we look forward to supporting Fred, Ben, Tom and the entire team as they continue to grow the business,” said Andrew Right, Managing Partner of US Infravest. “We are also very fortunate to be welcoming Tom, who has a demonstrated leadership track record in the financial space and who will be a key member of the team as PAVE continues to innovate and drive value for our parking operators and municipalities.” Right continued, “We would also like to thank the founders for their work bringing the company to its exceptionally strong position today and appreciate their ongoing support of the company in their new roles as non-executive consultants. We look forward to working with the executive team as they continue to drive the growth of the Company.”
