Vancouver, British Columbia

Vancouver, British Columbia is a dynamic, international city that offers an unprecedented range of activities and experiences. Diamond Parking Canada began managing parking facilities in 1995 gradually building a diverse parking portfolio. Today, states Mike Poirier, Vice President of Operations for Diamond Parking Canada, a favorable exchange rate for the US dollar, world class events and summer like weather is making a difference. “We are seeing a lot more activity from US tourists. They are taking advantage of a 20 percent gain on their dollar. It’s definitely boosting our business.“ Mike adds that women’s soccer is also boosting parking revenues. “The FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015™ is hosting nine matches at BC Place Stadium, including the Final Match. It’s the largest women’s sporting event in the world.“ Suraya Tabesh, Director of Business Development, sees growth coming from several sectors including property management, hospitality, and retail. “For me, in person networking is extraordinary powerful. Building trust with new clients is best delivered in person.” Suraya joined Diamond in 2014. She brings an extensive network of contacts from her previous careers in business marketing and product development.
