Carl DePinto, director of Parking for the New York-Presbyterian Healthcare System, has been selected as the new director for Parking and Transportation Services for Duke University and Duke University Health System.
DePinto, who brings more than 15 years of parking experience in areas like healthcare, hospitality and major sporting events, was selected after a national search that began earlier this spring. DePinto begins his role at Duke on Oct. 16.
“We are thrilled to have someone with the depth of Carl’s knowledge and experience,” said Kyle Cavanaugh, vice president for administration. “He will provide leadership for Parking and Transportation Services at a critical time, as the department oversees several major initiatives.”
Some of these Duke projects include the construction of a new parking garage, the transition to a radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology parking system, and the implementation of a new information management system.
DePinto’s portfolio includes technology driven products, including the first implementation of RFID technology and pay-on-foot systems in healthcare parking facilities in New York City. He also has been involved with the development of new parking garages, as well as major capital renovations.
“I’m honored to join Duke and extremely excited to work with the university and health system,” DePinto said. “There are a lot of contemporary projects underway and on the horizon, and I look forward to being a part of these efforts to further enhance the customer experience.”
DePinto comes to Duke from New York, where, for the past five years, he served as the director of Parking for New York-Presbyterian Healthcare System, an enterprise-wide role that includes the Weill Cornell Medical College and Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons.
Prior to the New York-Presbyterian Healthcare System, DePinto was the operations and parking consultant for the Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey and senior director of operations and development for Professional Parking LLC at their New York and New Jersey facilities.
DePinto has worked extensively in the Tri-State Area (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut), overseeing hotel, hospital and municipal valet parking, as well as parking and transportation for events such as the FedExCup golf championship, the ATP World tennis classic and the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour, among other major televised sporting events.
He earned a bachelor of science in business administration and an MBA in marketing from Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey.
