CEO and Founder of the International Parking Community
Will Hurley is the CEO and founder of the International Parking Community (IPC). After qualifying as a solicitor in 2007, Will became involved in the parking industry purely by chance. Seeing that the UK parking industry was beleaguered by diminishing standards with an odious reputation in the eyes of the public, Will founded the IPC in 2012 with the express purpose of raising standards across the UK parking industry for the benefit of motorists and parking operators alike.
Always one to question convention, Will instilled the IPC with a set of values predicated upon progressivism and proaction. As a result, the IPC has been at the vanguard of many cutting-edge innovations in the parking industry while boasting an iron-clad legal and legislative mandate.
Will has overseen the creation of the most stringent auditing standards for car park operators in the UK and helped create The Independent Appeals Service (IAS) which he has ensured is offered to all motorists in Scotland and Northern Ireland, not just in England and Wales. The IAS was also the UK's first parking appeals service to provide an online portal option for motorists to appeal a Parking Charge Notice (PCN).
Will has been invited to sit on government advisory boards, and working groups, in connection with Sir Greg Knight's Parking (Code of Practice) Bill and regarding other matters like the adequate provision of parking facilities for Blue Badge holders at railway stations.
As a spokesperson for the parking industry, Will has appeared on SKY News, ITV and the BBC. He is also in regular demand for interviews by radio stations around the UK as a parking pundit.
Media appearances and government obligations to one side, Will feels that his primary duty is to the parking operators he represents and to the motorists they serve.
