Founder & Search Consultant
Founded in 2014, Laney Solutions is the leading parking industry recruitment firm specializing in middle and senior management, experienced sales professionals and executive level placements. Driven by client and candidate satisfaction, we target and locate quality candidates who possess very specific skills, experience, education, training and more – to match our client’s exact requirements.
From marketing and sales to operations and product development, we have an extensive network of top talent in the parking, mobility, transportation and smart cities space.
We are able to deliver exceptional candidates that your in-house or current traditional recruitment firm hasn’t been able to because Laney Solutions is different.
After all, helping our clients hire great talent isn’t just a key part of our business. No, it IS our business. And because this is what we do, and only what we do, we invest heavily in technology, tools, resources and efforts to bring that game-changing talent to our clients.
Kathleen’s goal in establishing Laney Solutions was to provide high-quality executive recruitment to an under-served industry. And by having a narrow focus, she has developed exceptional parking industry expertise in a short period of time. Over the past seven years, she has earned trusted advisor status with parking leaders around the world through careful relationship building, superior client and candidate service, and relentless dedication to results.
Today, Kathleen is a leading industry voice on the future of the parking professional, and has spoken and written extensively on the topic through industry associations and publications. In 2016, she was recognized with NPA's Top 40 Under 40 award and is a former Board Member of the Women in Parking Association.
Prior to starting Laney Solutions, Kathleen worked in recruitment, human resources management and corporate strategy in the financial services, high-tech and transportation industries. She holds a BA degree in Public Relations and Political Science from Syracuse University where she graduated Magna cum Laude and was elected Phi Beta Kappa and a MS degree in Human Resources Management from Nazareth College of Rochester.
Kathleen lives in Denver, Colorado. In her free time, she is always up for a good adventure. You can likely find her traveling in remote parts of the world, skydiving, whitewater rafting or hiking 14,000+ foot mountains.
