Kenny Marland

Managing Director/Founder

I was born in Preston and moved to Yorkshire in 2006. I got into parking by accident! I was working in a career managing nightclubs where I excelled and earned internal promotions making it as a General Manager by the age of 21. Working in that industry along with completing my MDP in business and leadership (Management Development Program) at Loughborough University it provided me with the additional skills I needed.

HX started in my spare bedroom and we issued our first PCN in November 2016. Its crazy to think about the journey we have been on since then. My ambition is for HX to be one of the biggest car park companies in the UK. Building a company based around people is important to me and ensuring we grow as a company, a team and individually at the same time is something I focus on a lot.
