Matt Eierman

Parking Services Division Manager

City of Sacramento

Matt Eierman has served as the City of Sacramento Parking Services Division Manager since 2013, overseeing a staff of 142 employees who provide support as unit managers, parking lot personnel, parking enforcement officers, parking meter operations, city right-of-way management, maintenance and custodial operations.

His experience stems from 13 years in the roles of Operations General Supervisor and Administrative Officer, managing the City’s off-street and parking meter operations. Prior to City service, Matt was a member of the senior management team for AMPCO Parking where he first started his professional parking career as a valet driver.

Mr. Eierman was instrumental in the implementation of the City of Sacramento’s Parking Modernization movement. This process included an overhaul of parking policies, technologies, operations and equipment. These changes were necessary to balance the anticipated parking and transportation management needs with the addition of new businesses, growth in residential housing, the Railyard expansion and Golden 1 Center.

In a short period of two years, innovations such as online parking reservations, shared parking strategies, online residential permits, upgrades with advanced garage equipment, license plate recognition technology, new parking management business lines, wayfinding signs and a comprehensive Certified Partners Program were implemented. This involved extensive outreach with community and business groups, marketing campaigns and media coverage.
