Atlanta, GA – October 5, 2021 – ParkMobile, the #1 parking app in North America, announced today the hirings of Kara Womack as VP of Product and Chris Henderson as VP of Mobile and Web Engineering. Combined, they have over 30 years of experience in the technology industry.
Womack comes to ParkMobile with over 20 years of experience in product strategy, design, and management. Most recently, she was the Senior Director of Web Strategy and Experience for UserTesting where she helped develop and implement a new monetization strategy, drove customer acquisition strategy and conversion rate optimization for the corporate website, and led product growth initiatives for the company. Prior to that, she spent 18 years at Cox Enterprises, leading product and design teams for Cox Radio and Cox Media Group before transitioning to lead the Autotrader product team. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Alabama Huntsville.
Prior to ParkMobile, Henderson worked for Wunderman Thompson Apps, where he led the engineering team as the Engineering Staff Director for 10+ mobile and OTT apps. He helped build the agency’s first in-house React Native, Roku, and Web development teams.

Henderson holds a bachelor’s degree in Computational Media from Georgia Institution of Technology.
These hires come at the end of a strong Q3 for ParkMobile as they continue to break company records after a slower 2020 due to COVID. ParkMobile is currently up almost 300% versus 2020, as cities re-open across the country and in-person events return. They also hit the 27 million user milestone in August and added over 100 new locations so far in 2021, including Auburn, AL, Dover, DE, Arcata, CA, and Leavenworth, WA, all in Q3.
