Here‚Äôs How William Lerner Balanced Business And Charity!
William Lerner is best known as the President and CEO of iPark ‚Äď the largest and most reputed
family-owned parking garage in New York. The company was initially known as Imperial
Parking Systems and was founded by William‚Äôs father. Today, it stands as a brand, and the credit
goes to the man who has worked tirelessly for it for 20 years. Here is a take on his story.
Starting with business
Billy, as he is often called fondly known to many, started his business journey early when he
accompanied his father to the parking garages. After completing his graduation from University
of Colorado, Billy returned to business and started revamping and changing the operational
functions, focusing extensively on the mix of technological transitions. He was also interested in
expanding the company, for which he started working on different acquisitions, taking the
number of facilities to over 100. Today, he remains one of the major contributors to technological
evolution in the industry.
Moving to charity
Right from the start, Bill Lerner was never happy with just numbers. He wanted to do more for
a better world, and that‚Äôs when he had started doing charity work. He has worked with
organization for more than two decades and is the founder of Billy4Kids. Billy4Kids is a special
nonprofit organization, which works to offer and donate shoes for underprivileged children, so as
to prevent many of the common infections caused from parasitic diseases. He takes active part in
the activities of the organization and ensures that efforts are made to reach out other charities in
the same field.
At the Annual Edeyo Gives Hope Gala in 2014, he was honored with the Humanitarian Award.
However, he likes to maintain a low profile and doesn‚Äôt like taking of his success. ‚ÄúOnly good
work matters,‚ÄĚ he had once said.
