Karla Cantu

District Manager

With more than 25 years of experience in project management, Karla Cantu wears many hats at Platinum Parking. She not only oversees the collection of parking revenue and monitors the daily and monthly issuance of parking, but she also manages AP and AR while greeting clients and managing the phone lines.

In addition to her District Manager duties, Karla is the co-lead for Platinum Parking’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts, alongside Will Thompson, DEI Champion for Platinum Parking. Together they have been working hard to implant a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) program that lives up to the DEI Mission: “At Platinum Parking, we are driving purposeful change that fosters Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion throughout our team, where all voices are valued and heard. Our workforce is a vital part of our culture, and we celebrate our differences. More than words, we also believe action is what creates, lasting and meaningful change.”

Before joining Platinum Parking, Karla held many management positions at nonprofit organizations in Arizona, San Antonio, Florida, and Austin.

Karla attended Austin Community College and holds a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.
