Nicholas L. Stoff has been named director of Parking & Transportation Services, announced Steven P. Hoffner, assistant vice chancellor for operations.
Stoff will oversee the University’s parking and transportation staff and operations, including long-range planning for the department, coordinating new construction and maintaining existing parking facilities.
Stoff also will administer WUSTL’s various transportation programs, such as U-Pass, shuttle services and Occasional Parking, and will direct parking plans for campus events such as Commencement and the upcoming vice presidential debate.
“Nick is an experienced manager of parking and transportation initiatives, and I am pleased that he has agreed to join us,” Hoffner said. “The energy he brings to the position will prove invaluable as we tackle the challenges the University faces in balancing the transportation needs of the campus community with the needs of the University while also promoting sustainability.”
Stoff says he is ready for the challenge.
“I am very excited to be a part of the Washington University team,” Stoff said. “The University has a great reputation and is well known for its excellence and devotion to higher education. I look forward to helping the University achieve its goals.”
Stoff most recently worked as deputy director of support services at the Parking Division of the City of St. Louis’ Treasurer’s Office. His duties included serving as a liaison between St. Louis City’s parking enforcement, towing operations and parking violations departments, developing and managing the Parking Division’s annual budget and instituting programs to improve the division’s profitability and efficiency. He also developed a policy and procedure manual for the division.
Before becoming deputy director in 2005, Stoff served as information specialist for the Parking Division. While an information specialist, Stoff aided the treasurer and executive management staff in data collection and analysis, which led to a restructuring of existing programs.
He also created a system for coordinating citizen meter complaints and repair requests between the Parking Violations Bureau and the Parking Meter Services Division.
Stoff also was the Parking Division’s court and traffic administrator from 1999-2002 and administrator of permit parking from 1996-99.
