Reinventing the way agencies connect with their community

About Us

Our journey began with a vision to make parking more efficient by implementing powerful and adaptable enterprise mobility platforms through familiar, user-friendly technologies. That driving motivation propelled us to where we are today—the largest provider of mobile payment parking and transit software in North America. Our technology platforms are now installed in cities and universities from coast to coast, designed to reduce operational complexity and deliver intelligent data to improve decision making.


Bob Youakim, CEO

Bob co-founded Passport in 2010 to help public and private agencies drive efficiency and obtain value from the money spent trying to improve life in cities. Before Passport, Bob was a successful VP in Investment Banking. Bob combines his “never give up” mentality with his vast experience in business development, finance, and operations to navigate the company to its leading market position. He is frequently invited to speak on parking, transit, and venture capital. Bob holds a B.S. degree from the University of Illinois and an MBA from Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Management. Bob is also a CPA. Outside of Passport, he loves being silly with his wife and four children and enjoys flying planes as a pilot.



Khristian Gutierrez, CBDO

Khristian demonstrates daily that hard work can be really fun and that success is more achievable with a talented team who shares the same vision. He’s scaled Passport’s business development team into an industry powerhouse through a highly aligned and cohesive go-to-market strategy including sales, marketing, and software implementation. Prior to Passport, Khristian served as an Analyst in Investment Banking. Khristian received his M.S.F. from the Hough Graduate School of Business at the University of Florida where he also received his B.S. degree from the Warrington College of Business Administration. Beyond Passport, Khristian enjoys a strong Jeopardy match with his Goldendoodle, Gary.



Brad Powers, CTO

Brad brings over a decade of experience in designing, building, and deploying highly scalable enterprise applications. He spearheads the company’s technology initiatives and oversees the development process. Prior to Passport, Brad was the Solution Architect at Verian where he was instrumental in building the Operations and Development groups within the company. He also led the largest P2P implementation to date for the United States Postal Service. Brad received his B.S. from Arizona State University. When Brad’s not at the office, he’s trying to figure out how to blend his hobbies of working out, antiquing, and technology.



Michael Scully, CPO

“Scully” leads Passport’s product, marketing, and design.  With deep domain experience in mobile, advanced marketing analytics, and product development, he pushes us to reimagine the experience of modern transit and parking.  Prior to Passport, Scully held leadership roles at Virgin Mobile, Nokia, 2ergo/SoundBite (now part of Genesys), and Skookum.  Scully holds a BSBA in Management Information Systems from the University of Central Florida, a Specialization in Data Science from Johns Hopkins University, and an MBA from the Yale School of Management in both Marketing and Strategy.
