One of South Florida’s premier residential and commercial security companies, Marksman Security Corporation, has now opened a sister company, Parksman Parking, LLC. Marksman Security Corporation was founded in 2003, and now serves over 160 locations throughout South Florida with a team of over 1,200 employees. Their clients include Boca Raton Executive Airport, Cinemark Theatres, Vi at Aventura, Turnberry on the Green, Alaqua, Artech, The Peninsula, all seven Trump Towers and Sayan.
When the owners of Marksman, Mark Radi and Ezekiel Kaufman, added veteran professional Ben Launerts to their team in 2009, they began to reap the benefits of this 20-year industry veteran. Launerts was previously Director of Operations and Vice President of Marketing at Park One and prior to that was Director of Valet and Transportation for Williams Island and Regional Manager for USA Parking Systems.
With Launerts’ tremendous experience in the valet parking industry, it was a natural progression for Marksman Security to extend their services by creating Parksman Parking, with Launerts serving as President and Managing Partner. The community understood and appreciated the team approach, combining 24-hour security supervision with 24-hour valet and parking management, and has embraced Parksman with open arms.
Parksman recently acquired a local valet company and has already started operations at several luxury locations in South Florida, including Sole on the Ocean Hotel and Resort, Ocean Four Condominium and King David Condominium in Sunny Isles Beach.
Ben Launerts is a well-recognized and respected businessleader in South Florida, not only known for his business acumen, but also known as someone who continually ‘gives back’ to his community. He serves as Fundraising Chair for the Academy of Hospitality & Tourism at 11 Miami – Dade County schools including Alonzo & Tracy Mourning Senior High School, is a Board Member of the Aventura Marketing Council and Pillar Board Member of the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce . Launerts is also very involved with the Department of Defense, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve, and has been working closely with them to hire returning members of the military.
