Alejandra Argudin: Takes reins of Miami Parking Authority in pandemic fight
For Alejandra “Alex” Argudin, it’s always been about hard work.
From her time at the City of Miami to her rise up the ranks of the Miami Parking Authority, she says she’s always focused on giving it her all.
Shortly before life came to a standstill, she was appointed parking authority CEO, tasked with, among many other things, managing and developing off-street and on-street parking in the City of Miami.
“I know it comes with great responsibility,” she says, “especially today with this unprecedented pandemic, we have to pivot and contribute in any way we can to the community to assist through the recovery phase.”
Now at the top, Mrs. Argudin is balancing all the challenges related to the pandemic while also envisioning the next steps for the authority, which she says has proven itself a trailblazer in the industry.
“As the first woman in six decades to have this position,” she said. “I vow to work hard and to continue to meet and exceed the vision of the authority.”
Mrs. Argudin joined Miami Today reporter Gabriel Poblete for a phone call.
