LEGO's Gomes is Hartford's new parking chief

Armindo Gomes

Armindo Gomes, a Hartford native and former executive at LEGO in Enfield, is the city's new parking czar.

The Hartford Parking Authority said Wednesday Grimes succeeds interim CEO Michael DesRoches, who took over temporarily following last November's departure after four years of former HPA CEO Eric Boone. Boone is now vice president with healthcare consultancy Qualidigm.

"Armindo Gomes has a remarkable combination of management experience and collaboration skills that will enable him to take this organization to the next level of continuous improvement, by providing parking solutions that support employment, visitation and economic development in the city of Hartford," HPA Chair William R. Breetz said in a statement.

Gomes spent nine years at LEGO, most recently as head of North American operations for its education division.

He has a B.S. from Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, and his supply chain management (SCM) professional certification from the Logistics Institute at Georgia Institute of Technology. He is a Hartford native and currently resides in Suffield.

CORRECTION: An earlier version misspelled Gomes last name in several places.
