Tapping into a network to obtain the next career venture is often the case for most successful professionals, and Bobby Ralston is no exception. In 2010, Bobby Ralston found himself hanging out in Buckhead with his friends from University of West Georgia and cross country team. Bobby’s network operated at The Cheese Cake Factory in Buckhead, and this is where Bobby Ralston would start his career at AmeriPark.
Over the next 7 years, Bobby would move up the ranks to Regional Manager in the Memphis and Tunica market. Bobby credits his success to AmeriPark’s support, “AmeriPark values its employees and understands the importance of promoting from within. My success is due to the high level of support I have received from those around me at AmeriPark. I have been given the opportunity to grow within our company and people like Travis Larrison, Scot Fletcher, and Mark Hancher (too many more to list) have always been able to teach and support me over the years. At times, this job can be stressful and tiring, but when everyone around you is motivated to accomplish the same goal of how to best serve our clients and guests, it is always a very fun and rewarding job.”
Bobby’s position at AmeriPark has accelerated to managing properties that consist of FedExForum, home of the Memphis Grizzlies, 2 hospitals, 2 hotels, and 3 casinos, while relying on five Senior Operations Managers. With Bobby’s relocation to Memphis he is leaving past properties behind. However, Travis Larrison, Reginal Vice President, is a witness to his successful rapport, “The best thing to say about Bobby is how much he will be missed. As I drove around to several of his lots, his Operations Managers and Valets were upset to see him leave but knew he would do a good job. He is very highly respected out on the lots!”
When Bobby isn’t at work, he can be found with his wife, Erin, spending their waking hours watching over six month old daughter, Penelope, who is growing and learning each day. They are both huge Atlanta Braves and Atlanta Falcons fans, but are learning to become Memphis Grizzlies fans.
Thank you Bobby Ralston for all of your hard work and dedication to AmeriPark and Citizens Lanier Holdings! #love2park
