Description

Henok Tesfaye
Henok Tesfaye, an Ethiopian immigrant to the US, started in the parking business with just himself and a few family members as employees.

Now he manages some of the largest car parks in the Washington DC area, including the city's convention centre, baseball stadium and Reagan National Airport, with a staff of over 600.

Now an American citizen, he hopes to leave his car park empire to his children.

    HENOK are you happy by the death of evil melees zenawi? because if you are ethiopian you should celebrate the death of devil melees zenawi with your employee as a business person I have been celebrating the death of melees as the death of melees is the death of Hitler to Ethiopians. God bless ethiopia & America.
