Nesbitt is one of Barack Obamas closest friends...During the 2008 presidential campaign, Nesbitt became Obamas campaign treasurer.
Nesbitt started The Parking Spot, a lucrative airport satellite-parking company that is recognizable from its large yellow buses covered with black spots. Nesbitt started the company with financial backing from Penny Pritzker, the CEO of Pritzker Realty Group.

Not ironically, it was Pritzker money that financed Nesbitt’s successful startup of The Parking Spot.
As President Obama’s national finance chairwoman for Obama’s 2008 campaign, Pritzker raised a record $750 million through her deep roots in the Chicago donor community.
