Prior to joining FirstService Residential, he was the president of Red Rock Financial Services, a Las Vegas-based collections agency specializing in serving the unique needs of homeowners associations (HOAs). Parker also served as chief operating officer for Silver State Mortgage, where he managed operations for the $4.5 billion national mortgage bank.
He received his bachelor’s degree from Brigham Young University. Parker has volunteered with the Boy Scouts of America for many years and is an Eagle Scout.
