Parker Global Strategies today said that Michael Parker has joined the firm as president. In his new capacity, Parker will guide Parker Global’s strategic direction, lead the firm’s worldwide marketing initiatives and oversee the day-to-day operations, relieving Virginia Parker, his wife and founder of the firm, to concentrate more on the firm’s products and its clients.
