I feel it’s imperative to continue to hire the industry’s brightest, and to develop opportunities for them to grow their careers within our company. I’m proud to lead a team of such high-performing individuals, and I hope to further the direction that Dave Cyr started 15 years ago. The Parrish mission is a focus on good stewardship, while also challenging ourselves each day to provide our customers with the highest level of service and value.” Smith holds a Bachelor of Science in Construction Management from the former Southern Polytechnic State University, now known as Kennesaw State University.
