Team History

Raymond D. Church and Paul K. Parson founded The Church/Parson Investment Group in 2005. In 2017, Raymond retired from the firm after 12 years with the group and nearly 34 years in the financial service industry. Though we were sad to see him go, he left a legacy on our investment group that can still be felt today. Upon Raymond’s retirement, the group officially became known as The Parson Investment Group.


Today, Paul K. Parson, CIMA® leads the investment group as the Senior Vice President- Investments.
