Jonesboro Chamber Member Highlights: Charlie Parker
Submitted by Chamber Blogger on Wed, 08/05/2015 - 15:18
With its U.S. Headquarters in Jonesboro, Arkansas, JK North America has a strong U.S. presence and owns and operates a 135,000 square foot state-of-the-art distribution facility that utilizes leading edge technology. At the head of Information Technology is Charlie Parker.
Charlie joined the Chamber in 2011 as a way to network with other technology minded members. The development of the new Technology and Innovations Committee has allowed just that. “This group allows me to meet and discuss technology in the Jonesboro area. I am encouraged to discover, implement and maintain new ideas all the time with a group of likeminded people. Having a network of peers allows me to share common frustrations and recommend suitable solutions. It also allows me to purchase locally whenever possible.”
The other “perk” that came with Charlie’s job was a beautiful wife. This romance blossomed while Lauren also worked at JK. Now he and Lauren and their children enjoy time downtown, at festivals and cheering on the kids at sporting events.
We’re proud to have Charlie and JK as a member of the Jonesboro Regional Chamber of Commerce.
