“I’ve followed Thomas Park’s growth from the start, and I believe in the longevity that EJ and Alex have identified in the asset class,” Parker said. “I look forward to working with the team to build on Thomas Park’s reputation as responsive and creative contract makers.”

Parker serves on the board of Royco Properties and the Chevy Chase Land Company and teaches graduate-level real estate courses at Johns Hopkins University and Georgetown University.
