Get Acquainted : Alexander Parker, Administrative Assistant
Alexander Parker is a relatively recent addition to the Pro QC team in North America. In an effort to support regional growth, he was added as an Administrative Assistant in January and tasked with responsibilities that include resource management, marketing and general sales support.
When asked what he enjoys the most about working with Pro QC so far, Alexander indicates that he “really enjoys the diverse team that works together daily from all different regions of the world.” He added that he “also likes the personal atmosphere of the office,” in which he refers to the new Tampa, Florida location opened in October of last year.
Alexander’s background is impressive, including a B.A. in International Affairs from the University of South Florida. Conversant in Mandarin, he has participated in multiple trips to China during his undergraduate years making him particularly comfortable within international business environments. A lifelong learner, he is currently pursuing studies in economics and continues to work on improving his language abilities.
Prior to joining Pro QC, Alexander took the initiative to work at a local Chinese supermarket to refine his Mandarin skills and also worked as a cultural attaché and events coordinator at the university international student center. In addition, he has market research experience from a prior position at Nielsen.
When he’s not supporting Pro QC, Alexander enjoys playing drums and “any kind of percussion instrument.” With over fifteen years of experience, he has played in several bands and has participated in various concerts, competitions and fundraisers. He continues to play with friends and at events whenever he has the opportunity.
Of course, Alexander also enjoys travelling and studying various cultures, whether it be abroad or nearby cities and towns. He currently lives in Tampa surrounded by family that includes his mother, grandmother, a rescue kitty and two loyal and intelligent Chihuahuas named Harlee and Hank. He’s also a “Big Brother” to a local high school student that he has had the pleasure of watching grow up over the last several years.
The North America team feels very fortunate to have Alexander, and we look forward to his continued growth within the organization.
