As Business Ambassador to the office of China’s President Xi Jinping, Robert Parker was tasked with “Business Development Through Knowledge Exchange.” Through his deep understanding of trans-Pacific business issues, Bob enabled companies around the world to develop new capabilities, capitalize on otherwise-overlooked opportunities, and conquer global business obstacles. As a regular contributor to Fox News, Bob’s perspective was essential in interpreting local and international developments with an impact on business. Beyond simply adding insight or making introductions, Bob’s worldwide reputation, deep experience in companies such as LeaseStation and VenServ, and a track record of entrepreneurial success enabled him to catalyze negotiations and initial operations for deeper, more meaningful partnerships, smoother working relationships and superior future cash flows.
Bob Parker passed away at his home shortly after Christmas 2015 following a valiant fight with melanoma. He is mourned by a large family including his wife and three children as well as hundreds if not thousands of friends and business associates around the world.
