The Ronald McDonald House in Houston welcomes John Parsley to the Executive Board

Colliers International is pleased to announce John Parsley, Principal and Director at the Houston office as one of the newest members to the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) executive board at the Houston, Texas location. 

John started in commercial real estate over 22 years ago and has been involved in all phases of the industry. A native Houstonian, he returned to Houston in 1992 after spending over 10 years as a Sales Manager in the Midwest, Northeast & Southwest USA for commercial building products division of two Fortune 100 companies – Armstrong World Industries and the General Electric Corporation. 

John has been one of Colliers’ Top 10 Producers consistently throughout his career and was named as a “Heavy Hitter” by the Houston Business Journal. He previously served as the President of the Houston Office Leasing Brokers Association (HOLBA) and in 2003 earned his SIOR designation from the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors.
 
According to the Ronald McDonald House, in September 2018 they unveiled their newly-renovated flagship facility, Holcombe House. The $24.5 million renovation and expansion included a new two-story tower containing 20 additional bedrooms, increasing its capacity by 40%. Updates were made to all critical infrastructure, including HVAC, mechanical, electrical and plumbing; a revamp of the first floor and atrium; and more. The renovation was supported by the Behind Every Door capital campaign and helped further RMH Houston’s mission to serve families of children with life-threatening illnesses receiving treatment in the Texas Medical Center.
