Parker Group President and Founder Honored as 2024 WISF Power 100 Honoree

Portland, Ore. –  March 8, 2024 — Parker Group, a leading provider of integrated engineering services and technologies, announced today that President and Founder Valerie Parker has been selected as a 2024 Women in Security Forum Power 100 honoree. This recognition celebrates Parker’s dedication to the community, outstanding leadership, and contributions to the security industry. 

Each year, the Security Industry Association’s Women in Security Forum recognizes the exceptional contributions of 100 women in various segments of the security field through the Power 100 awards. The women recognized demonstrate exemplary leadership, serve as inspiring role models for other women in the industry, and make significant impacts within their organizations and the security landscape. The program encourages women within the industry to push boundaries, helping propel the market forward with their efforts. 

In 1998, Valerie Parker founded Parker Group, steering the company to become a leader in national defense through innovative technology, significantly contributing to AV solutions for real-time, synchronized mission data distribution. Parker exemplifies authentic leadership and how a heartfelt commitment to excellence can inspire change and make a meaningful difference.

Parker is always seeking ways to give back to those around her, and her involvement with Operation Spartan Flag, an organization helping to combat the mental health crisis among veterans in Oregon, displays just that. Parker’s dedication to this cause is driven by a belief in the power of community.

“I am so humbled by this recognition and truly grateful to be recognized by my peers in the security industry,” she said. “Parker Group proudly carries the title, WOSB (Woman-Owned Small Business). Being named an honoree recognizes the work I and so many other amazing women in this industry are accomplishing. This program serves as a beaming light for future generations of women in this industry. ” 

WISF Power 100 honorees will gather on Friday, April 12, 2024, at ISC West 2024, to celebrate this year’s recipients and their accomplishments.
