Parsec is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year! It is a remarkable achievement – and we have you, our clients, to thank for it.
It is hard to believe that all this began in 1980. I doubt many of you would pick that year as the time to start a business. Interest rates were around 16 percent. Unemployment was high. The country was in the midst of a recession.
It was in this environment that Bart Boyer decided to move from Minnesota to Asheville and start an investment management firm. Parsec’s first office was in the lower level of his home. Now, we have expanded to every floor in the building we occupy in downtown Asheville. We have an office in Charlotte.
I am fortunate enough to have been here for almost 18 of those years. I have witnessed the remarkable changes and growth our firm has experienced. In the upcoming newsletter, I will share some stories with you about our journey. Please stay tuned!
