THE PARKER CENTER STORY AND VISION

Jim Parker served many closely held and family-operated enterprises that make up the bedrock of their communities in New Mexico. During his long career as a business lawyer, he became intimately aware of the unique challenges and opportunities for families who operate a business. Jim Parker’s passion and dedication to his clients and their impact on New Mexico led to the development of Parker Center.


The UNM Anderson Parker Center for Family Business is the premier resource for family businesses in New Mexico for planning, managing, and growing sustainable family businesses. Educational symposiums and interactive programs offer family members unique opportunities to benefit from the collective wisdom of successful business owners and professionals, in an atmosphere that encourages open discussion and exchange of ideas. UNM Anderson Parker Center for Family Business programs are designed to address the unique concerns of family business owners and managers including leadership, succession planning, conflict resolution and complex legal and financial challenges. The UNM Anderson Parker Center for Family Business provides education and resources to support our community of New Mexico family-run enterprises.
