As the owner and CEO of Parker Management Group, Vincent has used his collection of companies to help revitalize Detroit and create equity and opportunity in construction management. Vincent owns and operates Parker-Jones Junk Removal, Parker-Jones Landscaping, PMG Investment Group, and BCMP Development Group.

Vincent works to make a continuous impact throughout metro Detroit by improving neighborhoods, turning vacant properties into beautiful homes, and creating a better community and happier residents. His companies create opportunities for people interested in learning skilled trades and helping to rebuild the city — particularly for those from marginalized backgrounds — and he mentors aspiring entrepreneurs interested in building their own businesses.

He has hosted a networking event on CMU’s downtown Detroit campus, and he offers discounts on projects and services to CMU alumni.

Vincent credits Gearup, CMU’s multicultural and diversity office, and Pathways with helping him polish his professionalism — something he says he still gets compliments on to this day.
