John Parker

Director, Corporate Communications and Media

St. Louis, MO- John Parker has joined the St. Louis Development Corporation as the new Director of Corporate Communications and Media. With over 15 years of public and media relations, corporate communications, crisis communications and marketing experience, he has the skill and background to build the SLDC’s corporate communications and media strategy. 

Parker has worked with CEOs, executives and professional athletes and coaches to grow their personal and professional brands. His former company, Evolution Communications Group, which he operated for over 14 years helped a wide-range of organizations, companies, and not-for-profits tell their story and define their message. He is excited to do the same for SLDC. “St. Louis is my home and anything that I can do to help with the progress of this city, I am willing to do.”

Prior to launching his communications career, Parker was a 25-year college/professional football coach and an award-winning radio and television talk show host here in St. Louis. Through his former company, he has handled salary contract negotiations for a large number of college and professional coaches. He has worked in public relations and crisis communications with various cities across the country and with clients in both local and federal law enforcement. Remarkably his passion for sports is dwarfed by his desire to see St. Louis be all it can be. “I am truly excited to be part of the SLDC, an organization supporting this effort” said Parker.
