Parker Karnan, the founder of Karnan Associates, works closely with presidents and owners of businesses to help them achieve what they want. For seventeen years Parker has worked with hundreds of business owners and over time has learned some of the inherent challenges that entrepreneurs face as they work to create a thriving business. Through his asset assessment process, Parker identifies the genuine needs of his clients and then establishes a plan to meet those needs.
The focus is on implementation, execution, and results. Unlike many typical consulting services, Karnan Associates does not engage in projects or offer advice. A business engagement with Karnan Associates is one designed to offer long term benefit to the overall business health of an organization, regardless of the size of the business.
Parker currently resides in Woodinvale, WA, with his wife Miquette and their three children.
