We Create The Future

Parsons congratulates Carey Smith on her appointment to President and Chief Executive Officer. As part of her first day, Carey released the letter below to our global workforce:


Earlier today, I assumed the position of president and chief executive officer, and with it the incredible responsibility to continue to deliver for our employees, customers, and investors. I’m honored by the opportunity to be our company’s seventh CEO, and grateful for the trust and confidence of our board and all of you. Today marks what will become a milestone in our bright future together as we continue our journey to transform Parsons into an industry leader in the defense, intelligence, and infrastructure markets.

I’ve had the privilege to be part of the team since 2016, including serving as your president and chief operating officer, where I’ve had the chance to work closely with you to deliver our customers’ critical missions. It’s your efforts, however—your dedication, talent, and innovation—that have taken us to where we are today and where we’re going.

We drive Parsons’ future. Over the next few months, I’m visiting our locations to hear directly from you and our customers to understand our priorities for what lies ahead. You’re closest to our work and the insights and expertise that will propel our high-purpose culture into tomorrow. Your voice matters—and I can’t wait to hear from you. 

As CEO, commitment to our customers and their missions will be imperative. Together, we’ll create the future of national security and global infrastructure to deliver a better world. Our worldwide integrated solutions ensure information dominance and smart infrastructure, and make the world safer, healthier, more connected, and more secure. By leveraging innovative technologies to operate at the speed of relevance, we’ll answer our customers’ most critical needs.

The integrated solutions and services that only we can deliver are increasingly important in a complex global security environment and a world of digital transformation. We’re uniquely positioned to bring together our expertise across the national security and infrastructure domains. We create the future. 

I’m eager to serve alongside you and do my part to help achieve our customers’ critical missions.

Thank you for all you do.

Carey Smith, President and CEO
