Mike Parks

Born in Western Illinois, Mike has Midwest roots and values going back many generations. His Grandfather was a farmer and his Granddad was a blacksmith so it seemed like a natural fit to work in the hands-on construction industry. Mike began his home remodeling and construction career doing odd jobs as a kid for family and friends in their construction projects.

Mike attended Culver-Stockton College where he earned his Bachelor’s of Science degree in Business Administration and Economics and a specialized diploma in business from the University of Wisconsin, in finance.


He began his career as an office manager and he worked his way up through multiple industries including trucking, banking and manufacturing. His professional accomplishments for more than 10 years have been laser focused on the construction industry, and furthering his education in taking architectural studies and business operations in construction. He has worked on diverse residential and commercial projects in a variety of positions that include carpenter, project manager, project superintendent, divisional lead for a commercial developer, and now a business owner.


Mike and his wife Melinda have one child who continues to amaze them daily with her outstanding abilities and personality. They are all active at Old Mission United Methodist Church where Mike has been involved in a mission in Tlancualpican, Puebla, Mexico to serve as a missionary to the "GYTTE" program.
