In 1984 Ralph Parsons founded Parsons Engineering in Brentwood, TN. Forgoing the traditional document production method by drafters; he built a team of highly qualified engineers and designers. Utilizing engineers to design and draft, the documents are completed faster and cleaner. In 2000 Parsons Engineering incorporated. We continue to provide the same level of service which turned a small company into one of the largest electrical-only consulting engineering firms in the Nashville area. Our team consists of three licensed principles, one engineer in training, and six degreed designers.
Tony, as most folks know him, has been with us since 1996 and is currently the President or as some of us address him, El Presidente.
It’s not uncommon to see a line forming outside his office with eager employees waiting to have questions answered and assignments
given. Tony is the Jedi Master of consulting engineering. Once he leaves the office he is known by his four padawans as Daddy.
At home he uses Jedi mind tricks to convince the young padawans to pick up their toys, brush their teeth, and stop throwing things
in the house.
Rodney joined the crew in 1999 after obtaining his degree from TN Tech and has been working hard ever since. Rodney is a husband to a wonderful wife and a father to three awesome kids (a teenage son and twin teenage daughters). With three teenagers, there is never a lack of excitement or drama around the house. Rodney is an avid hunter and fisherman. When he’s not in the office, he enjoys spending time with his family in the woods and on the lake.
Ralph has been here from the beginning. Ralph is gradually moving into retirement but he still wields a red pencil without missing
a beat. He’s not in the office as frequently as he used to be since he has other important business to tend to: spending time with
all his grandsons, wood turning and keeping snakes away at the cabin.
In 2002 Jonathan decided it was time for a change. He traded-in an exciting, action packed career in the grocery business for a seat
of AutoCad and a mouse and never looked back. When Jonathan isn’t designing electrical systems or fighting computer gremlins, he
can be found spending time with his wife and two boys watching the VOLS.
Savanna jumped in with both feet in 2012. She has since made the move to a part time Parsons Engineering Designer so she could work
from home to be with her two precious kiddos. She has a passion for making time for work and being a homemaker for her husband
Sarah joined the pack in 2012 and is swiftly becoming the 3D cad master. Sarah enjoys hunting and shooting and is able to hone some
of those skills while at the office. She practices her hunter’s observation skills on the flow of people past her desk to determine
the shortest wait time outside EL Presidente’s office and patience when someone sneaks ahead of her before she can get to his door.
Lori joined the group as Business Manager in 2009 after spending the previous seven years managing El Presidente and her four monkeys
full time on the home front. When she is not managing business matters she can still be found managing the monkeys. She enjoys
spending time with El Presidente, traveling, camping with the family, and dark chocolate (we cannot forget the dark chocolate!).
Tom joined Parsons in 2015 and easily took over the oldest employee position. Parsons has been able to teach this old dog some new
tricks but he still has a few of his own up his sleeve. Tom enjoys history, debating politics, watching sports and doing DIY home
In 2015 Kyle joined Parsons looking for a change. Kyle’s main focus is in parks, music venues, churches and arc flash studies. When
Kyle is not in the office, he enjoys playing softball, watching VOLS sporting events, and enjoying time with family.
In 2015 Dennis joined the team not long after relocating to Tennessee from the Baltimore / Washington metropolitan area. In pursuit of becoming an architect he implements his design skills and knowledge to the field of electrical engineering via AutoCAD and Revit. During his free time, if he’s not occupied with his saltwater tank, playing guitar, or traveling the country you typically can find him at a local Cars ‘N’ Coffee meet.
Damian joined the Parsons family in 2013 soon after a fateful cold call to Tony from a port-a-john on a cold winter day while working as a journeyman electrician for an electrical company in town. He decided to give up the work boots and the hard hat for a nice, warm desk job where he could use his field experience and his brain most days instead of his body. When Damian isn’t putting out fires for clients or designing assisted living facility and pumping station you can probably find him on the couch watching football, doing never ending homework, or spending time with his minion grandson.
