This fall Parker will enroll in an MBA program at the University of Texas, with a focus on Latin American enterprise. His dedication to Latin America began when he first travelled to Mexico with his parents as a child. “I was enchanted by the warm and friendly people who had a great sense of history and their place in it,” he recalls. “From its architecture to the laid-back, family-oriented lifestyle, Mexico appealed to me on every level. I knew as an adolescent that my life and career would somehow involve this charming, yet dynamic place.”
Parker felt that no other region in the world can parallel the charm, style and history found in Latin America, while simultaneously demonstrating such extreme political and economic challenges. In 2008 he picked up his first copy of Americas Quarterly at a bookstore, and “found the articles to be concise and well-written, offering a variety of viewpoints from top scholars and policymakers on topics that were not covered in other publications.” Now AQ has become a must-read publication for him, offering not only a deeper understanding of the region, but also “a leg up on my competition.”
We congratulate Scott Parker and hope that we continue to serve our readers with the same passion they look forward to in each issue of Americas Quarterly.
