Chris Parsons, BBA
A Little About our Managing Director
Having started my first company (a lawn maintenance company) complete with my first business cards at the age of 12, then incorporating my next company (an entertainment management company) as a teenager I realized I had a passion for business. From there I decided to do my Bachelors in Business Administration (BBA) with a focus in Entrepreneurial Leadership.
Following that I managed a financial planning portfolio prior to joining a startup in 2005 where during my time there I helped to grow sales to $3.5 million and managed a $1 million payroll. Wearing multiple hats I was responsible for everything from HR to Accounting to Sales and Production.
In 2009 my wife and I took over a local event planning company, incorporated Rare Affairs Event Management Inc. and expanded the company to produce corporate events across Canada. With our incredible team we were named the 2015 Small Business of the Year and were awarded the 2019 Community Impact Award by the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce. We also received the 2019 Best Event Planning Company in Metro Vancouver Award by Lux Life Magazine.
Helping friends and clients over the years grow their businesses, tackle problems, implement strategies with my diverse background I've had people refer to me as a "Corporate Handyman". I love seeing businesses succeed and I could step in and assist them with a variety of projects and initiatives. From that, Rare Solutions was born!
