Parker announced today that Dr. Fabrizio Mancini is retiring from his position as President of Parker University and Parker Seminars. Dr. Mancini made this decision to allow for time to pursue other interests, including public speaking and media efforts to promote chiropractic and his recently published book, and future speaking and media opportunities to promote the health and wellness revolution he is so passionate about leading.
Under Dr. Mancini's leadership, Parker University and Parker Seminars have grown and flourished well beyond any of the expectations held by the Parker Board of Trustees nearly 13 years ago. Since his appointment, the Parker brand has become synonymous with high-quality education and the foundational principles that define chiropractic today. Under his care, Parker has grown into one of the leading chiropractic institutions in the world, with nearly 6,500 alumni now proudly claiming Parker as their institution of choice. In addition to his impact on the university, Dr. Mancini has gladly accepted the role as one of the most influential leaders in the profession, appearing on television, the Parker Seminars stage, in print, as an author, a speaker, and any other opportunity he is given to spread the chiropractic message and raise awareness of the health benefits of regular care.
He leaves the university well-positioned for future growth, with new academic programs designed to compliment chiropractic ready for introduction in January 2013, a full class of incoming chiropractic students for the fall 2012 trimester, and a record setting crowd of attendees set to attend Parker Seminars Toronto next month.
Dr. Mancini will work with Parker through November 30, 2012, until a new president can be identified and hired. A presidential search committee has been formed by the Parker Board of Trustees to begin the search immediately. This transitional period will allow him to play a role in two major upcoming events: Parker Seminars Toronto (September 20-22) and Parker University Homecoming (October 26-28).
The Parker University Board of Trustees would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Mancini for his compassionate dedication to Parker and wish him well in his future endeavors. The board recognizes his impact on Parker and the chiropractic profession, an impact that will continue for many years to come.
