GREENVILLE, SC – The Parker Group, a full-service real estate and development group headquartered in Greenville, announced today the addition of four new team members as part of the company’s vision for future growth.
“These new positions will play a vital role as The Parker Group continues to expand its line of services to focus more on Greenville investments and projects in the surrounding areas,” said Drew Parker, founder of The Parker Group. “We are always looking for new ways to grow the Upstate. With recently announced projects like the new city center in Mauldin, there’s nothing our team can’t do.”
New hires include Chris Schweighart as VP of Commercial Brokerage, Matt Alexander as VP of Development Operations, Bryan Beal as VP of Capital Markets and Investor Relations, and Kristen Fulfer as Interior Designer and Project Coordinator.

He taught all levels of Spanish and managed various businesses, including an international travel program, at a college preparatory school in Southern California.
