Leadership Team

Bryce Parrish - President

Bryce was born and raised in Chesapeake, VA, with substantial family roots in Raleigh, NC. He attended the University of Mary Washington where he played on the varsity tennis team while earning a B.A. in Business Administration and a minor in Economics. After graduation, he ventured up to the Northeast where he worked as a corporate strategy consultant for an investment management firm, The Vanguard Group, located outside of Philadelphia. With his immediate family moving back to Raleigh, he too felt my calling to get back to his southern roots and spend the next two years realizing a lifelong dream: attending the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and becoming a Tar Heel through and through. Bryce is currently pursuing a Marketing concentration and Entrepreneurship enrichment.

Thomas Dexter - VP of Learning & Development

After spending the majority of his primitive years in West Virginia, Tommy realized that he really liked the sun and moved to Florida. He earned his bachelor’s degree in Finance from the University of Central Florida and then worked for two years in Risk and Compliance at Citibank in Tampa. He then decided that going to school was more fun than working so he accepted an offer to attend UNC Kenan-Flagler and pursue a Corporate Finance concentration. In addition to being a model student and great friend, Tommy is also the streakiest 3 point shooter in UNC intramural history.
