Jeffrey Parker joined JK Moving Services in 2002 as a safety coordinator. As his career developed, his focus has never wavered from promoting a culture of safety throughout the enterprise. Parker’s main areas of accountability include workplace safety, DOT compliance, workers’ compensation, insurance, driver training, and facilities.
Under Parker’s leadership, the Safety & Compliance department has grown in capabilities and expertise, and has been honored with three consecutive Fleet Safety Awards from the American Moving & Storage Association. JK’s safety achievements have also been recognized by the company’s insurance group.
Parker’s primary goal is to ensure that every employee returns home safely at the end of their workday. From the pre-screening and hiring process, driver orientation, training, and on-the-job performance monitoring, safety is a key component to achieving that goal.
Prior to JK, Parker worked in logistics and with USAA where he obtained a property and casualty insurance license. Both positions provided the building blocks to developing the safety program at JK.
Parker earned a B.S. in Business Management from George Mason University, and is also a licensed pilot. Additionally, Parker has completed industry-related coursework via OSHA and the North American Transportation Institute (NATMI) for safety and DOT compliance. Parker is currently working toward his CRM (Certified Risk Manager) designation.
