As President of cityCURRENT, Park directs the team of more than 75 businesses, including some of the world’s largest employers, like FedEx, AutoZone, ServiceMaster, and Smith & Nephew, that host an array of media and more than 150 events each year to enrich and impact the community.
Under his leadership, cityCURRENT, formerly known as the Lipscomb Pitts Breakfast Club, quickly transformed from a small, simple business networking group, hosting only a handful of events, into a powerful team of businesses now recognized internationally as an innovator in corporate philanthropy, social entrepreneurialism, and collective impact.

He is author of the books, Giving Back with Purpose: fueling growth through community involvement, released by Main Street Books in December 2013; and Giving for Growth: Achieving Success Through Giving Back, released by Main Street Books in November 2015. Proceeds from both books benefit youth literacy programs in the Mid-South.

As a guest speaker, Park regularly keynotes events, leads panel discussions, and talks to groups about our model, shifts in corporate philanthropy, how giving leads to growth, cause marketing, and personal branding.
