Silverwind Enterprises partners Margaret and Doug Phares purchased the Professional Association of Résumé Writers & Career Coaches (PARW/CC). Initially founded in 1990 by sellers Frank and Vicki Fox, PARW/CC boasts more than 1,700 members who share professional insights to help hone the skills of all association members. It is the oldest and largest association serving members in the resume writing and career coaching industry. PARW/CC has been expanding internationally and now has members in more than 20 countries. Their certifications and education programs have set the standard for nearly 30 years, and the Silverwind team is confident that this trend will continue.
Silverwind operates as a business service provider, and this marks their second acquisition in the St. Pete area. Owner and founder Margaret Phares will take point as PARW/CC’s new Executive Director. When asked what her plans were for the new business, the St.Pete local responded:
“There’s already a great team of industry leaders committed to the integrity and growth of the profession in place, so I want to help them continue to be successful. We intend to keep the PARW/CC headquartered in St. Petersburg and be a good partner to the city.”
