Herndon, VA | July 5, 2021– AFG Group, Inc. (AFG), a leading program, construction, and relocation management firm announces the retirement of Business Development Manager, Renee Parker.

As an employee of AFG since 2013, Renee provided both client development and project management support. She successfully expanded AFG’s presence in the Washington DC region, developing existing partnerships and introducing new opportunities to the firm. Most recently, Renee was tapped to lead the complex multi-year, multi-phased U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) Lease Management Project for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) at the 6700B Rockledge Drive Facility in Rockville, Maryland.

Renee was a dedicated volunteer with the Society of American Military Engineers Northern Virginia Post having served as the 2nd Vice President from 2000-2001, and Programs Director from 2014-2000.

Renee is moving to Florida to be closer to her grandchildren, and looking forward to continuing her volunteer work as a project manager building wells in the Dominican Republic with Water at Work Ministry and leading a community nutrition effort in Guatemala with Impacto Ministry.

“When hired, Renee was tasked with spreading the gospel of AFG among the business community. Seeing as how AFG has tripled its revenue since she was brought on, I would say she has been incredibly successful in accomplishing that mission. We thank Renee for her eight years of dedication and congratulate her on her retirement”
