Dear Friend of Parsons & Maxson, Inc.,

It is with great regret that we announce the closing of Parsons & Maxson, Inc. Our final day of operation is Friday, September 16, 2011.

Foremost, we feel deep gratitude for the wonderful relationships we have enjoyed with clients, suppliers, and employees for the last thirty years. We loved our work and always strove to do our very best for both the clients and employees. Because of this commitment, it is our desire to exit in the way we, as owners, operated…with openness and honesty.

P&M’s internal team of writers, graphic designers, and support staff is undoubtedly the best it’s ever been. Nevertheless, it is impossible for P&M to survive without a steady flow of business. Despite our tireless efforts over the past four years to retain a key salesperson to sustain and build upon the client relationships which have been the foundation of our success, once again we find ourselves at square one. After careful consideration, we have decided that the best course at this time is to close the business.

Our biggest concern now is P&M’s employees, and our focus is to guide this team of professionals to new positions. Should you have or know of opportunities to utilize our employees’ tremendous talent, please let us know.

If you have current projects within our agency, we will contact you within the next couple of days to discuss bringing those to a close. We look forward to a smooth transition for all involved. If you have questions, please call or email us.

Thank you for giving us a fabulous run.
