In his new role, Parsons will lead the company’s operations at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Hancock County, Miss., and the Michoud Assembly Facility in New Orleans, La.

Parsons began his career at NASA as an aerospace engineer at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. Since then, he held a number of positions of increasing responsibility, including Johnson Space Center deputy director, director of Stennis Space Center, and Kennedy Space Center director, the company said in a release.
