Angela Parsons is a Recruiting and Sales Executive that for the past decade has helped small to large companies make giant leaps in revenue and market share by maximizing their approach to sales. With several companies, she has revamped the sales process and strategy taking them to continuous triple digit yearly increases and priming them for sale.
After a very successful career as a collegiate Division I soccer player at Missouri State, Ms. Parsons went on to substantially increase the revenue and market share for CDR Assessment Group, a Leadership Development and Executive Coaching firm until its sale in 2012. Her next move successfully opened the Philadelphia Market for publicly traded company, Insperity, before taking on a Partnership and Chief Sales Officer role for one of her clients, Xelerate LLC, since 2015. Ms. Parsons has grown the company to over triple the size in both revenue and employee count in just over one year with recognition of her efforts demonstrated in being awarded the SmartCEO Executive Management Award in February of 2017.
Ms. Parsons sits on the board for several non-profits including Economics PA and The Center for Grieving Children and was crowned as Miss Teen Oklahoma in 1999 and Mrs. Pennsylvania in 2014.

Dave Silver is President/co-founder of Operation Yellow Ribbon of South Jersey (OYRSJ), a local nonprofit that sends care packages to US Service Members. In 2017, OYRSJ sent a group record 62,000 pounds of goodies and hygiene products in the form of morale boosting care packages. Additionally, OYRSJ partners with others to coordinate surprise “Rock Star” Welcome Home greetings for returning local Veterans.
Dave has never served in the Armed Forces but realizes how much sacrifice U.S. Service Members and their family members make and running OYRSJ is his way of showing his gratitude. He uses the very freedom they protect and provide to then turn and shower them with appreciation in the form of OYRSJ.
Dave currently spends roughly 25 hours a week running OYRSJ. Any free time outside of time spent with his wife (Deborah), 2 boys (Damien and Daniel) or working as a Business Analyst for TD Bank is consumed by OYRSJ.
In addition, other volunteering efforts outside of OYRSJ include being on the Evesham Township school board (2011-14), coordinating a holiday meals program (Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas), and volunteering for a local education foundation. Other efforts include fund-raising for other non-profits such as The Gift of Life Organ Donor Program, Given To Live and No Dogs Get Left Behind.
Past recognition for Dave’s community efforts include South Jersey Magazine’s 2016 “Man of the Year” Award, Burlington County’s 2015 “Community Service Award for Outstanding Volunteerism” and the South Jersey Volunteer Center’s “2014 Volunteer of the Year” award.
