A reception was held earlier this month honoring the Performing Arts Center Trust’s Founding Chair Parker Thomson, who retired from the Board of Directors after more than 20 years of service. Former and current Board members gathered and thanked Mr. Thomson for his years of tireless dedication and unwavering perseverance.  Mr. Thomson was the first Chairman of the Performing Arts Center Trust’s Board of Directors and served faithfully on the Board for over 20 years. Among the accolades bestowed upon Mr. Thomson were a Certificate of Congressional Recognition from Senator Bill Nelson, a congratulatory letter from Governor Charlie Crist and a resolution by the Miami-Dade County Board of Commissioners declaring September 28, 2010 “Parker Thomson Day.” “Due to his leadership, the cultural landscape of Miami-Dade County has been forever transformed,” stated Valerie Riles, the Center’s Vice President of Board and Government Relations.

One of our community’s most brilliant lawyers, Mr. Thomson is a Partner at Hogan and Lovells and earlier this year he was named as one of Florida’s Super Lawyers by Law and Politics.
