Bach Parker

Vice President of Marketing

Bach Parker grew up in rural Montana and moved to Minnesota to attend St. John’s University. After graduating in 2004, he spent 2 years working for a startup pharmaceutical company and then went on to work in the marketing industry for 11 years. He became the youngest member elected to serve on the Advertising Federation of Minnesota in 2006 as the Director of Sponsorship. In 2008, he worked as the Assistant Producer for the Advertising Ceremony called “The Show”,  which led to record participation (that record still stands today). He, and the rest of the production team, became the only Minnesota entity to win a 2009 International Echo Award given out by Jay Leno. In 2012, he wrote the featured summer case study, which was published and distributed nationally by the National Newspaper Association (NAA) regarding Star Tribune’s growing circulation. In 2013, Bach was a recipient of the inaugural Twin Cities’ “32 Under 32” Award, and in 2014, Bach conducted a national webinar for the National Newspaper Association titled “Effective Direct Response Programs to Build Audience” to several hundred circulation executives from around the country. 

Why Did You Choose Northstar Behavioral Health?

After more than a decade of working in the marketing field, I decided to shift my life-work to something that better reflected my upbringing. I joined Northstar Behavioral Health in order to give back to the community, work in an industry that could use my skill set, and most importantly, help those with the greatest need- the individuals in the throes of addiction.
