    As the owner of Morrow Insurance & Associates, it is a pleasure to serve our community as a Chamber Business All-Star.  I would like to share the business experiences of the last forty years in sales, marketing and business ownership.  In particular, the last twenty-two years as I have owned an insurance agency for fourteen of those years.  Owning my agency has been a dream come true for me.  I feel that assisting other business owners in their accomplishments and also in areas   of opportunity for better results should be offered by a man who wants to see others grasp the opportunity to fulfill their business dreams.  I look forward to working with you.

    Jermain Parker - Banking Expert

    A life-long resident of North Carolina, Jermain attended UNC Charlotte and was a full scholarship athlete. He has nearly 20 years of business and commercial banking experience, with much of it tied to risk management, loan review, and making final loan decisions as a Sr. Credit Officer.  In 2016, Jermain was asked to make a transformative decision within the bank and become a Commercial Relationship Manager due to his extensive background of understanding exactly what was needed to help businesses achieve their financing and growth goals.  His ability to assess each company’s position and determine how best to suit their needs will have a lasting effect on the region, as his approach is not to simply sell products, but rather, offer a consultative attitude in helping businesses get the most out of their operations.  Jermain serves as a Capital Bank (formerly CommunityOne Bank)  representative throughout the I-77 corridor, and places a strong emphasis in helping Statesville reach its full potential.  Also, his local branch partner on Broad St. here in Statesville serves as a good resource to answer many questions related to personal banking, consumer loans and mortgages.  Capital Bank:  One bank, One team, One customer at a time.
