With a rich background that merges intellectual analysis, cultivated creativity, and operational excellence, Cole has played a leading role in the transformation of businesses across a variety of industries.

An Ivy League graduate from Cornell University, Cole holds a degree in Applied Economics & Management with a specialization in Marketing & Entrepreneurship. Born in Atlanta, GA but raised in Valdosta, GA, his academic journey began in the Lowndes County school system and ended after his time as a student-athlete at Cornell, where he was forced to balance the demands of collegiate football alongside arduous academic expectations. This experience instilled in him a unique blend of rigorous discipline, strategic thinking, and a growth mindset that he carried into his professional endeavors.

In his early career, Cole served as Chief Operating Officer of a regional marketing agency, which then led to his position as Marketing Director for Butler Automotive Group. With this escalating knowledge and experience with what it takes to run and grow businesses that vary in industry and size, in 2017, Cole founded Parkstone. Parkstone began as his own marketing agency – Parkstone Marketing – but quickly grew to be a holding company for a variety of start ups and acquisitions. Cole continues to serve as CEO and Chairman of its Board to this day.

At Parkstone Financial – which was an expansion under the Parkstone umbrella in 2023 – Cole oversees the accounting and finance, branding and marketing, and compliance and operations, driving the company’s vision of providing impactful investments. His role is to ensure proper internal stewardship of company systems and funds while also ensuring that Parkstone Financial consistently represents itself and its stakeholders externally in alignment with Parkstone values.

Cole has been married to his high school sweetheart, Gabi, since 2015. They have two beautiful children: Bryce, born in 2020, and Kennedy, born in 2023. They can often be found roaming the golf course and streets of Kinderlou Forest, where they reside.
