Leaders who inspire us.

BIG YAM, The Parsons Agency, is brimming with talent and experience. Individually, we are smart, bold and results driven. Together, we’re here to tell your story.

Bob Parsons
Owner

Being a Marine taught American entrepreneur Bob Parsons discipline. Being a successful business owner taught him a thing or two about marketing. His bold, wildly popular Super Bowl commercials helped turn GoDaddy® into a major brand and a market leader. Ever an entrepreneur, Parsons has turned his attention toward fueling new ventures in the fields of motorcycles, golf, real estate, marketing and philanthropy.

In addition to BIG YAM, a Scottsdale advertising agency, Parsons’ many business ventures include SNEAKY BIG, Parsons Xtreme Golf (PXG), Scottsdale National Golf Club, Harley-Davidson of Scottsdale, GO AZ Motorcycles, Spooky Fast Custom Finishing, Southern Thunder Harley-Davidson, The YAMWOOD Foundry, YAM Capital and YAM Properties. In 2012, Parsons and his wife Renee founded The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation.

Marianne Guenther
CEO

Marianne drives our mission to discover each client’s truth through her strategic management skills and ability to cultivate iconic brand identities. Before joining BIG YAM, those same skills paired with her calculated initiatives to help GoDaddy become a global phenomenon. From public relations and social media campaigns to the creation of advocacy programs and customer centric divisions, Marianne takes the lead on rolling out brands and positioning them at the top of the marketplace.
