He is also a member of the TEAM EXCEL Board of Directors. 

Under his tutelage, the Flying Squirrels have consistently been at the top of the Eastern League in average and overall attendance during all eight years of existence. The Squirrels sustained success has been repeatedly acknowledged by the industry, most recently by being nominated for the prestigious John H. Johnson President's Award. The President's Award is Minor League Baseball's top award presented annually to honor the complete baseball franchise -- based on franchise stability, contributions to league stability, contributions to baseball in the community, and promotion of the baseball industry.

In 2013, Parney was awarded his second Eastern League Executive of the Year Award. He had previously been honored in 2004 while the General Manager of the Altoona Curve. On May 5, 2017, an ownership group, led by current Flying Squirrels CEO Lou DiBella, purchased the Montgomery Biscuits franchise and instilled Parney as team President.

After leading the Flying Squirrels to the 2010 Eastern League attendance title, Parney and the Squirrels saw an increase in average attendance during the 2011 regular season and were easily the top-draw during the 2011 EL postseason. For his efforts, and due to the team's success on the field and off, Parney was honored by Baseball America following the season with their top minor league award. He was named 2011 Baseball America Minor League Executive of the Year. The Flying Squirrels now boast the distinction of having two recipients of the award in their front office, as Chuck Domino was also recognized with the award in 2003 while with the Reading Phillies. Parney followed up his award-winning season by guiding the franchise to their second overall Eastern League attendance crown in 2012.

With his leadership, the franchise completed a 1.5 million dollar renovation of The Diamond, where they opened Eastern League play in 2010.

With "Parney" at the helm, the Flying Squirrels led the Eastern League in both overall and average attendance, welcoming 463,842 (6,626) fans to The Diamond. Through innovative marketing and branding initiatives, the club posted record-breaking merchandise sales, and was awarded Logo of the Year for 2010 by Ballpark Digest. Upon the completion of their inaugural season, the franchise was recognized as the Richmond Business of the Year by the Greater Richmond Chamber of Commerce (GRCC). "Parney" also currently serves the Richmond Chapter of the Cal Ripken Sr. Foundation Board of Trustees, as well as the Richmond Police Athletic League Board of Directors.
