How did you get started in the pest management industry?
Completely by accident. A colleague introduced me to Turner when they were looking for a CFO. I took a chance and really fell in love with the company and the industry. About a year later I became CEO and acquired a portion of ownership in the Company. It’s been a wild ride ever since.
