SARASOTA, Fla. (Dec. 22, 2016) – Environmental Pest Service (EPS) is enhancing its management team by filling two key positions as the company continues to focus on growth, operational excellence and high levels of customer satisfaction.
Brad Pitts joins as Regional Vice President of Arrow Environmental Services, a brand of EPS serving southwest and central Florida. In this new role, he will lead all aspects of the business, including sales, service, branch manager direction, recruiting, team development and other key functions.
Pitts brings more than 30 years of experience in the pest control industry, having worked in Texas and Florida. Most recently, he was part of the $165-million South Central Division for Orkin as Region Vice President. During his years with Orkin, he held several other division-level leadership roles, including Assistant Division President and Division Sales Manager. Pitts earned his undergraduate degree and Masters of Business Administration at LeTourneau University, and he completed the Advanced Leadership Graduate Program in 2011 at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business.
“I’m excited to begin this next chapter of my career with Arrow Environmental Services,” said Pitts. “The company has been doing very impressive things, and I’m looking forward to contributing to its continued growth and success.”
Steve Mock is promoted to Manager of Safety and Compliance for Environmental Pest Service, which operates four brands, located in Florida, Georgia and North Carolina. In this role, Mock will manage all safety directives, communications and concerns throughout the company.
Most recently, Mock served as EPS’s Training Specialist. In this role, he led field and classroom trainings, conducted training meetings for service managers and oversaw all aspects of safety and compliance for approximately 480 EPS team members. He implemented new safety programs, including defensive driving, ladder handling and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) building compliance inspections. Prior to joining EPS, Mock was a Technical Trainer for Comcast Cable for several years and a Communications Technician during his six years of service in the United States Marine Corps Reserve.
“We’re thrilled to have Brad and Steve in these positions,” said George Pickhardt, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Environmental Pest Service. “These are critical roles for our company, and I’m confident we have the right team in place to keep our positive momentum.”
