Professional Pest Management Alliance Announces New Executive Director
The Professional Pest Management Alliance, the consumer education arm of the National Pest Management Association, has announced Cindy Mannes as executive director.
The Professional Pest Management Alliance has announced that Cindy Mannes has accepted the position of executive director. Mannes was Executive Director of PPMA from 2001-2008 before leaving to work as Chief Marketing and Strategy Officer of Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators.
According to Tommy Fortson, "We are very pleased to welcome Cindy back as PPMA's Executive Director. It was under her direction that the organization found its sea legs and demonstrated the power of a unified industry voice."
Bob Rosenberg, chief executive officer of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) states, "We've been very lucky to have terrific, engaged leaders of PPMA since 2001. Most recently under Missy Henriksen's stewardship, PPMA has grown year-over-year, both in terms of size and message penetration, but our work is far from done. Thirty seven percent of homeowners report using professional pest management services each year - which means we've got lots of frontier left to tackle."
Mannes commented that the opportunity to meaningfully contribute to industry growth is one of the key motivating factors in her decision to return to PPMA. "There is incredible opportunity for our industry, and I'm very motivated to continue to grow the residential business and more firmly establish our value proposition commercially. Missy has done an incredible job of introducing PPMA to more members of the industry and solidifying our consumer voice - it will be an honor to build on this work and continue PPMA's success."
"We are very grateful to Missy for her dedicated service, leadership and vision over the past seven years, and look forward to continuing PPMA's incredible work under Cindy's capable guidance," continued Fortson.
