THE NPTA BEGINS A NEW CHAPTER NPTA New Chapter NewsDesk MAY 2019 1070x675px 1068x674

The National Pest Technicians Association is very pleased to announce the appointment of Steve Hallam as their new Chief Operating Officer with effect from May 1st 2019. With the recent departure of the Office Manager and with long-time CEO John Davison looking to retire, it gave the Board the opportunity to look at the Association as a whole and to see what was needed for the next chapter in its development.

The NPTA, since its beginnings over 25 years ago, has relied almost exclusively on the work of volunteers who have juggled the demands of running a growing trade association alongside their day jobs.

Last year the Association appointed John Hope as a field-based Technical Manager, with many of the Members already benefiting from his tremendous knowledge grounded thinking! It had also become evident over recent months that the Association required another industry-experienced member of staff to support our Members and strengthen our presence internally and externally with a greater efficiency.

The solution was to appoint a Chief Operating Officer, who is both experienced in pest control and running an office.

Steve Hallam has been a volunteer member of the Management Board for several years, fitting that role alongside his day job as Manager of the pest control department of Nottingham City Council. He now joins the NPTA as full-time Chief Operating Officer, responsible for all other staff and reporting directly to the Board, of which he remains a member. With nearly 25 years in pest control, from technician to management, Steve is ideally placed to take the Association to the next level of support for Members.

Retiring CEO John Davison said “I feel the Association has come a long way from its very humble beginnings and is now in a good position to deliver a robust service to our ever increasing membership. It was important to me that I handed it over to someone with hand-son pest control experience and who understands our industry”

“I can now look forward to taking it a bit easier – or as easy as my wife allows – knowing that the Association is in excellent hands for the foreseeable future”.

Very prompt and even called and came out earlier than originally scheduled. Service was very professional, clean, and fast. There was no residual smells after the treatment. Reasonable cost and easy online pay. Definitely will use this company aga in and will recommend to family and friends.

I filled out a written message on their website since it is Labor Day weekend not expecting a call till Tuesday. Within 2 hours he had called us and made an appointment to come give us a quote. We met him and he is very knowledgeable and explained everything about our bug problem. He’s fast, and does the job right. It was a pleasure doing business with Texas Bug Masters.
