After his training he became a route specialist and was the pest guy for 75 commercial accounts that included hospitals, skilled care facilities, restaurants, and even the Oklahoma City State Capitol Complex.

After 2 years as a route specialist, Jim was moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma as an area manager, where he was in charge of all accounts in eastern Oklahoma and western Arkansas.  In 1988, as point man for newly opened markets in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Charleston WV, and Buffalo NY, he built the business from one service specialist to over 26 service techs and 1800 plus accounts.  In 2008, he was brought to Cape Coral to help manage this district, that needed attention and his skills to keep on track. In 2013 with 30 years with Eco Lab, Jim retired.

It took less than a year for Jim to figure out that retirement wasn't for him.  Maggie, his wife of over 35 years, told him if he was going to go back to some kind of work that he should do something he loved and that she would do it with him.  In 2014, they started Florida Pest Professionals.

Maggie  comes with her own set of credentials.  She has over 28 years with H. J. Heinz. She has been in charge of quality assurance along with auditing and writing their quality programs including pest management.  With the two of them working together as a team, they bring a unique knowledge and understanding of the pest control business and the customer's needs. 

These high school sweethearts have 2 kids, one who is a doctor and the other an executive kitchen manager.  They both like travel, boats and motorcycling.  They both claim the other is their soul mate, and are finding that working together as a team on this new venture is even better and more rewarding than they anticipated.
