“Our goal is to provide customers with a first-class experience,” says President Vess Pearson. “To do this, we attract a special individual to serve our clients, and provide him/her with a unique culture, comprehensive training programs and management opportunities across the country.”
In 2014, Alterra was awarded Utah’s No. 2 Startup to Watch by Utah Valley BusinessQ. In April, Alterra CEO David Royce was listed as an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year finalist.
Founded in 2012 and having expanded into more than 1,300 cities, Alterra is a member of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Pesticide Environmental Stewardship Program. Alterra has also partnered with the United Nations’ nonprofit Nothing But Nets, and dedicates a portion of company profits annually to send insecticide-treated bed nets to help save the lives of millions from malaria in underdeveloped countries.
