Truly Nolen Pest Control promoted Don Kitchens to manager of the company’s Orlando, Fla., service office at 2082 33rd St.
Kitchens, who has 25 years of experience in the pest control industry, joined Truly Nolen in 2018 as a manager in training. Prior to joining the company, he served in a sales development role for three years with Bug Brigade Pest Control. Kitchens attended both the University of Florida and the University of North Florida.
“Don has always shown initiative in the performance of his duties, even going beyond what is expected of him in order to ensure our company delivers quality customer service,” says Alex Bello, district manager of Orlando, the Treasure Coast and the Palm Beaches region. “We are very lucky to have him as a member of our Orlando team.”
Kitchens will help the service office gain more visibility with the local Orlando community and lead the development of the sales and service teams.
“I really missed developing and leading a sales and service team, which is something I enjoy and have had previous success doing,” says Kitchens. “Working for this company is truly refreshing, no pun intended, because there is a sincere desire to provide an equitable work-life balance.”
Kitchens will also be responsible for instilling the company’s core values in his team.
“Having worked for several large pest control companies previously, my favorite thing about working for Truly Nolen is the company’s culture. Our core values are definitely a way of life,” says Kitchens.
