Central Life Sciences, the Schaumburg, Ill.-based parent company of Zoëcon Professional Products, has hired Gary Wagner, ACE, as a regional sales manager for the following states: Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan and Wisconsin. Previously, Wagner was a regional support manager for Gregory Pest Solutions, responsible for technical training and education, pest identification, customization of client action plans, ensuring safe work practices, regulatory compliance, and support of branches in reaching their financial metrics in eight states.

Wagner holds a bachelor’s degree in biblical doctrine from the Tabernacle Baptist College in Greenville, S.C.

“Gary’s technical training and operational experience will add significant value to our customers,” Tracy Harris III, VP of sales for Professional Brands with Central Life Sciences, said in a news release. “Aside from the product support, Gary brings great passion for teaching and building strong relationships with our distributor partners and consumers.”


Central Life Sciences’ Zoëcon Professional Products offer insect growth regulators, adulticides, and other pest management solutions to control bed bugs, cockroaches, fleas, flies, ants, and other pests in both residential and commercial markets.

According to CLS’ online history, Zoëcon was founded by Dr. Carl Djerassi, where his team was able to commercially produce a group of molecules called insect growth regulators (IGRs) which revolutionized insect control by introducing a method that interferes with the development and reproduction of insects. Beginning with methoprene, and the later discovery of hydroprene and kinoprene, these compounds became the building blocks of the comprehensive Zoëcon portfolio of insect control solutions.
