Northwest Exterminating’s George Simpson was awarded the Home Builders Association of Tennessee (HBAT) Associate of the Year award for 2021.

Simpson is vice president of associates for the Central Tennessee division of the HBAT and serves as the chair for three committees.

Simpson joined Northwest Exterminating in 2011 and has served in the Tennessee area for over six years. He has been part of the Northwest Business Development Team since 2017.

“I was blown away and totally surprised,” Simpson said in a news release. “Our executive officer, Debbie Mann, nominated me in secret, and wow, I’m just grateful. The members of our local division are incredible. While I’m excited for it, it truly is a group effort and takes a village to for every event, fundraiser, and meeting. I’m honored to serve alongside this group and can’t thank them enough for all we came together to accomplish this year!”

Simpson chaired the Fishing Tournament and both the Spring and Fall Golf Tournament Committees. According to a news release, one moment that stood out for Simpson this year was when the golf committee realized they had ordered too much food for the attendees. Within the hour, the committee found an organization to donate the food to, which fed 50 people through Last Call for Grace Ministries.

“George has the ability to connect with people and make them feel appreciated because he truly cares and puts his all into everything he does,” said Clay Cochran, Northwest Builder Development Associate and Board Member for the Greater Chattanooga Home Builders Association. “I love working for Northwest because we’re encouraged and supported to build relationships and honor people. I know that helps us all be more successful in our roles. I couldn’t be prouder to be on a team with someone like George. The award is well deserved.”
