Sprague Pest Solutions promoted Tyler Olsson to the position of branch manager for its flagship Tacoma, Wash., branch.
In his new role, Olsson will be responsible for developing and mentoring a team of 17 and coordinating all aspects of operations and business development in the South Puget Sound region.
Olsson started with Sprague in August 2020 when he joined as an account manager in the sales department for Tukwila, Wash., branch. Through his dedication and leadership, he quickly established himself as an asset to the company. In May 2021, Olsson became operations manager for the Tukwila branch. He then transferred to the Tacoma branch in January 2022.
“With his well-rounded background in sales and operations, Tyler is perfect for the role of Tacoma branch manager,” Shane Hartnett, Cascade regional manager of Sprague Pest Solutions, said in a news release. “At Sprague, we are committed to nurturing and developing our talented team members, and Tyler’s promotion exemplifies our belief in fostering internal talent.”
