February 1, 2024

ohDEERohDEER recently appointed its new brand president, Glenn Leingang.

The announcement coincides with ohDEER’s 10th year of franchising. As the first-ever hire for this role, Leingang will work to increase ohDEER’s brand awareness, educating prospects about the franchise opportunity and growing the network, which currently includes 14 franchisees across Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Virginia.

Leingang’s immediate development goals involve expanding into more locations in existing states and branching into neighboring states along the Northeast coast, aiming to surpass 50 locations by 2027.

“My goal is to bring a fresh perspective to ohDEER and build on its already impressive franchise development track record,” Leingang said in the news release. “I look forward to connecting with potential franchise prospects seeking an established and successful business ownership opportunity at a time when a growing number of homeowners and policymakers are demanding 100% natural pest care solutions.”

Leingang brings over 20 years of experience as a dynamic sales professional that began with him as a Quiznos franchisee, a business he successfully ran for four years. After selling the restaurant he took on the role as regional vice president at United Franchise Group, where he oversaw the growth of eight brands and learned the ins and outs of the business from the franchisor side. Most recently, Leingang served as chief development officer at Generator Supercenter, where he was responsible for its rapid and exponential growth during his three year tenure.

“Glenn is precisely the leader we are looking to add to our team at a pivotal time for our company,” said Colleen Upham, owner and co-founder of ohDEER. “His qualities and sales experience make him an excellent fit to propel ohDEER franchise development to the next level and strengthen our presence in new and key markets.”
