“Finding the right company to be part of the team was especially important to me, not only for our customers but our employees,” Brian Patrick MacQueen, CEO and president of Nexgen Exterminating, said in the news release. “Our employees will be able to enhance their knowledge and expertise with Clark Pest Control. I will also be joining the Clark Pest Control team, and I am extremely excited about the opportunity with them.”

“We are super excited for the growth in one of our emerging markets,” said Brad Parker, Clark Pest Control’s corporate development director, mergers and acquisitions. “We love the employee culture at Nexgen and feel their team is going to be a great addition to our Southern California branches.”
