Mosquito Squad today was again recognized as one of America’s fastest growing private companies by Inc. Magazine on its 35th annual 500|5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
This is the sixth consecutive year Mosquito Squad, founder of the outdoor pest control category, was ranked on the list, joining an elite group of just a handful of privately-held firms that have sustained the remarkable growth over six consecutive years.
Mosquito Squad specializes in eliminating mosquitoes and ticks from outdoor living spaces. The company operates in more than 200 locations in 39 states and the District of Columbia.
“By continuing to focus on building the category of mosquito control, educating consumers on good mosquito management in their own homes and delivering excellent client service in every market, we’ve continued to grow at a rapid pace,” said Chris Grandpre, chairman and CEO of Outdoor Living Brands, parent company and franchisor of Mosquito Squad.
“We expect our 2016 revenues to vastly exceed 2015 levels due to continued increased awareness of the category we created and the ongoing concerns of mosquito and tick borne illnesses. As the category founder and leader, sustaining this growth and Inc. Magazine’s ranking for six consecutive years is an almost unparalleled feat and one few privately-held companies can boast. In fact, this strong growth has allowed us to deliver millions of barrier treatments to our clients, far exceeding other entrants in the outdoor pest control category,” added Grandpre.
As part of continued company wide growth, Mosquito Squad announces an expansion of the close-knit management team and strategic advisory board with the addition of Nelson Stammer as the new director of franchise operations for Mosquito Squad.
“Nelson brings a 15-year proven track record of collaborative leadership to our rapidly expanding team,” said Scott Zide, president & COO of Outdoor Living Brands and co-founder of Mosquito Squad. “His strong operations, financial, and performance management skills from his career in the retail industry integrate perfectly with our mission and client service focus.”
