In memoriam 2017 Lloyd Smigel - 40 Year Pest Control Industry Guru. For more than 15 years Lloyd had been running business retreats specifically for Pest Control business owners. Lloyd is an icon in the industry. Lloyd's business partner is Pat VanHooser. They have over 80 years combined experience in the Pest Control Industry. They have literally done every job in the business. They've truly "been there and done that." We will honor Lloyd who recently lost his battle with cancer. His spirit will live on in our training weekend to help you in your business.

Pat will be hosting the meeting. Joining Pat live at the event are Andrew, Chuck and Blaine. Blaine is CEO and Founder of Selfluence, a training company helps business owners implement what they know and get consistent results on a daily basis. He's done over 100 Millon dollars in sales and has been helping business owners through events and Mastermind groups for over 25 years. 

Andrew Greess is a pest & spray equipment expert. He speaks and writes extensively on how proper selection & use of spray equipment will reduce downtime and boost profitability. Greess writes the equipment columns for Pest Management Professional & Pest Control Technology Magazines. He is the author of the industry’s only spray equipment strategy book, “Stop Spraying Money Down the Drain”. Using many of the techniques to be covered during the Raise Your Profits Weekend, Greess has built into a leading international supplier of pest control equipment.  

Chuck Trautman is a US Marine Sargent Vietnam veteran. He brings a 41 year business career to the event. After five years in Corporate America, he realized entrepreneurs are too constrained by corporate politics. Since then he has owned and operated auto parts stores, a Carquest Auto Parts Distribution Center, a chain of retail golf equipment stores, and a business and marketing consulting firm.  

Chuck is CEO and Founder of the Arizona Marketing Association and has sold over half a billion dollars in sales for himself and his clients.  

Pat VanHooser decided to try pest control as a job option in the 1970s based on one question: How hard could that be? 40 years later she is still at it. As her knowledge grew so did her opportunities. Pat has been a technician, manager, training specialist and coach to her employees as well as other pest professionals who have asked for her help. The pest field has taken her around the world – even Afghanistan where she worked as a civilian contractor keeping our soldiers safe from pest-borne diseases. As a business leader, Pat has served on various boards including the Chamber of Commerce and started the Smart Girls Club – a reading club for disadvantaged teen girls in Augusta, Georgia. Giving back to the communities that contributed to her success is all a part of her business philosophy.  

Pat has a wealth of personal experience in running companies in an ethical and profitable way. You can read her business advice in numerous industry publications.
