I am one of the four founder members of the NPTA, and vice-chair of the NPTA Board of directors since 2023.  I started my pest control career with the C.W.S in 1970 later to be known as Pestoxin covering the Eastern side of the country.  After 8 years with Pestoxin, I took up a position with Nottingham City Council public health Dept as a Pest Control Officer, working my way up to Chief Pest Control Officer until I was made redundant in 2007 after serving 32  years.  I feel very proud to be associated with the NPTA from the start and seeing it grow into what it is today with members from all over the country and worldwide.
