More ServiceMaster Changes to Terminix and TruGreen Brands
By Bill Dries
The ServiceMaster Company announced more changes in the ranks of its divisions Monday, Dec. 5.
Tom Brackett, who had been named interim president of the Memphis headquartered company’s TruGreen division in May is now the permanent leader of the lawn care business..
In making Brackett’s stay at TruGreen permanent, ServiceMaster CEO Hank Mullany announced Chuck Fallon will take over Brackett’s responsibilties as CEO of the Terminix pest control division.
Both will report directly to Mullany, who had Brackett on loan to TruGreen to apply more of Terminix’s methods to a lawn care brand Mullany said publicly he found lacking soon after he became head of ServiceMaster this past spring.
Fallon comes to Terminix from being president of Burger King North America.
TruGreen and Terminix are the two largest business units of ServiceMaster which is a collection of residential and commercial service provided directly by the companies and through franchises.
The two units produce more than $2 billion in annual revenues for ServiceMaster.
Last week, Mullany named Thomas Coba as president of ServiceMaster Clean and Merry Maids, two other ServiceMaster brands. The divisions also include the AmeriSpec and Furniture Medic businesses.
Coba comes from a similar food franchise retail background as Fallon. Coba, who starts in January, is the outgoing COO of Subway Restaurants.
