MENOMONEE FALLS, Wisc. - Copesan Services announced that Jamie Ogle, president and CEO of Lloyd Pest Control, San Diego, Calif., was elected to the Copesan board of directors at its annual shareholders meeting.

Lloyd Pest Control joined Copesan as a local service provider in 2010 and became a Copesan shareholder in 2012. 

"Jamie is a great addition to the Copesan board," said Alfie Treleven, chairman of the Copesan board and president of Sprague Pest Solutions, Tacoma, Wash. "The breadth and depth of his experience in the pest management industry brings insight, and his philanthropic spirit and community-oriented mindset weave perfectly into the dynamics of the Copesan board." 

 A graduate of the University of California, Davis, and the University of San Diego, Ogle is the third-generation leader of the family-owned Lloyd Pest Control, starting as a summer janitor while still in high school. Ogle has held a wide variety of positions in the organization, including mechanic assistant, termite fumigation helper and marketing manager, succeeding his father as president in 2000. Ogle also volunteers coaching youth softball and basketball teams of his two children.

Ogle has served on the Leadership Development Group and the QualityPro Board for the National Pest Management Association, and was a recipient of PCT & Syngenta's Crown Leadership Award in 2007. Locally, he was director for the San Diego Chapter of Pest Control Operators of California.

"I'm delighted to have Jamie join our board," said Deni Naumann, president of Copesan. "He brings a fresh perspective as a more recent member of the Copesan network in the past three years."
