FAIRFAX, Va. — Greg Baumann, vice president of technical services of the National Pest Management Association, has resigned that position to join Rollins Inc. as technical services director.

Baumann, who has worked at NPMA for 18 years total, will begin his new position in about a month, he said. Soon to be based at Rollins’ corporate office in Atlanta, Baumann will report to Tom Luczynski, Rollins corporate secretary and vice president of Orkin international development, franchising and support services.

Baumann’s new position is within the technical services group, which also includes Paul Hardy, Frank Meek and Ron Harrison.
