MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Norman Goldenberg, senior vice president of government affairs and industry relations for Terminix, has announced plans to retire from the company at the end of this year.  He plans to continue working with Terminix on a consultative basis through 2015.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to have Norm on the Terminix team for the past 23 years,” said Larry Pruitt, president of Terminix.  “We will miss him greatly, and are indebted to his efforts and contributions that have helped propel Terminix and the industry to where it is today.”

Goldenberg graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in entomology. He held various management roles in the pest control industry before launching his own company in the late 1980s. Goldenberg joined Terminix and TruGreen in 1990, representing industry issues on the local, state and national levels. He also was responsible for helping to strengthen relationships with franchisees, manufacturers and distributors, as well as overseeing the company’s product sales division.

He is past president of the National Pest Management Association (NPMA), the Florida Pest Management Association (FPMA), Project EverGreen and the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET) and currently serves on the board of directors for Project EverGreen and PLANET.

In 2004, Goldenberg was bestowed the highest honor the National Pest Management Association (NPMA) can award – the Pinnacle Award.  This honor recognizes lifetime dedication to the pest management industry. He has received numerous other industry commendations, including the President’s and Pioneer Awards from the FPMA, Hall of Fame, 25 Most Influential, and Professional of the Year honors from Pest Control Technology magazine.  He often lends his pest management and lawn care expertise to various forums and has presented to legislatures, regulatory agencies and Congress.
