MEMPHIS ? The ServiceMaster Company, one of the world’s largest residential and commercial service providers, today announced two key appointments in its largest brands, TruGreen and Terminix.

Bill Sublette has been named to the position of vice president of sales of TruGreen and chief sales officer, and Steve Good will succeed Sublette as vice president of sales at Terminix. Both leaders will continue to report to Tom Brackett, Terminix president and chief operating officer, who is also serving as interim president of TruGreen.
“One of the key strategies ServiceMaster has identified for rapidly growing our company is sharing talent to help accelerate best-practice sharing across all of our businesses,” said Hank Mullany, ServiceMaster chief executive officer. “Together, these moves demonstrate ServiceMaster’s commitment to this strategy.”

In his new role, Sublette will oversee all TruGreen residential and commercial sales programs, as well as the TruGreen contact centers in Dallas and Tampa. Sublette will also continue to lead the Terminix contact centers in Memphis, Dallas and Atlanta, providing an essential link to share best practices between ServiceMaster’s two large branch-based businesses.

“Bill is a high-energy, customer-focused, results-driven leader known for developing high-performing, highly engaged teams throughout his 20-year Terminix career,” said Brackett. “He has been instrumental in driving revenue growth, helping Terminix become the first pest control company to surpass $1 billion in annual revenue.”
Good, who joined Terminix in 1996, most recently served as senior vice president of business development. He will oversee all Terminix residential and commercial sales programs, while continuing to lead new business development activities and manage key third-party relationships with strategic partners in retail, banking, real estate and product development.

“Steve is a highly strategic, growth-focused marketing executive with a broad range of experience in sales, direct marketing, interactive media and business development,” said Brackett. “We’re fortunate to have someone with his experience to succeed Bill and help take our business to the next level.”
