FAIRFAX, Va. — Rob Lederer has left his position as executive vice president of the National Pest Management Association, effective immediately.

The announcement was made by NPMA President Laura SImpson during an NPMA Board of Directors conference call this morning. Lederer will remain with NPMA for six months in a consulting role.

In an NPMA press release, Lederer stated, "I treasure my NPMA experiences, particularly the many people I've had the opportunity to meet and what I've learned over the years. But, many of us who travel intense career paths reach a point where it is time to pursue new challenges, and, now, that time has come.”

He added, “With the quality and caliber of our leadership and staff team, I have full confidence that NPMA is poised to achieve even greater successes in the coming years.”

Simpson praised Lederer's contributions to the association and the industry, saying he is largely responsible for building NPMA into a powerhouse organization. "Rob leaves behind an incredibly solid association made up of individual building blocks he stacked with precision and intent. From the strength of partnerships with our state associations to the creation of Quality Pro and the Professional Pest Management Alliance, from the fostering of new industry leaders at Academy and Leadership Development Group to our widely respected government affairs program, the industry owes Rob a resounding thanks for his far reaching efforts that will outlive his time with the association."

Simpson noted NPMA's executive committee has begun diligent work on a transition plan and that members can be assured the association's activities will continue to operate fully during the search for and transition to a new executive vice president. "The great work of NPMA staff, our board and the existing programs established during Rob's tenure as our leader will continue unvarnished while we undergo a comprehensive, national search for the right candidate," Simpson expressed. "We don't enter into this search lightly and won't make decisions without careful, consideration for the day-to-day operations and long-term strategic goals of the organization."

PCT will be providing updates to this story.
