WOBURN, Mass — Modern Pest Services of Woburn, Mass., announces the promotion of Matt Sheppard and Gary True, both to the position of service manager.

Along with providing excellent service to Modern’s residential and commercial clients and assuring accuracy and efficacy of work, both positions will provide support to the team’s service professionals by overseeing day-to-day operations, productivity, and quality assurance, and acting as a liaison between the service pofessionals and general manager.
