ATLANTA — The Rollins Board of Directors has elevated Harry J. Cynkus to senior vice president and named Tom Luczynski its new corporate secretary.

Rollins operates wholly owned subsidiaries Orkin, PCO Services, HomeTeam Pest Defense, Western Pest Services, the Industrial Fumigant Company and Crane Pest Control.

Cynkus joined Rollins in 1998 as CFO and corporate treasurer, and was named vice president in 2009. He began his career with Arthur Andersen & Co. in Boston and has held various financial and information technology positions with several companies throughout the U.S., including Tyco International, ARAMARK Services, Initial USA, Brach & Brock Confections and Mayer Electric Supply Co, Inc. His professional memberships include the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Financial Executives Institute (FEI). He also previously served on FEI's National Committee on Finance and Information Technology.

Luczynski will assume responsibilities as corporate secretary replacing Michael Knottek, who retired from the company on April 30, 2010. Currently serving as vice president of Orkin international development, franchising and support services, Luczynski joined the company in 1985 as manager of reporting, and was promoted to vice president of Orkin finance in 1995. Prior to joining Rollins, Luczynski held financial positions with Revere Copper and Brass and Keytek-Elco Corporation. Luczynski is active in the pest control industry and has previously served on various industry board committees. In addition, he has served as president of the Atlanta chapter of Financial Executives International and president of the Atlanta chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants.

 “Rollins is incredibly fortunate to have individuals such as Harry and Tom to assume these expanded responsibilities,” said Gary W. Rollins, president and CEO of Rollins. “Both of these men have excelled in numerous areas of our company and will continue to contribute significantly to Rollins’ success.”
