Popdan began his career with the company in March 2009 when he participated in the MIT program in the South West, Fla., region. He completed his sales, termite, and pest and lawn training within a few months of joining the company. He then moved to Lehigh, Fla., for administrative and service management training, and completed his management training in Englewood, Fla., in December 2009.
