BOUND BROOK, N.J. — Viking Termite & Pest Control announced that its Saddle Brook, N.J. office, under the leadership of branch manager Tony Yochum, was named the 2011 Viking Office of the Year.

“Tony Yochum and the Saddle Brook team had a phenomenal year in many areas and really turned up the heat early on in the year,” said Viking President Ryan Bradbury. “Their growth was a very healthy 34.77% and they exceeded their aggressive Viking budget by over 13 percent.”

The Saddle Brook team will be awarded the “Viking Battle Helmet of Triumph,” which is Viking’s version of the NHL Stanley Cup. The helmet will be put on display in 2012 and every team member will receive a cash prize at a dinner celebration they will attend with their guest.

“Saddle Brook’s sensational efforts helped Viking achieve the greatest one year revenue increase in company history, despite a poor economy,” Bradbury added.
