DECATUR, Ala. — Cook’s Pest Control has appointed Jerry Baker to the newly created position of corporate director of sales.
Baker’s career with Cook’s Pest Control, Inc. began in September 2005, when was hired as a sales inspector for the Atlanta SE district office. While at Atlanta SE, he quickly achieved Cook’s President’s Club status, was promoted to sales manager and ultimately district manager.
After only 13 months with the company, Baker was promoted to Georgia Regional Sales Manager. He held that position until his most recent promotion to director of sales.
“I love working for Cook’s where excellence is expected in serving our customers, team members and our company,” Baker said. “Imagine these areas as a 3-legged stool; if any one of them is off, we miss the mark of excellence.”
Cook’s Chief Operating Officer Joey Harris added, “Jerry’s enthusiasm is infectious and he’s a great motivator. Plus, he knows sales, Cook’s culture and promotes quality customer service. He will bring skills to the Corporate Office that will serve to advance the sales department as well as each individual residential and commercial sales professional.”
