TUCSON, Ariz. - Truly Nolen announced the promotion of two district managers, Leo Gomes and Mike Tanner. 

Having been with Truly Nolen since 1997, Gomes has served as part-time service technician, branch manager, franchise owner and most recently district manager for commercial services since 2010. Throughout his tenure, Gomes has displayed exceptional leadership and mentoring skills as well as extensive knowledge of the pest management industry, Truly Nolen said. Gomes will now oversee the residential services for the Phoenix, Flagstaff and Salt Lake City areas.  
 
“Since 2010, Leo has made great strides in building our commercial presence in the West,” said Arnie Kaplan, executive vice president for Truly Nolen.  “I look forward to seeing Leo’s work further develop his designated consumer markets.” 
 
Tanner initially worked for Truly Nolen from 1996 to 1998 as a financial analyst in the Corporate Office located in Tucson. Upon his return in 2011, Tanner rejoined the Truly Nolen family as the Western Region Sales Manager and became an influential piece in revamping the sales training program. Tanner’s new district includes the commercial services for Tucson, Phoenix and San Diego.
