OMAHA, Neb. – Terminix announced that Ken Christianson has been named Commercial Division Sales Manager.

For the past three years, Christianson has led the sales team at Plunkett’s Pest Control, one of the nation’s largest independent providers, well-respected throughout the industry for its comprehensive sales training programs and commercial service protocols.
