LAURENS, S.C. — David Nelson, a second-term board member for the South Carolina Pest Control Association (SCPCA), was recognized with the 2021 Board Member of the Year award. Nelson not only serves on the Board of Directors but also the Membership and Pest Pro Summit committees.
“David was selected as Board Member of the Year for 2021 due to his unabashed commitment to the association, and for his willingness to not only serve but go above and beyond,” said Rich Borden, SCPCA President. “David is an asset to the SCPCA and embodies the professionalism that we strive to maintain and promote. I look forward to working with him more over the next year.”
Nelson has been in the industry for over 15 years, initially joining the Northwest Family after the team he was leading prior, Piedmont Pest Control, joined Northwest Exterminating in 2017. Scott Eubanks, vice president of industry relations for Northwest, is also a board member of the SCPCA and met Nelson during Piedmont’s acquisition. “David was a rockstar from the very beginning. To acquire a great company, the people have to be extraordinary. The Piedmont team, especially David, is a testament to that. He’s very deserving to be recognized and celebrated with this award!”
Both David and Scott spoke to the SCPCA’s focus on supporting local pest companies and public health and its overall importance as a voice and representation in the state’s pest industry as a whole. “I love being able to support local South Carolina businesses and our pest industry through SCPCA. I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to meet people across the Southeast that I wouldn’t have otherwise. It’s been a great experience serving on the board, and I am humbled to be recognized for this type of award,” stated David, Service Center Manager for Northwest’s Laurens, SC service center.
The Northwest Exterminating team is excited to celebrate David for not only his recognition from the SCPCA but also his outstanding leadership within his team and all of Northwest.
