Orkin, Inc. Names Kelley-Tunis Division Technical Manager

Atlanta-based pest control leader Orkin, Inc. recently added Kim Kelley-Tunis as its Atlantic division technical services manager. Kelley-Tunis will be based in Raleigh, N.C., and will work directly with Orkin’s Atlantic division branches to provide professional technical expertise and training on customer service and pest treatment approaches. In addition to assisting branches with specific pest issues, Kelley-Tunis also will oversee technical training and development initiatives.

“Kim has both technical expertise and enthusiasm for customer service—both key characteristics we look for in every Orkin employee,” said Gene Iarocci, Orkin Atlantic division president. “Her academic research background and nearly 15 years of experience in the pest management industry will help her provide valuable insight to our branches in the Atlantic division.”

After graduating from Purdue University with a degree in wildlife science, Kelley-Tunis researched the biology, behavior and control of multiple pests at Purdue’s Center for Urban and Industrial Pest Management. Prior to joining Orkin, she served as the director of education and training at McCloud Services, where she was responsible for continuing education programs, new employee orientation and client-based educational programs.

A recognized industry expert who was named one of Pest Control Technology’s “40 under 40” in 2004, Kelley-Tunis is a sought-after speaker at pest control industry seminars and conferences. She has written articles for several trade magazines and journals.
