Bob Rosenberg will guide NPMA through a transition period.
FAIRFAX, Va. — The National Pest Management Association has appointed Bob Rosenberg as acting executive vice president. Rosenberg, a 23-year NPMA veteran, will guide the association through a transition period. In late September, NPMA President Laura Simpson, during a conference call with the NPMA Board of Directors, announced that Executive Vice President Rob Lederer had resigned, effective immediately ( see related article ).
Simpson, highlighting Rosenberg's impressive career and several decades of experience with the association, stated, "We want to ensure steady waters for the industry. There is no better or more qualified candidate to take the reigns and work cohesively with NPMA staff and industry members alike."
In his new role, Rosenberg will be responsible for continuing the strong, personal relationships of the association with members, state associations and affiliated organizations. Rosenberg noted, "I appreciate the opportunity to continue to serve the pest management industry in new and broadened ways. I'm confident that the association's work will continue as strong today as ever before under the guidance of our board and in the capable hands of the existing staff team."
Rosenberg's career with the National Pest Management Association has focused on advocating for the professional pest management industry's interests with federal, state and local government. An oft-quoted expert on all pest management related issues, Rosenberg has served on numerous boards and was appointed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to sit on various federal advisory committees, including the Pesticide Program Dialog Committee.
