Action Pest Control Sells to Scotts

Action Pest Control, Kevin Pass

How did this deal go down and what’s next for Scotts?

As president of Action Pest Control, Kevin Pass possessed all the traits of a classic entrepreneur — tenacity, risk-taking, innovation, etc. — but perhaps the greatest reason for Pass and his company’s success, was his ability to inspire others to follow his high-energy, enthusiastic lead. The Evansville, Ind.-based business had grown into a vibrant regional pest control company with seven offices, 125 employees and annual revenues of $12.6 million.
