H. Russell (Russ) Ives, CEO and President of Rose Pest Solutions has retired from the board of directors of Copesan Services, Inc., the national pest management provider. Ives served on the board in a variety of capacities for the past 24 years. He remains at the helm of Rose Pest Solutions, the nation’s oldest pest management company that provides comprehensive services in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to serve for the last 24 years with such talented individuals and partners in a forward-thinking, innovative, industry quality leader. Lessons I have learned through this involvement have benefitted the many clients we serve here in Michigan and the Great Lakes region. Copesan has a great future, and we remain committed to being a significant part of that good story!”, says Ives.
During his tenure, Ives helped guide Copesan in a variety of capacities including Chair of the Board, Vice-Chair, Treasurer, and served on a number of key committees.
"It's hard to imagine a Board meeting without his insightful comments and positive approach, however we know we can count on his continuing support as a shareholder and resource to Copesan; and we look forward to working with him for many years to come," said Deni Naumann, Copesan President.
Alfie Treleven, Chairman of the Board for Copesan, shared, "Copesan is truly a better organization for having worked with Russ. He's helped us grow in leaps and bounds and while we will miss his contributions on the Board, we are also excited to see him embark on new adventures in our industry with organizations like PestSure and the National Pest Management Association (NPMA)."
Ives will continue as President of pest management insurance provider PestSure and serves on the Leadership Board of NPMA as Secretary. Ives currently resides with his family in Birmingham, Michigan.
