Local Business Owner Receives National Award
Chase Hazelwood has been named "Young Entrepreneur of the Year" by the National Pest Management Association.
The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) presented Hazelwood's award on October 17, 2019 in San Diego, CA at the association's annual national conference (PestWorld).
The Young Entrepreneur Award recognizes pest control professionals under 40 years of age who have helped develop an industry business and/or stewarded a meaningful industry concept to fruition. Hazelwood's award nomination focused on the growth of his company in revenue, territory and team size since he assumed operational control of the business. It also referenced several novel ideas he has implemented in the company and his local philanthropic efforts with NC Fusion soccer organization and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
"Our team has a lot to celebrate this year! We've grown in many ways and had our successes recognized locally and nationally. We also recently celebrated our 60th anniversary at the beach with our whole team and their families! I am honored to be a recipient of this award. Many of the past winners are people I highly respect," says Hazelwood.
