Phil and Sara Gregory
Founders, and Chairman of the Board
In the beginning, both Phil and Sara were actively involved in the daily management of Gregory Pest Solutions. The Gregory’s both served in leadership roles in the organization and kept a steady pulse on the growth and development of the business and the Gregory team.
Phil served as President of the South Carolina Pest Control Association in 1983 and 1984. He also served as the President of the National Pest Management Association from 1990 – 1991 and won the PCT Crown Award in 1994. In 2020 Phil was inducted into the South Carolina Pest Control Association Hall of Fame in Recognition of his Unwavering Commitment to SCPCA, the State of South Carolina and the Pest Management Industry. Phil Gregory has also been named Life Member of the National Pest Control Association Board of Directors. While many other pest control companies struggled in recent years, Gregory Pest Solutions has thrived. It is mainly due to the original philosophy that started Phil and Sara Gregory on this business venture: taking care of people. Gregory sold the company to Service Master in 2019 whose core values closely lined up with Gregory. These values remain just as relevant today as they did in the beginning.
