Joe joined our Orkin Pest Control teams in 2016 after working for a full-service advertising and communications agency in North Carolina. One of his previous accounts was a flea and tick treatment for pets, so you might say he’s comfortable creating buzz for all kinds of pests.
His previous experience also includes social media and account management for a food certification service and automation products – all good training for the work we do on the commercial side of our Rollins Brands business. Prior to that, Joe interned at a social media start-up, assisting with research, blog writing and customer acquisition.
He’s a graduate of the University of North Carolina, where he earned a B.A. in Journalism and Mass Communications with an emphasis on Advertising. As a Tar Heel, he held leadership positions in his social fraternity and was a member of the Campus Y communications team. For three years he also participated regularly with Extraordinary Ventures, an organization that arranged social events between campus volunteers and mentally disabled individuals.
Joe is a self-proclaimed global soccer analyst, who played the sport growing up in Norcross, GA and now defends a club team on Monday nights at Atlanta’s Silverback Park. When he’s not kicking the ball, he’s likely kicking around with a drum set, banging out rock percussion licks from his pad on Atlanta’s Westside. Personal trivia? His mother was born in Spain, but Joe no habla español.
