We are so proud of our team and their willingness to go the extra mile.


On August 10, we celebrated our company's 50th year on the New York Stock Exchange. This was an especially historic occasion since our Chairman, R. Randall Rollins, and Lead Director, Henry B.

I want to thank them, our employees and shareholders for their support and contribution to our success during those past 50 years.
