PCOC - Summer 2016 - 11


Presidential Profile
The Voice of PCOC staff recently
had a chance to catch up with incoming 2016-2017 President Mike Bullert
about his experience in the industry
and plans for the association during
his tenure.
PCOC: How did you get started
on your career path?
Bullert: In college, my favorite courses were
animal physiology and organic chemistry. I
was studying to become a Wildlife Biologist
or perhaps go into Medicine. I graduated from
Willamette	University	with	a	Bachelor	of	Science	
in Biology and a Minor in Chemistry. In four
years, I completed my college degree, competed
in a National Football Championship, married the
love of my life, had our first child, and started
exploring career opportunities.
While searching for employment, I took a part
time position as a pest control technician for a
national pest control company. I worked my way
up through company. In nine years, I served many
roles, including Branch Manager in four different
cities in California. I found that I was very passionate about pest control. I loved helping people
solve their pest problems, protecting their families
from harmful pests and saving their property
from termites.
In 2007, my wife Bekki and I purchased Big
Time Pest Control. We have implemented a culture of employee development and customer service to help our company grow every year.
PCOC: What do you think are the biggest
challenges facing the industry in the state
of California and nationwide?
Bullert: Legislative and regulatory challenges
continue to threaten our ability to protect human
health and preserve property in California and
across the nation. As we have seen in Oregon in
2013	or	in	Utah	in	2010,	it	only	takes	one	misapplication to invoke drastic regulatory changes
that cause the loss of some of our important tools
needed to conduct business. We must continue to
work together to educate all companies, members and non-members, on the best practices for
