CARROLLTON, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/13 -- FEMO Group Holdings today announced management changes to drive consistent growth worldwide. The changes are effective immediately. Josh Ingram has been named president of FEMO Group Franchise Systems and Frank O'Neal has been named vice president of operations for FEMO Texas.
"I am excited to have Josh lead FEMO Group Franchise Systems," said Dan O'Neal, chairman & CEO, FEMO Group Holdings. "Josh's deep experience and industry knowledge makes him the right person to lead FEMO Franchise Group's aggressive future growth plan."
Ingram has been with FEMO Group Holdings for more than 10 years, most recently serving as vice president of operations at MosquitoNix. He has been instrumental in MosquitoNix's growth over the past decade.
"I'm thrilled to take on this new leadership role and lead FEMO's franchise growth during a period of high demand for mosquito control," said Ingram. "I look forward to continuing to grow our mosquito control footprint, both nationally and internationally."
"I am equally proud to have my son Frank O'Neal lead FEMO Texas. Over the past few years, Frank has risen through the ranks and has proven to be the right choice to run our Dallas-Fort Worth MosquitoNix business. He has seen up close the dramatic increase of mosquitoes and West Nile virus cases here in Texas and understands how fast we have to move to provide our products and services to protect families living across the Metroplex," added O'Neal.
Mosquito control is a fast growing industry due to changing weather patterns across North America and the emerging threat of mosquito borne illnesses. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, West Nile virus is now endemic to the United States and peak time for the spread of the virus will be from July through October, surging in August. The CDC also states that as of December 11, 2012, there were 1,739 human cases of West Nile virus in Texas, including 76 deaths. Of that, 868 human cases were reported in Dallas (371), Tarrant (242), Denton (177), Collin (55) and Ellis (23) counties.
"I look forward to taking on this leadership assignment and help grow our DFW MosquitoNix business during a period of high demand for mosquito control," said Frank O'Neal. "With summer just around the corner, time is of the essence for MosquitoNix to continue to expand its reach throughout the Metroplex and protect more Dallas-Fort Worth families from life threatening mosquito borne illnesses."
