Coalmarch and PCO Bookkeepers have announced the launch of PMP Industry Insiders – a podcast designed to give business owners practical tools to grow their business. Topics will include operations, M&A, marketing, sales, and people development.

PMP Industry Insiders will be hosted by Donnie Shelton (Coalmarch, Triangle Pest Control) and Dan Gordon (PCO Bookkeepers, M&A Specialists), who both regularly advise and support growing businesses in the pest and lawn industries. 

“We had over 1,000 business owners and industry partners register for our COVID series,” said Gordon, noting the positive response to the COVID-Proofing Your Business webinar series that he and Shelton hosted in March and April. “And we’ve had a lot of interest from people in the industry on continuing to have those conversations and make advice from some of the industry’s best leaders accessible.” 

“Both PCO Bookkeepers and Coalmarch are committed to helping pest control business owners understand the changing landscape, and what they need to know to grow their businesses,” said Shelton.

Inaugural episodes of the podcast feature Tim Mulrooney (William Blair) sharing his perspectives on why the pest industry is appealing to investors and how business owners can improve the valuation of their business, Kendall Hines (Lawnbot) sharing how artificial intelligence may usher in a new future in efficiency for the pest & lawn industries, and Tom Gibbons (F&W Pest Control) sharing challenges specific to growing a family business.

“We’re looking forward to hosting other industry leaders to get their thoughts and explore topics that relate to growing a business,” said Shelton.
