PestRoutes, an industry software provider based in McKinney, Texas, has named William Chaney as its new CEO.

Chaney brings more than 25 years of software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) leadership experience in accelerating the growth of both private and public companies. He will oversee PestRoutes and its sister company, Lobster Marketing — serving more than 1,500 residential and commercial pest control and field services companies from offices in McKinney, Texas, and Ellsworth, Maine.

“PestRoutes has seen 125 percent growth in the past two years alone, and there is no better person to lead our business to the next stage of growth than William,” Gabriel Goncalves, PestRoutes’ chairman of the board, noted in a news release. “William is a proven technology leader with a history of growing high-performing companies that deliver superior software and customer experiences. His vast expertise and proven track record will enable us to scale our operations, continue to innovate and advance our industry-leading platform for pest control, lawn and pool businesses.”

Chaney most recently served as executive VP and chief product officer of RealPage Inc., where he spent 12 years growing the customer-focused SaaS business from a small, pre-IPO company to a $900 million-plus publicly traded company. At RealPage, Chaney led eight business units with responsibility for product strategy, development, sales, product marketing, implementations, account management and operations. Prior to joining RealPage, Chaney held the position of group president at Jack Henry & Associates Inc., and was the founder and CEO of Select Payment Processing, a SaaS payment processing platform he sold to Jack Henry & Associates. Chaney grew up in Richardson, Texas, and holds a bachelor of computer science from Texas Christian University.

“PestRoutes is an innovative, well-respected and rapidly growing technology company, and I’m excited to join this customer-obsessed team,” Chaney said in the news release. “A benchmark of our success has been and will remain measured by our customers’ revenue growth. We will continue to invest in our industry-leading platform to enable our customers to attract and win more business, to be more competitive in their markets and increase productivity within their operations. PestRoutes’ customer-focused company culture of integrity, service and collaboration is the foundation upon which we will continue to grow and deliver amazing customer experiences.”
