Arrow Exterminators Hosts Annual Fiscal Year Kickoff Meeting
Executives, Managers, and Corporate Support Teams Convene to Kickoff Fiscal Year
Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators recently held the company’s annual 2021-2022 Fiscal Year Kickoff meeting at The Loews Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. With over 400 team members in attendance, the two-day event celebrated achievements from the prior fiscal year including a record-breaking milestone of not only achieving double digit revenue growth for the eleventh year in a row, but also achieving $300 million in total revenue one year earlier than projected. The meeting also introduced the new internal fiscal year theme, “The Comeback Is The Giveback”.
To kickoff Arrow’s theme of giving back, CEO Emily Thomas Kendrick and President & COO Tim Pollard presented a check for $50,000 to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Egleston Hospital, located in Atlanta, GA. The donation is intended to provide a meal for every team member at Egleston Hospital who has been working on the frontline during the COVID-19 pandemic. Arrow also announced it is donating $144,000 to the communities in which it serves by providing its 144 offices around the country with $1,000/each to support a local charity or organization of their choice.
“Our success is directly related to the talent of our team members and their hard work and passion,” said Kendrick. “Due to our successful growth this past year, we wanted to do something different to help give back to our communities. One of our core values at Arrow is community, so we were honored to provide funds to the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta as well as our local offices to give back to the communities our team members live and serve in.”
Pollard continued, “This year’s theme really hit home with many of our team members considering they knew or were closely related to someone who had been impacted by the COVID-19 virus. The managers and corporate support teams left the meeting with a renewed sense of commitment and drive to give back.”
