Arrow Exterminators Hosts Annual Fiscal Year Kickoff Summit

Executives, Managers, and Corporate Support Teams Convene to Kick off the New Fiscal Year


Atlanta-based Arrow Exterminators recently held the company’s annual 2022-2023 Fiscal Year Kickoff Summit at The Loews Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia. With over 450 team members and partners in attendance, the two-day event celebrated achievements from the prior fiscal year, which included record-breaking milestones of achieving double digit revenue growth for the 12th year in a row and achieving $340 million in total revenue. The summit also introduced the new internal fiscal year theme, “Lean In, Level Up, Elevate Your Life”.

“Our success is directly related to the talent of our team members and their hard work and passion,” said Emily Thomas Kendrick, chief executive officer of Arrow Exterminators. “It was my distinct pleasure to award and acknowledge those that helped us not only meet, but exceed our company goals, and achieve over a decade’s worth of double-digit revenue growth.” Day one of the summit also featured guest speaker Christian Ragland, Director of Talent Acquisition & Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at AtlantiCare, who shared his insights and strategies on how to bring diversity, equity, and inclusion into the workplace.

“This year’s theme is all about innovation and ‘leaning in’ to new ideas and strategies for our company looking forward. One of our core values at Arrow is Innovation, where we strive to find better ways to service our customers, be more productive, and have a strong competitive advantage in the industry overall,” added Tim Pollard, president and chief operating officer.

In addition to the live meeting, a virtual leadership and motivational workshop for Arrow’s leadership team was hosted by Randy Gravitt.  The workshop was based on Mark Miller’s new book, Smart Leadership, Four Simple Choices to Scale Your Impact.  “Randy Gravitt’s workshop was an excellent fit for Arrow as he challenged Arrow’s leadership team to lead at an optimal level, said Tim Pollard, president and chief operating officer.  “We could not think of a better way to kick off our new fiscal year than motivating our teams to think critically and creatively on how we want Arrow to be in the future. The managers and corporate support leaders left with a renewed sense of commitment to drive their teams by thinking outside of the box.”
