As president of RichPro Pest Management, Dave oversees and is responsible for the day to day operations of the company. Dave and his wife, Melissa, bought Richmond Professional Termite & Pest Control in 2007 and changed the company name to RichPro Pest Management. The decision to change the name came after a shift in the industry from treatment orientation to Integrated Pest Management (IPM). Dave received certification from the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) in early 2008 and in 2009 became certified as a commercial applicator in Wood Destroying Insect Control (7B). In 2013, Dave received his General Pest Control (7A) certification.
Dave was elected to and began serving on the local Central Virginia Pest Management Association (CVPMA) board of directors in 2009. He is currently President of the CVPMA. Dave is also involved as a committee chair on the Virginia Pest Management Association (VPMA) board of directors. Originally from Philadelphia, PA, he has a degree in Computer Information Systems from Clemson University. Dave enjoys working with charities and frequently donates services to the Hanover Habitat for Humanity. Outside of work, he enjoys traveling with his family, playing golf and running half marathons.
Melissa is responsible for all the finances at RichPro Pest Management and holds the executive positions of Treasurer and Secretary of the company. She also does bookkeeping for other small businesses. Melissa was born and raised in Mechanicsville, VA and has a degree in accounting from William & Mary and an MBA in finance from Temple University. Melissa and Dave met in Philadelphia while she was working in public accounting. They moved back to Richmond in 1995 to start a family of their own and be closer to Melissa’s family. Outside of RichPro, Melissa enjoys traveling with her family, exercising and competing in triathlons. Her goal is to one day finish a full Ironman triathlon.
