Matt Nixon Was Born Into The Pest Control Industry
General Pest Control
Who is Matt Nixon? Pest Management Professional magazine calls him one of the industry's top pest management professionals under the age of 40. The folks here at American Pest in Maryland call him the Chief Executive Officer. He is a valued expert who serves as a consultant to the U.S. Department of State's Overseas Building Operations, providing training and pest management support to over 30 U.S. Embassies and Consulate posts worldwide. And, for good reason. This is the job he was born to do.
When asked by Pestworld magazine: "How did you become involved in the industry?" Matt's answer was simple. "I was born into the industry." He has always been inspired by his father, Jay Nixon, a widely respected and successful pest management professional with a Master's Degree in Entomology--and part owner of American Pest Management. It was only natural for Matt to follow in his father's footsteps.
Matt has successfully made a name for himself. He received his Bachelor's in Liberal Studies with an emphasis on Biology and Business and applied himself to the field of pest management. He now serves as Director and President of the Associated Pest Control Association, Chairman of the National Pest Management Leadership Development Group, and serves on the board of directors for Quality Pro--all of which are respected organizations with national influence. He is also an active member of the NPMA Blue Ribbon Bed Bug Task Force, which has been setting industry standards since its inception in 2010.
Under his leadership American Pest has continued to be a state-of-the-art industry leader in pest control and management, and now boasts four board certified entomologists, eleven associate certified entomologists, over 30 state certified technicians, a K-9 bed bug detection team, and over a hundred employees.
When he's not at the helm of American Pest or actively working to shape the pest management industry, he can be found enjoying time with his family or cheering for his favorite sports teams. He is a passionate fan and supporter of the Washington Capitals, Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals, Washington Wizards, and University of Maryland Sports.
