Meet the Board
John Adkins
At-Large Director

John Adkins currently serves as an At-Large Director for NCPMA.  For 20 years he has been the owner of Four Seasons Pest Control which has offices in Reidsville and Danville, VA. 

John joined NCPMA 14 years ago and has served on the association's Board of Directors for four years where he's served as a Presidential Appointee and an At-Large Director. He's also served on committees for the Pest Control Technician's School, Carolinas/Mid-Atlantic Summer Conference and Technician of the Year.

He entered the pest management industry 20 years ago when a friend announced his retirement from pest management.

"It sparked my interest. I enjoy being outside, around people and solving problems so that fit well.  I have always believed in giving great customer service in any job that I had, and the Pest Management field is an area that if you do a great job for your customers, not only do you get repeat business but you get great referrals.  It was a perfect fit for my personality," he said.

When he's not working, you'll find John outside with his teenaged sons. As a Scout Master for his son's Boy Scouts troop, he's likely to be camping, hiking, kayaking or biking.  He also enjoys golf and traveling.
