Ep 91 - Jay Keating: Creating opportunities with PestCo

Jay Keating finds himself at the helm as CEO of PestCo Holdings, a Thompson Street Capital Partners portfolio company. He returns to The Boardroom to dive deeper into his background and what’s in store for PestCo. Give credit to All America Sears’ Chuck Steinmetz for finding Jay, and now Jeff Aiello for bringing him back. Tune in to see how Jay views what’s changed as he returns to the industry.

With a blank slate and a few deals in the books, Jay is looking to build his team. He has already brought on leaders through acquisition, but what leadership gaps exist & how will he fill them? It’ll be interesting to watch from the outside looking in as PestCo picks up more brands, geography, and capabilities as they bulk-up at a rapid clip.

The industry has seen a lot of private equity try to compete. Listen in as Jay discusses how will PestCo will differentiate itself. Paul prods Jay if PestCo could be the right exit strategy for founders that want to completely exit.

By the numbers: $1.3B fund, 90 days as CEO, Top 25 size company, 4 companies acquired via 3 deals. Once a year service? TBD.
