The Potomac Company is pleased to announce the sale of its client, Greenleaf Organic Pest Management, Inc. (“Greenleaf”), to Orkin Pest Control (“Orkin”).

Greenleaf, based in North Hollywood, California, was founded by Stan and Lori Lake in 1998. While predominantly a traditional pest control company, Greenleaf does provide organic services to some of its Los Angeles clients that desire organic treatment options.

Lori Lake said:

“I am very happy to be able to close this chapter of our lives and move on to the next. We began to search for an advisor because we had no idea what we should sell our business for, after all, this was for our retirement and it was a very important decision.

I was impressed with Paul Giannamore beginning with our initial phone conversation. Paul is very knowledgeable, patient and kind. He was always professional, yet very personable. He explained the process in minute detail, answered all of our questions and was easily available to us, even though we knew he was constantly on all corners of the globe. Not only was he able to run a very effective process with buyers, he also helped us in choosing the one that would be best not only for us, but our employees as well. Before hiring an advisor, we were concerned about spending money and not getting a satisfactory result. With Potomac, we truly couldn’t be more pleased with the results.”

Potomac acted as exclusive financial advisor to Greenleaf. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
