New Technical Manager for BPCA

Dee Ward-Thompson joined the BPCA team in April 2015 from member company OCS Cannon, where she'd been their UK Technical Manager since 2008. Before then Dee was Operational Quality and Food Safety Manager for Mars, with a remit to manage pest control. Dee's key responsibilities are around technical support for the membership, handling technical queries for the public, and assisting clients with their pest control tendering and specification writing. Dee also represents BPCA on a range of internal and external committees, helping to produce best practice documents, draft legislation, and lobby to represent members' interests around public health pest control.

Dee says "My working life started as a pig farmer so working around Rats was an everyday occurrence. Pest control was a new and exciting career change for me, the first time I attended a training course I came away with a desire to learn more which grew every course I attended. After 7 years in the industry, my passion and interest has grown and each day is still as exciting as the first. Having been both a client and a servicing company I am now looking forward to playing an instrumental part in driving the industry forwards and supporting our members." Dee replaces Richard Moseley, who in May is moving on to be a new technical manager for the pest control business of Bayer CropScience.
