Phil started his career with Rentokil in 1977 as a technician, and was a field biologist and a supervisor before joining Cleankill in 2001.

At Cleankill’s staff conference Phil was presented with a specially commissioned trophy featuring two rats and a globe to represent his love of travelling. The inscription said “Presented to Phil Nye on the occasion of his retirement. The rats can now sleep easy.”

At the conference Phil gave a talk about how things had changed since he started his career.

Cleankill Managing Director Paul Bates, said: “Phil was a real asset to the company and was excellent at training new staff who we wanted to mirror his attitude and knowledge.

“Phil eased gradually into retirement, reducing to four days at age 65 and then three days a week at 68. He originally covered London and in the last few years worked in Hampshire, Sussex and Surrey. 

“We never had any customer complaints – only compliments – and he was definitely one of the best technicians in the industry. He will be missed.”

When Phil joined the company in 2001 Cleankill employed seven staff. Now employing 50 staff, multi award-winning Cleankill has grown year on year and now has several thousand clients throughout London, Bristol, Buckinghamshire, the South East and across the UK. 

Cleankill is the only pest control company in England to achieve and retain the Gold Investors in People accreditation.
