Luke is the founder and President of Native Pest Management based out of West Palm Beach, FL with four office locations in Florida. Luke is a graduate of the University of Florida and graduated in 2010 with a bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in accounting. After graduation, Luke became a Certified Public Accountant and worked as an intelligence analyst for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Tallahassee, FL. In the FBI, Luke obtained a Top-Secret SCI clearance and was trained in Quantico, VA. He then focused on counterterrorism and public corruption cases throughout North Florida while supporting a team of 17 special agents.
Being a third-generation entrepreneur, after close to three years in the FBI, Luke decided to work for his family’s landscaping business. While managing high-end residential landscape accounts on Palm Beach Island, Luke also managed the company’s one lawn care route that produced $87,000 in revenue in 2014. He saw the strong demand for pest control in South Florida and decided to purchase that partial lawn route from his family and commit his full efforts into creating a pest company that provided an unmatched customer experience. In 2015, Native Pest Management was created, and now has over 50 full time employees. Native Pest Management was named to the Inc. 5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America List and won the Better Business Bureau’s Torch Award for Ethics.
Future goals include Native Pest Management becoming a PCT Top 100 company and having over 100,000 recurring clients. In his free time, Luke enjoys spending time with his wife Caitlin and their four children. Luke enjoys traveling, biking, reading, and watching college football, especially the Florida Gators.
