Aaron Teschner SRM National Account Manager

As a new member of the ServiceMaster Professional Services team I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Aaron Teschner and I have taken on a role as a National Account Manager for the SRM brand. I will be working to attain service level agreements with commercial entities. My initial focus is securing agreements in the Multi-Family Housing and Senior Living sectors before branching out into other vertical markets. I am embracing this new challenge since coming onboard in late January and am looking forward to being a big part in the long term growth of the SRM division.

Trent NegaardOwner

I love to play disc golf, the part I love about my job is seeing the diverse group of employees we have bringing their variety of gifts and talents and watching them develop and grow. My favorite place to travel is anywhere by the ocean. I love my church body at cornerstone church in Litchfield MN and being part of a small group there. My last son is a senior this year and looking forward to the empty nest years with my lovely wife Lynn. I have 2 grand puppies so far. I enjoy serving the Master at ServiceMaster.
