The team

Jason Sayre President

My vision for platinum pest is to make it the most well managed and profitable pest control company in the world. Platinum is a company who puts its team members and customers first. The best thing about my job is the freedom to empower my team to make critical decisions and then watch them grow. I love the positive, optimistic energy that comes from all the team members too. My core values are honesty, open mindedness, willingness, acceptance, humility, faith in god and family. When I’m not working, I enjoy basketball, working out, watching my daughter play volleyball, spending time with my children and grandchildren and helping others.

Michael Panichi VP/Director of HR

My vision for Platinum is to continue to provide our customers with the best pest control services in the world, while creating an atmosphere where our employees love to work. I’m very fortunate that my two business partners are my best friends. I love the fact that we started this from nothing and that we’ve created jobs and opportunities for people.  My Platinum family works tirelessly for us, which is why we do exactly the same for them. It’s also why I believe the two most important values of our five core values are compassion and positive, optimistic energy. When I’m not working, my favorite activity is spending time with my family, especially my nieces and nephew, Arina, Camryn, and Carson. When it comes to my least favorite bug? Definitely the centipede.

Ken Williams Co-Owner/ Director of Purchasing

I’m focused on creating a wonderful experience for all employees and customers on our journey to become a top company in the world. The best thing about my job is helping my co-workers and team members solve problems that seem unsolvable. The one thing I’ve learned about running a business is the first business you’ll ever run is yourself. Figure yourself out, and the rest will usually fall into place. What I love most about Platinum is the culture and our values. Integrity and perseverance are at the core of what we do really well. When I’m not working, I love a good meal and watching sports. My favorite bug? The infamous bed bug.

Brandon Gile Director of Operations

My goal for Platinum is to help us grow, so we can continue to provide people with the same great opportunities I was given. I truly enjoy running sales training, sales calls and introducing Platinum to new customers and new members of the team. I’m being honest when I say I love my job, my team and the culture at Platinum. Our core values are at the heart of everything I do. I’m also a proud father, husband and Christian. When I’m not working, I enjoy playing guitar, piano and singing – and hosting a good party! If I had to choose a favorite bug it would be the Praying Mantis.

Ryan Kahl Director of Sales

Platinum is not only a career to me, but also my passion. It is truly an honor to work for such an amazing company and help grow it to our full potential. My favorite part of Platinum’s development is guiding new customers through or onboarding process and welcoming them to the Platinum family. My goal is to provide the best customer service experience imaginable. When I am away from Platinum, I enjoy spending time with my family and enjoying the outdoors at our farm in Wisconsin. My favorite insect is the cricket because they make excellent fishing bait!

Jackie Hernandez Director of Administration

I want to deliver customer service to the highest degree, solving issues for the customer and putting them at ease. My job is to constantly think, “how can I make this better?” What I love most about Platinum is that I get to manage a great group of people and work with an amazing team! I feel like Platinum is my home. My values of ambition, drive, creativity and happiness are the same values of the company. In my free time, I love to paint. I love to run. I love to make memories and go to new places. I do not have a favorite bug. I hate all bugs!

Greg Johnson Branch Manager - Lansing

My job is all about being the best manager I can be. I love helping people get better. I also really enjoy providing my customers with the peace of mind that a great service is being performed. What I enjoy most about Platinum are the people and the environment. When I show up at work every day, I try to bring my commitment to my family, spirituality and dedication to everything I do. In my free time, I love relaxing with loved ones, celebrating holidays and birthdays. My favorite bug is the bed bug. It was the first pest I experienced in the field and I really enjoy helping people get rid of them.

Cameron Van Kammen Branch Opening Manager

My goal is to make Platinum a worldwide company so everyone can benefit from our excellent services and superb customer service. It truly is the best in the world! Our employees are my favorite part of Platinum. We have incredible people throughout the company who teach me how to be a great team member, employee, and person. The most important value to me is to dream big. I have big goals inside and outside Platinum and I believe we can achieve them. The best part about my job is all of the amazing people I get to meet and work with. When I am not working you can find me on my couch watching tv or out in the wilderness biking, camping, and hiking with my wife and dog. My favorite insect is the cockroach for its resilience.

Sonya Pulvers
Sonya Pulvers K9 Manager

As a part of the Platinum family, I see a positive future of helping communities become healthier by controlling the pests that lower quality of life for residents. I love helping property managers handle bed bug issues in their buildings, easing tenants’ fears and providing an overall positive experience when it comes to K9 Inspections. More specifically, I want to change misconceptions on K9 inspections and eliminate the idea that “bed bugs” are a social status problem. What I love most about my job is the ability to help my customers and put them at ease, the family environment in the office and of course the dogs! When I’m not working, I love spending time with my grandkids and relaxing. My favorite bug is the bed bug. They are smart and interesting creatures. My least favorite? Cockroaches.
