Meet Rob Greer:
Rob Greer’s entrepreneurial journey began with hands-on experience in the family truck parts business and farming, fostering a deep connection with nature and animal care, including raising horses and cattle. Seeking a different path from shoe sales, he ventured into pest control sales in 2001, supporting his university studies and a two-year service mission in Santiago de Chile, where he became fluent in Spanish.
After earning a Business Management degree with a marketing emphasis from BYU, Rob, along with partners Lenny Gray and McKay Bodily, launched a Rove Pest Control branch in Minnesota. Rob played a crucial role in expanding Rove Pest Control from one branch to five. His focus on team member development, public health awareness, and aligning services with community needs has shaped a culture centered on giving. This philosophy is rooted in Education, Preparation, Investigation, and Completion principles.
In 2010, Rob embarked on a remarkable health journey, shedding 75 pounds over 12 years while developing a passion for ultra-running, obstacle-course racing, and rock climbing. His achievements include sub-24-hour hundred-mile races, 80 miles at World’s Toughest Mudder, and a top-five finish in a 314-mile race across Tennessee.
Recent years have seen Rob conquering climbing challenges, scaling Devil’s Tower, Grand Teton, and various crags. Annually, he embarks on a weeklong, self-supported journey, running across a state with only his running pack as a reminder of resilience and the willingness of strangers to help.
Rob’s expertise extends to contributions as a subject matter expert for the MN Dept of Agriculture, the EPA, and the Quality Pro Customer Service Credential Task Force. He has also testified in the MN state legislature as a State Policy Affairs Representative.
Beyond his professional pursuits, Rob is a dedicated husband and father of three. He serves as the president of the Minnesota Pest Management Association Board and supports the charitable nonprofit organization, Fostering Love Project, which aids children entering foster care and their caregivers.
