Your Fox Valley Team
Tom began working for EC as a cleaner during high school. He left for college but worked off and on for EC through his grad school years. Over the course of 20 years, Tom has also done it all. He became Executive Vice President of EC in 1996, managing all of the company’s Support & Development functions, including human resources, information systems, sales and marketing, and ongoing research & development. In 2002, Tom took on the management of EC Operations. In 2014, upon John Lamb’s retirement, Tom took on the role of CEO of the company.
Tom has had a lifelong passion for music and, if he were not working for EC, he’d likely be working in the music industry. He is a singer/songwriter and guitarist, and thanks to the encouragement and support of his wife, Melody, has produced a number of CDs in his home recording studio.
Melody joined Environment Control in 2015 on a part-time basis to provide additional support for recruiting. In 2016, after successful careers as marketing director for Intervarsity Christian Fellowship’s Urbana Student Missions Conference, and then raising a very busy family, Melody moved into the challenging full-time role of accounting upon Jan Concklin’s retirement, while continuing to lend her marketing talents and skills to the company’s recruitment efforts. In 2017, recognizing her true passion for helping people and her interest in reaching out to and welcoming the diverse communities around us, Melody moved into the role of Director of Recruitment and Outreach for the company.
Outside of the office, Melody pursues her creative passions as a writer, poet, and published author, and as a photographer. Born into a missionary family, Melody developed a deep interest in and respect for international cultures, traditions, travel, and cuisines.
David has worked with Environment Control since 1992. He has moved through the ranks, doing it all: cleaner, Special Services team member, Special Services Manager, Operations Manager in Madison, Operations manager of our Fox Valley branch, Regional Business Development Manager, Director of Sales. In 2013 David was promoted to Vice President of Sales in recognition of his accomplishments. In 2017, David took up the challenge of leading company Operations as Chief Operations Officer. David has a wealth of skills and experience in all aspects of cleaning operations, sales, and business development.
Married to Gina (also a longtime EC employee), David likes to play disc golf in his free time, which, unfortunately, with 3 children does not happen often enough.
With a degree in business and risk management in hand, Tom was hired in 1992 as Facility Manager for a large downtown facility. He supervised a crew of 20 cleaners. When the job of Human Resources Manager opened, Tom brought his education and experience in the field to the areas of Recruiting and HR. He understands the needs of field and office staff, recruiting and administrative processes, and is a skilled navigator through the complexities of employment law and insurance. Tom was promoted to Director of Human Resources in 2013. In 2017 he moved into the role of Vice President of Support & Development, shifting away from recruiting and taking on accounting (being extremely good with numbers.) In 2020 Tom added Madison Operations to his portfolio of responsibilities, taking on the job with gusto.
Tom is a sports fan and follows his favorite teams faithfully. He also enjoys karate, snowboarding, and disc golf. In 2002, Tom and his wife, Susan, have two children, both enthusiastic hockey players, which means a lot of travel for weekend tournaments.
Maria came to Environment Control in 2016 and since then has truly helped us build a strong network of referrals for recruitment. She is bilingual and also makes really delicious tamales, which she occasionally shares with her coworkers, much to their delight.
April has been with Environment Control hiring like crazy for our growing Greater Milwaukee branch operations. She is an awesome recruiting force of nature and doesn't break too many cell phones (although she won't admit it).
Eduardo joined Environment Control in 2018 as Operations Manager in Madison. Before moving to Madison, he was based in Eau Claire working for a company that had him managing a multi-state territory. He was glad to be able to focus on serving a smaller geographical area with more diverse customers. Eduardo is serious when it comes to work but also enjoys a good celebration.
Gaby joined Environment Control along with her husband, Eduardo Garcia, in 2018 as Sales Representative for the Madison area. She really enjoys helping new customers design the service plan that fits their specific needs. Gaby has been steadily cultivating prospects and adding to our new customer base in south-central Wisconsin. She also loves to laugh.
Miguel is a classic Environment Control "boomerang employee." He joined Environment Control a few years ago as a Sales Representative, then left for a period of time, then recently returned when the opportunity arose to work in both Operations and Sales based at our Appleton office. Always friendly, Miguel can tell you a lot about cars and his sales philosophy. In late 2020 Miguel was promoted to the position of Senior Operations Manager assisting the Operations Managers in our Fox Valley and Milwaukee branches while focusing more on sales in Fox Valley. We are glad he's growing with us.
Brian took on our second Madison Operations Manager position with Environment Control in 2019, bringing with him a wealth of facilities maintenance, management, and customer service experience in Madison and Milwaukee. Brian's skills and knowledge are helping daily to raise our level of service quality, consistency, and responsiveness. We are glad to have you with us! In 2021 Brian took advantage of the opportunity to become the Operations Manager over our Greater Milwaukee Area branch, allowing him to work a little closer to his home turf.
Heather joined Environment Control in late 2019 after a previous career in Janitorial Operations and Sales. Starting out in Operations, she never thought she would enjoy doing sales work. However, once she gave it a try, she really loved it. What does she really like about it? She likes talking with people and helping match them with the services they really need. Thanks to her our company has been gaining new customers steadily. Welcome aboard, Heather!
Noemi came to Environment Control from another cleaning company in late 2020. Looking for new opportunities, she took on the position of Operations Manager for our Fox Cities / Green Bay branch. Noemi brings a wealth of experience and professionalism, as well as a positive attitude, to the Operations Manager position. We welcome her to our growing branch.
