Jan 20, 2022

BASF Names Aguiar Director P&SS Business Management, North America Barbara Aguiar has been named director, Professional & Specialty Solutions (P&SS) Business Management, North America, effective Feb. 1. Barbara Aguiar has been named director, Professional & Specialty Solutions (P&SS) Business Management, North America, effective Feb. 1. She succeeds Stephanie Jensen who recently moved into a new role as vice president, Global Strategic Marketing Insecticides. Aguiar is currently the director, P&SS Global Marketing and Business Development where she provided strong leadership to strategy creation, portfolio management, developing the global P&SS marketing community and driving business development projects, including 3rd party negotiations. Born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Aguiar holds a master’s degree in international affairs from the University of Pittsburgh and a master of business administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Aguiar has been with BASF for 14 years. Prior to joining the P&SS global marketing team Aguiar worked in the areas of communications, branding, industry relations and leadership engagement. “The P&SS business unit is a unique and dynamic part of BASF Agricultural Solutions with some of the most innovative and passionate customers,” said Aguiar. “I look forward to meeting with our customers in person in the coming weeks and months.”   TUCSON, Ariz. – Arizona Pest Control is celebrating 75 years in business by launching an all-new digital collector's project, based on modern technology called NFTs. "Our goal is to tie real-world usage to these digital collectibles, and to provide a tangible service to their respective owners," said Caleb Tennenbaum, marketing director at Arizona Pest Control. "Owners of these NFT collectibles will never worry about paying for pest, termite, or rodent control services again!" The company is stepping into this new and exciting technology as part of its 75th anniversary celebration. The collection is composed of 11 separate tokens with four of those tokens being strictly collectibles and the other seven NFTs having real world utility. The Arizona Pest Control collection is available on the NFT marketplace known as OpenSea. The four collectible NFT’s include the $1 Million Dollar Roach, the $50,000 Roach, Arnold Roachenegger, and Pests Playing Poker. The Million Dollar Roach is a collectible commemorating The Million Dollar Cockroach Contest that was created by Arizona Pest Control in 2000. Arizona Pest Control attached barcodes to cockroaches and released them across the country, offering $1 Million for the correct barcoded cockroach if it was returned. The $50,000 Dollar Roach is a collectible commemorating the $50,000 Cockroach Contest that was created by Arizona Pest Control in 1998. Arizona Pest Control attached barcodes to a cockroach and released it, offering $50,000 if the correct barcoded cockroach was found. Arnold Roachenegger is a collectible commemorating “The World’s Largest Cockroach Contest” that was created by Arizona Pest Control in 1996. Arizona Pest Control offered cash prizes for the person who turned in the largest cockroach. Pests Playing Poker is a collectible to commemorate the Arizona Pest Control thirty second poker commercial. The commercial features the Arizona Pest Control characters from the fifteen second commercials including Roachman, Ray the Rat, Susie the Spider, Terry the Termite, Steve the Scorpion, and Anthony the Ant. The collection also includes seven verifiable tokens on the blockchain that provide real world utility. The collectibles are based on the animated characters in the Arizona Pest Control TV commercials. Anthony the Ant , Steve the Scorpion , and Susie the Spider all provide their owners with a complimentary general pest control service (every other month) for all holders that reside within the Arizona Pest Control service area. Terry the Termite is a verifiable token that provides complimentary termite control services for holders that reside within the Arizona Pest Control service area. Wendy the Wasp is a verifiable token that provides free bee control and wasp control for the holder of the verifiable token. Ray the Rat is verifiable for complimentary rodent control services (mice and rats) for any holder that resides within the Arizona Pest Control service area. Roachman is a verifiable token for complimentary pest control services, termite control, rodent control (mice and rats), and bee/wasp control services for any holder that resides within the Arizona Pest Control service area. Tennenbaum added, “I wanted us to be the first pest control company to enter the NFT space, but I wanted to make sure the collection had real world utility. Once a user purchases one of our utility NFT’s they get access to an unlockable item which allows them to claim their service from us. The blockchain is going to transform many industries over the next 3 years and the pest control industry is no exception. I encourage other PCO’s to get involved and learn about the possibilities with the blockchain. The implications of the blockchain are greater or equal to that of the printing press.” The tokens can be purchased or sold by their respective owners at any time and Arizona Pest Control has pledged that 10% of all royalty (secondary) sales on the four commemorative collectible tokens will be donated to local school districts in the greater Tucson region to further develop the local Tucson community. The entire Arizona Pest Control NFT collection can be viewed on OpenSea by visiting: https://opensea.io/collection/arizonapestcontrol-75-years NEWARK, Calif. — Morgan Silva has joined Neudorff USA as Coastal California sales manager.
