The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) Announces a Series of Promotions

Continued growth of the Association provides opportunities for new roles for key staff members

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) recently announced a series of internal promotions. Dominique Stumpf, NPMA’s chief executive officer said promoting team members from within is a key part of their culture.

“Recognizing leadership qualities and tenure, as well as strong relationships with our members and the industry, provide an opportunity for growth within the NPMA organization,” Stumpf said. “These staffers exemplify the strong qualities we need to grow as an organization and support the pest management industry.”

Andy Architect, former chief industry relations officer who has served with NPMA for 14 years in a variety of positions, has been promoted to chief of staff. Architect is an integral part of the executive team for NPMA and will continue to serve as the conduit for our strategic industry partners, as well as lead the public policy, QualityPro and technical teams.

In his new role, Architect will also be responsible for overseeing marketing, membership and our state association management teams.


Megan Moloney, who has served with NPMA for 8 years as the former meetings manager, has been promoted to director of meetings. Moloney recently received the prestigious CMP (certified meeting planner) designation, which is only awarded after rigorous training and testing.

In addition to her role in assisting with all national meetings and the annual convention, Moloney will be responsible for exhibit management and regional conferences.


Jake Plevelich, who has served with NPMA for 3 years as the public policy manager, has been promoted to public policy director.

In his new role, Plevelich will be responsible for overseeing a growing SPAR (State Policy Affairs Representative) program, taking a more active role in managing the NPMA PestPac, and fostering new relationships with like-minded trade groups and Capitol Hill offices.


“Our employees work hard to support the industry and our members, I simply couldn’t be more proud to have them all on our team,” Stumpf went on to say.
