Gregg Schumaker has joined East Granby, Conn.-based Wildlife Control Supplies (WCS) as director of business and product development.
“Gregg is absolutely the right person for this job. He is a highly respected wildlife professional and has the experience and knowledge needed to help WCS continue to expand its services to our industry and its customers,” said Alan Huot, who co-founded WCS with his wife, Carol.
Schumaker started his career in wildlife with the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), managing various projects. He has also held positions with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the National Park Service. He has owned and operated Wildlife Management & Nuisance Removal Inc. in northern Michigan for more than 25 years, and has held various leadership positions with the Nuisance Wildlife Control Operators Association (NWCOA), including president. Most recently, he served as NWCOA’s training director, where he focused on expanding the association’s training offerings and enrollment.
“WCS is very excited to have Gregg join the team, as he will help us to continue to improve our level of service, expertise, and introduce new and effective products — all things that WCS has been known for from its beginnings in 1998,” WCS President Dave Kresge said in a news release.
In addition to offering a large selection of wildlife and animal handling equipment and materials, Wildlife Control Supplies also has the experience and expertise to help train and troubleshoot with professionals to handle even the most difficult commercial, residential or industrial situations. Beyond carrying the most popular (as well as up-and-coming) products, the company has also developed WCS Premium Grade Bait products and breakthrough inventions such as the Collarum, Tube Trap, Sparrow Sled, Multi-Catch Rodent Trap, NoMol, Special Squirrel Trap and Coontroller, along with many more in response to customer needs.
