RALEIGH – Mark C. Flynn of Charlotte was named the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Employee of the Month. Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler presented him with a plaque and shirt in recognition.
Flynn, who has worked with the Structural Pest Control and Pesticides Division for almost 10 years, was recognized for his dedication to his job and to homeowners in his inspection district. In September, Flynn conducted a routine investigation of a neighborhood under construction and determined that the termite prevention was improperly treated on more than 30 sites. Flynn worked long hours inspecting records, interviewing company employees and visiting more than 50 sites to ensure proper treatment.
“Through timely and tedious negotiation with the pest control company, Mark’s work was able to ensure that the property owners received the proper treatment to protect their homes. This may have saved the homeowners thousands of dollars in termite damage,” said Fynn's supervisor Rick Reid. “Mark’s overall work performance is the definition of customer service.”
Flynn and his wife, Renee, have two sons, Samuel, 16, and Andrew, 12. He enjoys geocaching, is a local precinct poll worker and volunteers with the Boy Scouts. Flynn graduated from East Mecklenburg High School and attended Western Carolina University.
