March 10, 2014 -  By

TruGreen President David Alexander gave a glimpse of how the company plans to make a turnaround after spinning off from ServiceMaster when he spoke with the Memphis Business Journal last week.

Here are some points Alexander revealed in the interview:

• TruGreen will spend most of this year focusing on improving internal operations.

• The decision to use Terminix’s operating system was one of the issues that led to the separation.

• TruGreen has about 300 people at its Memphis headquarters and plans to add 100 more in the next two years. ServiceMaster still provides IT and human resources support for TruGreen, which is also leasing space from its former parent company. Alexander expects TruGreen to move out in two years.

• The company plans to grow organically this year and being doing acquisitions again in 2015.
