Tony Poulsen

Tony started his career with Rentokil Initial in the Hygiene and Wellbeing category in 1994. He moved to the Pest Management category as the General Manager, New Zealand, soon after. His in-depth knowledge of the market soon led him to work closely with one of the worlds largest Dairy manufacturers and the kaitiaki kai (guardians of safe food) then AgriQuality, now AsureQuality. He is a firm believer in the stringent and consistent management of risks that pests pose across the length of the supply chain - from farm to fork. As the Regional Director Operations and M&A , Tony has been based in Singapore since 2010. In this role he has been driven to support and elevate the significance of professional pest management practices across the 14 Rentokil Initial markets in Asia. In particular, he is passionate about how the insights gained from a vast set of internal data can drive targeted actions to reduce the risks that pests pose to our customer partners. He is a member of Rentokil Initials Global Technical Leadership Team and as such has had several decades of exposure across global markets. Tony has a Bachelor of Commerce Degree from Auckland University with a double major in Marketing and Human Resource Management. When he is not immersed in the Rentokil Initial mission of Protecting people, enhancing lives and preserving our planet, he can be found in a boat, at sea, fishing.
