Managing Director
Michael Taylor
Managing Director

Michael has a wealth of experience providing professional bird, pest and environmental services primarily to the commercial market across the UK.  Since starting the business in 2004 Michael has spearheaded its development into one of the leading providers of bird and pest control services in the UK. 

 

 

Michael's passion for animals, and especially bird of prey, stems from his childhood where at the age of 11 he was introduced to the world of falconry. He began his career right then!

From these beginnings, and his passion for design, media and film which he was studying at college, he found his career take a turn when he was offered a role as an animal trainer / handler working for the Harry Potter franchise. After leaving the role he returned to the North East and started the business after identifying a niche in the market. 

The business has continued to grow and develop, upskilling both himself and bringing in industry experts to help in the development of the company. We now provide a range of support services aimed specifically at our target markets.

As a company Contego works with many construction companies, facilities management companies as well as a large range of blue chip commercial companies. Michael has always aimed to grow and develop the company by providing real solutions to you, the customer. 

Michael's aim is to focus on innovation, strategy, staff development and operations to ensure a sustainable, competitive advantage and create long term working partnerships with clients. 

Our core business services include Pest Control, Bird control & Proofing and Industrial / Commercial Cleaning.

Michael is also involved personally with Falcons and Falconry in the UAE.

Business Development Manager
Andy Thompson
Business Development Manager

Andy Thompson is the Business Development Manager for South West and South Wales, his pest control history started for him at the age of 10 dealing with rats and rabbits on local farms for pocket money before leaving school in and around the New Forest where he grew up.

His Commercial Pest Prevention career started in 1993, during this 24-year period there isn’t really any situation that Andy has not had to deal with across the industry, from fumigating Prison Ships to working in the Houses of Parliament helping to control textile moths and preventing damage to priceless historic tapestries and furnishings.

Over his career, he has specialised in Bird Management & Deterrent Systems, Wildlife Management, Falconry, Habitat Management as well as the more standard Pest Prevention programmes for Rodent and Insect infestations.

He has worked in R &D with Exosect a specialist pheromone development company, taking new products to market across Europe and the USA, working in close partnership with the scientific teams behind the products development, giving a unique insight to Pest Prevention practices globally.

“My longevity in the Pest Prevention industry has allowed me to witness many changes over the years, especially recently with the introduction of the European Biocide Directive which is completely re-shaping the way the industry deals with rodent control in a positive way. My main philosophy is that the client comes first “Brand” protection is key in this time of social media and instant exposure to any negative situation, a consultative and methodical approach ensures the best outcome is achieved every time.”

National Sales Manager - London Office
Lance Moller
National Sales Manager - London Office

Lance Moller is our Pest Control Consultant  for the London and the South East office. He oversees the sales, estimating and mobilisation of local and regional contracts, and supports our operations team in its day-to-day activities.

Lance has worked within the pest control world for 13 years and has gained a considerable amount of experience in several roles such as National Key Accounts, Tender Evaluations, Site Surveyor and as a Service Technician in both the UK and Denmark. This has been underpinned by excellent technical and pest biology knowledge with rodents, insects, and pest birds which are key to giving best advice, the correct customer service solution and great customer relations that Contego provides.

 

Lance is a very keen sea angler and has fished across the country either sat on a beach or 35 miles out in a boat in the English Channel. His little claim to fame was that he was screen tested for Master Chef in 2011, but did not make the final 24. He is married to Maria who hails from Denmark, hence the connection with his pest control experience of working in that country.

Lance ultimately reports to Michael Taylor at the Contego Head Office in County Durham.
