Assured Environments claims to be New York region’s largest and most effective pest management company, safeguarding landmark properties since 1934, with comprehensive solutions that combine the right people, training, and technology.
Daniel Klein, Bob’s father, started Allied Exterminating in 1934, building a thriving pest control company within New York City. In 1964 he asked his eldest son to come aboard and run the company. The two proved to be a dynamic team, acquiring six pest control companies in New York along the way. It was only a matter of time before Bob Klein turned Allied Exterminating into the powerhouse that is Assured Environments.
Unfortunately, with the passing of his father in 1977, Bob Klein was left without the council he had sought for the prior 13 years while running the company, not to mention the last 35 years of his life. But Bob continued to look forward to the day he could do the same for his sons. In 1989, he was able to fulfill that dream when his son Andrew entered the business. In 1994, Andrew Klein took over the role of president, with his father staying on in an advisory position as the CEO. Both Andrew and Bob continue to drive the company in the same direction as Daniel Klein envisioned when he started the company, providing quality service to every customer.
Today, Assured Environments is the oldest, largest, unionized pest solutions provider in the New York region. Employing over 150 office personnel and field technicians, Assured Environments services homes and businesses throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Assured Environments is also part of a nationwide alliance known as Copesan, through which it offers quality pest control services throughout all of North America. Assured Environments was rated the 21st largest, privately held pest Control Company in the United States in 2010, and to this day, it has Bob Klein overseeing operations as Chief Executive Officer.
Bob Klein received his Bachelor’s degree in business in 1964 from the NYU School of Commerce, currently known as the Stern School of Business. Mr. Klein belonged to Tau Epsilon Pi and was class president during his freshman and senior years. Mr. Klein is currently a visiting professor at New York University teaching classes that focus on entrepreneurship.
Bob Klein has served on the Board of Director’s at the Children’s Hearing Institute since 2005. Mr. Klein also attended Harvard Business School’s “Owner, President, Manager Program” during the early 1980s.
