St. Louis, MO, Dec. 8, 2016– Michael Rottler, president of Rottler Pest & Lawn Solutions, has been elected chair of Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) Board of Directors, effective Jan. 1, 2017.


Rottler succeeds Scott Mosby, chief executive of Mosby Building Arts. Mosby remains on the board as immediate past chair.

BBB board members elected Rottler and other officers Nov. 7 at BBB’s annual meeting. The others elected were:

  •  Vice Chair— Kevin Deptula, president and chief executive of Builder’s Bloc Contracting.
