Prior to joining RealPage, Chaney held the position of Group President at Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: JKHY) and was the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Select Payment Processing, Inc., a SaaS payment processing platform he successfully sold to Jack Henry & Associates. Chaney grew up in Richardson, Texas, and holds a Bachelor of Computer Science from Texas Christian University.     “PestRoutes is an innovative, well-respected and rapidly growing technology company, and I’m excited to join this customer-obsessed team,” said William Chaney, PestRoutes chief executive officer. “A benchmark of our success has been and will remain measured by our customers’ revenue growth. We will continue to invest in our industry-leading platform to enable our customers to attract and win more business, to be more competitive in their markets and increase productivity within their operations. PestRoutes’ customer-focused company culture of integrity, service and collaboration is the foundation upon which we will continue to grow and deliver amazing customer experiences.”     Since 2012, PestRoutes has grown to serve over 1,500 residential and commercial pest control and field services companies automating all aspects of their operations, including route optimization, real-time technician tracking, customer communications, scheduling and billing.
