Meet Our Team!

Brad Drawdy

Brad purchased the business in January of 2006 from its founders, Robert D. Peeples and Jeff Hirschfeld. He has 27 years of experience in the pest control business. Brad is a Master Pest Control Technician, Master Termite Technician, and Wood Infestation Inspector, certified by Clemson University. He began his career with Gressette Pest Control Company in Orangeburg, SC, and spent 8 years there; four in the Orangeburg office and another four in the Charleston office.

In 2001, Brad went to work for Food Lion Distribution Center #3 in Elloree, SC as the Pest Control Manager. As you can imagine pest management is critical in food distribution operations and Brad was provided extensive training. Brad has served the pest control industry as secretary for the Greater Charleston Pest Control Association and the Charleston/Low Country Area Director for the South Carolina Pest Control Association.

Wanting to return to the Lowcountry, Brad bought Apex of Edisto and feels that Edisto has been a part of his entire life, from growing up on the banks of the Edisto River to visiting and vacationing here for nearly 40 years.

Matthew Mellersten

Matt began working for Apex of Edisto  in 2013. He grew up on Edisto Island and most everyone on the island knows him, respects him, and appreciates his work ethic. He has the South Carolina Pesticide Applicator License, passed courses with Clemson University in Apprentice Termite Technician, Master Termite Technician, and Master Pest Control Technician. Matt’s hobbies include hunting, fishing, drag racing, welding, and working on heavy equipment and automobiles with his dad.

Doug McLeod

Doug was Apex’s first technician hire in 2011. A Citadel Alumni, teaching history and political science and coaching soccer and archery at Northwoods Academy, with a background in the pest control industry working for Carr Exterminators, he fit right in as a part-time technician working for us on weekends and during the summer. Some clients still request him to do their work and will wait until he is available to have their services performed.

Alex Cook

Alex began working for Apex while attending the College of Charleston as part-time help. He fit right in with our motto “Doing the Right Thing”. He went above and beyond caring for each client as if it were his house. After graduating, he went into boat and yacht sales. That career path placed him on the road away from the Coast of Charleston that he loves. He decided to come back to us full-time so he could enjoy his favorite hobby of surfing. He travels the world surfing on his vacation time and weekends. He also passed the Clemson University termite courses of Apprentice and Master Termite Technician and will be attending the next Master Pest Control Technician course once it is made available.
