Thomas Ballantyne began his career with Bulwark Exterminating as a pest control technician when they first opened their doors in Austin Texas. He left to pursue a Business degree, earning a BSB/MKT from University of Phoenix Online. During that time he launched a wedding photography business, and learned how to rank #1 for Phoenix Wedding Photographer, back when local search was long tail SEO. In 2006, Thomas returned to Bulwark to work as the executive secretary of the CEO. At that time Bulwark only had a webpage under construction. Thomas has gone from building Bulwark's first website, to seeing Bulwark rank #6 nationally for "Pest Control."
