Our mission is to provide a best in class

pest management experience, based on

professional work ethics and

delivering outstanding customer care.

Paula and brother-in-law David started the company back in 2009. David, having worked in the pest control industry for over 20 years, had become disillusioned and wanted to start making a difference within the industry. With Paula’s marketing background CDP was born from a small acorn.

Ben came on board at the end of 2013 as our customer base increased. He successfully qualified at the beginning of 2015.

Our newest addition to the team is Chris. Chris has come from a background of sales, operations and logistics. Opportunity and circumstance provided the right climate for him to be able to join the family business in March 2015. By bringing his knowledge of sales and operations to the table, CDP is looking at exciting times ahead.


Our team of specialists are not only part of the CDP Family… some of us are family, as you’ll see from the common surname.

We like to think we’re a little different… but we all love PUTTING PESTS TO REST!

Allow us to introduce ourselves…

Paula Johnson


Paula’s passion is her dog “Stig” a miniature Schnauzer. Her favourite place to be is on Dartmoor or failing that in France with a smooth glass of Vin Rouge!

Paula started working life in Sports Sponsorship and Hospitality working with some of the UK’s top sporting stars. She helped manage the sponsorship and hospitality of clients at UK domestic athletic events, golfing days, truck racing and motorsport.

Paula likes to keep fit by kick boxing and running, especially tough mudders!

Chris Johnson


Chris’s passion is WW1, especially exploring the western Front battlefields. If you ask him nicely he may even give you a rendition of his favourite war film quotes!

Chris comes from a background in sales working in the logistics and parcel industry for over 20 years. Chris is a strong leader and is now leading the way to making CDP bigger and better and to show the pest control industry you don’t have to be old and stuffy!

Chris loves football and is an avid follower of Crystal Palace FC “Eagles”! and plays 5-a-side every week.

David Johnson


David’s passion is World of Tanks – he likes nothing better than getting down and dirty on the PC zeroing in on the enemy tanks.

Upon leaving school David decided to train as a chef. He worked with some of the top chefs during his younger years. David’s time as a chef proved invaluable when we started getting interest from restaurants and food manufacturers.

After a few years David decided he wanted a complete career change. To make best use of his hygiene qualifications, pest control seemed the solution. Hence his 20 years experience in the industry.

David is very creative thinking and loves nothing better than making models of planes.

Ben Lawton


Ben’s passion is Beer, particularly craft beer, and guitar. Mercifully he chooses to play to an audience of one, himself, and therefore the world is a better place.

Ben started back in the very early days of Direct Line Insurance, running a team of his own and then moved across to running the phone systems. He even recorded the “thank you for waiting” messages that were played 20+ million times a year throughout the 90’s.

In the mid 90’s Ben’s hobby was online gaming and he started an ISP which grew over 4 years to become the UK’s 4th largest ISP before moving onto Sony.



We work with the very best. We are proud of what we do and who we do it for and work together to deliver the best in pest control.


No request is too big or too small for our team.
If it matters to you, it matters to us.
