MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Less than a year after being named to the post, Tom Brackett (above) has resigned as president of TruGreen LawnCare.

The news was announced in an Oct. 12 SEC filing by TruGreen’s parent company ServiceMaster.

Brackett resigned effective Oct. 9, according to the filing, and will be replaced on an interim basis by ServiceMaster CEO Hank Mullany.

Brackett moved to TruGreen from Terminix when Stephen Donly resigned as president in May 2011. For seven months, he oversaw the lawn care company while continuing his role as president and CEO of Terminix. Brackett was named president in December 2011.
