PCT and Syngenta will recognize five industry professionals at NPMA PestWorld as 2018 Crown Leadership Award winners. This is the 30-year anniversary of the awards program which was has honored more than 250 industry professionals since its inception. The 2018 winners are:
- Dave Fisher, Rentokil Steritech, Reading, Pa.
- Jerry Gahlhoff, Rollins Inc., Atlanta, Ga.
- Karl Kisner, Univar Environmental Sciences, Austin, Texas
- Dan Collins, Collins Pest Management, Evansville, Ind.
- Dr. Faith Oi, University of Florida, Gainesville, Fla.
“It’s been 30 years since PCT and Syngenta began recognizing individuals who have contributed positively to the growth and development of the structural pest control industry, and I believe this year’s class carries on the tradition of that inaugural class, as well as subsequent classes,” said PCT Publisher Dan Moreland.
Since 1989, the Crown Leadership Awards have been presented annually to pest management professionals, university educators, industry distributors and association officials who uphold the highest standards of industry ethics, while contributing their time and talent to a broad range of professional and civic organizations.
PCT and Syngenta will honor this year’s winners during a special ceremony to be held during NPMA PestWorld 2018 in Orlando, Fla. Also at the ceremony, PCT and Syngenta will present a “Lifetime Achievement Award” to a past Crown Leadership Award winner, as voted on by previous honorees.
