PCT and Syngenta will recognize five industry professionals at NPMA PestWorld as 2019 Crown Leadership Award winners. This year’s class is the 31st group of industry professionals (more than 260 individuals) to be honored since the awards’ inception. The 2019 winners are:

  • Tom Jarzynka, Massey Services, Orlando, Fla.
  • Ray Meyers, RJM Contracting, Lake Mary, Fla.
  • Claudia Riegel, City of New Orleans Mosquito, Termite & Rodent Control Board, New Orleans, La.
  • Ben Walker, Gregory Pest Solutions, Greenville, S.C.
  • Gene White, Rentokil Steritech, White Lake, Mich.

“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 1988, 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.

Please join PCT and Syngenta Professional Pest Management in honoring the Class of 2019.

PCT and Syngenta will honor this year’s winners during a special ceremony to be held during NPMA PestWorld 2019 in San Diego. 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.

If you know of a member of the pest control industry you would like to nominate for next year’s awards, email Dan Moreland at dmoreland@gie.net.

Each of this year’s winners will be profiled in a special supplement that is published in conjunction with PCT’s October issue.
