At NPMA PestWorld in October, PCT and Syngenta took time to recognize five individuals chosen as 2017 Crown Leadership Award winners, during a special reception. This year’s winners were:

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.

The winners were profiled in a special edition of PCT, which was mailed with the October issue. Additionally, the winners’ profiles are online here:

“PCT and our sponsor, Syngenta, are delighted to recognize this year’s Leadership winners, all of whom have contributed positively to the growth and development of the structural pest control industry, as well as established ties with fellow business leaders, civic groups and customers in their local communities,” said PCT Publisher Dan Moreland.

“If we know anything in the pest management industry, it’s that pests just don’t stop. Cockroaches, mosquitoes, ticks are continuously evolving and threatening the state of public health across the country. Other pests, like ants, spiders and rodents, continue to find new ways to invade structures and become a nuisance,” said Pat Willenbrock, head of marketing, Professional Pest Management, Syngenta North America. “As an industry, we’re fortunate to have so many dedicated individuals who aren’t afraid to face and overcome these challenges, and who inspire others to do the same.”
