If we know anything in this industry, it’s that pests don’t stop. Cockroaches continue developing behavioral aversion and resistance, while mosquitoes and ticks threaten public health with emerging and increasing infectious diseases like the Zika virus and Lyme disease. Thankfully, our industry continues to face and overcome these challenges. Syngenta is grateful for your services and dedication to success as pest management professionals.

Syngenta and Pest Control Technology are excited to announce a new class of Crown Leadership Award winners. Our 29-year partnership continues to recognize the extraordinary achievements of some of the hardest-working professionals in this industry.

Congratulations to the Class of 2017 Crown Leadership Award winners: Dr. Nan-Yao Su, University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS); Juan Angulo, Superior Angran; Stuart Aust, Anticimex; John Myers, Rentokil Steritech; and Wayne Golden, Rollins, Inc. The Lifetime Achievement Award winner, chosen by industry peers for his or her outstanding achievements in pest management, will be announced during the Crown Leadership Awards ceremony at PestWorld 2017. We are proud to honor these winners, who have positively impacted the industry through their leadership, dedication and commitment.

This year, Syngenta has continued its commitment to help meet the challenges you face. Most recently, we introduced Advion® Evolution and Optigard® Cockroach Gel Baits, featuring enhanced bait matrices and a new active ingredient for cockroach control. We continue to introduce new SecureChoice™ assurance programs to help you control important pests like mosquitoes, ticks, scorpions, spiders and fire ants. Meanwhile, we offer all of the products in our portfolio, including brands like Demand® CS insecticide and Advion, through our PestPartners™ 365 Program. While you help customers on the ground, we’re standing by with the tools and support to help your business perform at its best.

Congratulations again to the Class of 2017 Crown Leadership Awards recipients! Thank you for your vital role in helping us live life uninterrupted by pests.
