Tom Wharton

PHILADELPHIA —  FMC Professional Solutions recently honored Key Accounts Manager Tom Wharton with the Sales Excellence Award for his going "above and beyond" to serve customers in 2012. In addition, the company awarded Market Specialist Arnold Ramsey with the FMC Safety Award, a new award recognizing employees who forward the company's mission of "safety first."
    
Tom Wharton has been with FMC for eight years, first as a territory business manager and now as key accounts manager. He received the award for his willingness to work closely and strategically with his customers, including pest control companies and distributors, as well as his dedication to the industry as a whole.

"Tom embodies the spirit of sales excellence," said Bob West, national pest segment manager. "His focus is on problem solving, business building and long-term relationships, and we are so happy to have the chance to recognize all his hard work." 
   
Wharton lives with his wife, son and daughter in Moore, SC. He is a native Southerner, having grown up with agricultural roots in the Mississippi Delta. He received a bachelor's degree in agronomy and a master's degree in weed science and entomology from Mississippi State University.
   
Tom was "completely surprised" to win the award, and credits his customers for pushing him to excellence. "What I like about the pest control industry and FMC is the same thing—that entrepreneurial spirit," he said. "I also appreciate my customer's openness and honesty; as a team, we can continue to grow this industry even more."   

Arnold Ramsey
Arnold Ramsey received the inaugural FMC Safety Award for his help keeping FMC Professional Solutions employees safe. Ramsey helped design the "Near Miss" mobile application, which allows employees to document and report near-miss incidents immediately and without cumbersion paperwork. Employees can send detailed incident reports via smart phone or tablet, including photos and videos, so analysis of incidents is more immediate and changes to problematic systems can be made sooner. 
   
"Arnold has a passion for and dedication to safety for his colleagues and his customers," said David Torska, market commercial development manager for FMC. "By developing this program, he will help many people avoid accidents at work and home. Thank you, Arnold!" 
   
Based in Columbus, Ohio, Ramsey handles sales in eleven states across the Midwest. He has been with FMC for 20 years, starting as a formulations chemistry technician, and working as a technical service representative in the company’s Philadelphia headquarters and research center.  He received a degree in chemistry from San Diego State University. He has been married to Sonya for 27 years; they have three children.
   
"This award is special to me because safety is a core value of FMC that I wholly embrace," said Ramsey. "There is nothing more important than our greatest asset—our people."
   
"Every day these guys get up and give it 110%," said Bethwyn Todd, global director of FMC Professional Solutions. "We are inspired by their dedication and congratulate them on their success."
