WASHINGTON, D.C. — PCT recognized its 2009 Technicians of the Year during a special ceremony at NPMA Legislative Day. The annual awards program, sponsored by BASF Pest Control Solutions, recognizes a trio of standout service professionals in the residential, commercial and termite categories.

PCT Internet Editor and Managing Editor Harbison noted that it was “fitting to make this presentation here in our Nation’s Capital, as our country’s legislators make so many decisions that impact how service professionals perform their job.

“As I’ve heard other speakers say, ‘service technicians are the lifeblood of any pest control company,’ which is why it’s been PCT’s privilege to present our annual Technician of the Year Awards program the past 14 years.”

Harbison then presented this year’s awards to:

Residential Technician of the Year
Randy Miller
Orkin Pest Control
Taylors, S.C.

Commercial Technician of the Year
Rob Van Willigen
Batzner Pest Management
New Berlin, Wisc.

Termite Technician of the Year
Sean Young
HomeTeam Pest Defense
Houston Texas

During the past 14 years PCT has recognized 43 Technicians of the Year and more than 200 finalists from companies throughout the U.S. of various size and make-up. These technicians set the standards for the industry through their hard work, dedication and professionalism. The 2010 awards program will be launched in April.
