ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Gary Muldoon, Orkin, Inc. vice president, commercial division, has been recognized as a winner of Pest Control Technology Magazine (PCT) and Syngenta Professional Products' Crown Leadership Awards. Muldoon received the award yesterday in Grapevine, Texas, at PestWorld, the National Pest Management Association's national convention and largest trade show in the pest management industry.
The Crown Leadership Awards began in 1988 and are presented annually to individuals who have contributed positively to the growth and development of the structural pest control industry, as well as established strong ties with fellow business leaders and customers in their communities. These individuals uphold the highest standards of industry ethics and personal integrity.
Muldoon was among eight named as 2006 leaders. He was selected from approximately 50 nominees for his outstanding leadership, team building and customer advocacy. PCT solicits nominations throughout the year.
"Gary is a natural with a keen sense of business acumen," says Orkin President Glen Rollins. "I have unwavering confidence in Gary and am proud of his accomplishments."
Beginning his career with Orkin in 1975 as a technician and salesperson, Muldoon has helped grow Orkin's $300 million commercial division in North America and the company's $68 million Canada operation, Orkin Canada (formerly PCO Services). Personable and hard-working, he is well liked by co-workers and clients alike.
Most notably, Muldoon was integral during Orkin's acquisition of PCO Services in 1999, helping to oversee marketing and advertising changes and a sales force expansion, all while focusing on customer and employee retention. Under his leadership, Orkin Canada has thrived. The bilingual operation, which serves a country that spans 4,600 miles and four time zones, exhibits remarkable customer retention, growth and profits.
Muldoon and the other Crown Awards winners are profiled in the October issue of PCT magazine.
