NPMA award for Fryatt

During NPMA's PestWorld International Reception, Univar Director Latin America Benjamin Gomez recognised three industry leaders.

The first award, the inaugural Global Ambassador Award was presented to Rob Fryatt, director of Xenex Associates and former director of the Confederation of European Pest Management Associations (CEPA). Cited as "a person who was a global ambassador for the pest management industry before we even realised that we were a global industry," Rob has made a career of promoting and enhancing the professionalism of the industry, culminating in his chairmanship of the CEPA project to launch a European standard for pest management companies.

Rob Fryatt said; "There can be no greater recognition within any industry than that of your colleagues. It does not matter who you work for, it is the people that make an industry and over many years I have been fortunate to work, and continue to work, with so many of you from all around the world." Rob added "We work in a great industry and an industry that helps protect the health and hygiene of our fellow citizens, of this we can all be very proud."

Also recognised were Alberto Ponjoan as a champion for uniting the pest management industry in his native Spain, and Norman Cooper who received the Global Ambassador Lifetime Achievement Award.
