The winners of the 2017 Pest Manager of the Year Awards have been announced, with a Sunshine Coast operator taking out the top gong.

The winners of this year’s Pest Manager of Year Awards were announced by AEPMA at the Rapid Solutions Conference gala dinner earlier this month.

The Pest Manager of the Year Awards serve to highlight the professionalism of the pest management industry to the public and other stakeholders. The awards give the industry greater exposure to the public and aim to encourage pest managers to invest in their learning and development, which in turn increases the professionalism of the industry.

BASF was once again the proud sponsor of the event, showing the company’s significant commitment and investment in supporting the industry as it has done for many years.

“The Pest Manager of the Year Award has grown since its inception and now represents all facets of the industry,” said Stewart Paterson, national commercial manager at BASF. “BASF is proud to be a part of Pest Manager of the Year and will continue to support and invest in the industry.”
