Tony Massey, President of Massey Services, is pleased to announce that Adam Jones, Vice President of Quality Assurance for Massey Services, has been awarded the 2016 PCT Crown Leadership Award presented by Pest Control Technology (PCT) and Syngenta. Jones is the fifth Massey Services team member to receive this prestigious award.
Now in its 28th year, the Crown Leadership Award recognizes individuals who have contributed to the development of the pest management industry and have established strong relationships with fellow business leaders, civic groups and customers in their local communities.

Jones, a 34-year veteran of the business, joined Massey Services in 1991 and played a crucial role in the company’s transition from pest control to pest prevention in the early ’90s and in researching, developing and launching the irrigation services program that has made Massey Services the largest irrigation services provider in Florida. Jones has also served for four years on the Florida Pest Management Association’s (FPMA) Executive Committee and was inducted as President in January 2016.
