At the recent Pennsylvania Pest Management Association (PPMA) Annual Board Dinner, in Harrisburg, Pa., longtime PMP columnist Harvey Goldglantz was presented with the second annual Pioneer Award.

The Pioneer Award recognizes those individuals who have unselfishly served the PPMA and the pest management industry over a period of at least 10 years. It is a lifetime/career achievement award, and may be awarded to no more than three individuals in any one year. Along with a commemorative plaque, the award also confers Honorary Member status on its recipients. It’s dedicated to those who have served as pioneers in the field of pest control in Pennsylvania and have forged the way for continued growth today.

Goldglantz has been in the industry for 53 years. Upon graduation from Temple University, he incorporated Philadelphia Exterminating Co. After more than 30 years working at his pest control business, he sold it and made industry consulting his exclusive vocation.

Goldglantz is president of Pest Control Marketing Co., a business and marketing consulting firm to the pest management industry. He is a regularly featured business columnist for Pest Management Professional Magazine and served on its editorial advisory board. He is also a frequent guest columnist for many state newsletters. Goldglantz has been a guest for the National Pest Management Association, The Purdue Conference and just about every state association in the country. Goldglantz’s book, Marketing Matters…The Ultimate Reference Guide to Making the Most of Your Marketing Money, published in 2008, is still being advertised and sold.

Goldglantz served as president of the PPMA and as governor of the Eastern Division. He was editor/publisher of the state newsletter, “The Inspector,” for more than 15 years. He served on and chaired several committees at both the State and Eastern Division levels. Goldglantz is a past recipient of the PPMA’s Stanley G. Green Man of the Year Award for his service to the association. He served three terms on the Board of Directors of the National Pest Management Association, and on numerous NPMA committees. Goldglantz was also an NPMA media specialist and chairman of the marketing committee for Pi Chi Omega, the national fraternity of the pest management industry.

“It is an honor to recognize Harvey with this award,” says Keith Hamilton, PPMA president. “His dedication to his business is unparalleled to his dedication to our industry and association. He is a true example of a pioneer.”
The PPMA is dedicated to leading the structural pest management industry in the Commonwealth by providing superior education opportunities for the industry, a united voice for the industry in the Commonwealth, and maintaining the trust of its members, as well as the citizens and government of the Commonwealth, while sustaining its tradition of environmental stewardship.
