Nominate someone for AMGUARD award


April 11, 2022



AMGUARD is now accepting nominations for pest management professionals (PMPs) to be recognized as an American Innovator.

The American Innovators program was created to celebrate exceptional PMPs. Any pest management professional is eligible, including technical directors, owners, office managers, branch managers, technicians and sales representatives.

American Innovators is an award granted to those who drive their industry forward with ingenuity — whether by concepting a new technology, navigating a business challenge or standing at the frontline of the communities, courses and homes they serve.

AMGUARD provided several reasons to nominate someone as an American Innovator:

  1. Pest control professionals are often unsung heroes. Here’s your chance to nominate those who go “above and beyond” to let them know they’re appreciated.
  2. It’s a great opportunity to celebrate excellence in your own local or professional community.
  3. When we share and celebrate each other’s successes, we inspire new breakthroughs.
  4. Winners will receive an extra-large, wooden Legacy Series American “Flag of Valor” handcrafted by American veterans.
  5. Nominating is fast and easy. Visit the website for more information.

Nominations are now open to tell AMGUARD a little about your nominee before the deadline of June 30, 2022.

A selection committee composed of industry leaders, influencers and peers will review nominations and select winners to be announced in early 2023.

Here are the members of the committee:

  • Shayne Wetherall, CEO of AMGUARD
  • Cindy Code, executive director of Project EverGreen
  • Andrew Architect, CEO at the National Pest Management Association
  • Dr. Paul Koch, associate professor in the department of plant pathology at the University of Wisconsin – Madison
  • Dr. Claudia Riegel, director of the City of New Orleans mosquito, termite and rodent control board
