The judges have deliberated, and we are delighted to announce the list of finalists for this year’s National Pest Awards.
Organised by Pest in conjunction with the British Pest Control Association, the National Pest Technicians Association and BASIS PROMPT, the National Pest Awards are aimed at recognising and rewarding the best in the industry.
The judging panel is headed by Simon Lewis, group managing director of Lewis Business Media, the publisher of Pest magazine; and consists of Ian Andrew, chief executive of the BPCA; Steve Hallam, chief operating officer of the NPTA; Stephen Jacob, chief executive of BASIS; and Simon King, editor of Pest magazine.
Mr Lewis said: “I was delighted to chair the judging panel for the first National Pest Awards. I’m delighted that Lewis Business Media and Pest are able to bring you the National Pest Awards.
“I’d also like to thank the judges who gave up their time to judge the entries. I know it’s nerve-racking to enter, but we treat applicants with respect, so don’t be put off. Start planning your entry and why not have a go next year.”
