He currently serves as an essential member of NPMA’s Public Policy committee.
Alfie Treleven III, another key figure in the industry, has been recognized for his contributions as a founding member of NPMA’s Pest Management Foundation, his 13-year tenure as Chairman of Copesan services, leadership roles in Washington Pest Management Association (WSPMA), and his service on the NPMA Board of Directors and the Pest Management Foundation Board of Trustees in 2010. He is currently serving on the board of PestSure.
“This year, the Pinnacle Award is shared among two incredible industry leaders who happen to be leaders at Sprague. Larry and Alfie have played pivotal roles in shaping our company’s legacy for a combined 90+ years and have made significant contributions to our industry.
