Crowley Maritime Corp. announce the presentation of the company's highest honor to Micki Harrison, director, human resources, and Miguel Artiga, vice president, logistics, Central America, at a ceremony at Jacksonville, Fla., headquarters.

The exclusive employee recognition program was created in 1985 and only 56 of the company's more than 5,300 employees have received the award symbolized by a limited edition bronze sculpture, which depicts company founder Thomas Crowley ferrying goods to and from ships on San Francisco Bay in the early 1890s. The trophy serves not only as a tribute to the founder of the company, but also to those honorees who have aligned themselves closely with the company's values displaying outstanding performance, dedication, leadership and initiative.

Crowley's Chairman, President and CEO Tom Crowley Jr., the grandson of the company's founder, presented the awards recently before more than 200 employees and senior leaders who had gathered from around the world for the event. Included in the audience were eight past recipients of the coveted award.

“This award is very meaningful for me because of the gratitude and appreciation I have for my father, my grandfather and all the employees who have pulled together to make this such a special company,” said an emotional Crowley. “Our two recipients this year are people who live the culture and values and do everything they can to make the company better.”

In addition to bringing passion and a dedication to teamwork to her job every day, Harrison was recognized for the impact she has had on the training and development of employees throughout the company’s many geographic locations.

Artiga was recognized as a driving force in the development and performance of the company’s team in Central America.
