Capt. Kenneth Graybill and Sal Menoyo, general manager of Crowley’s Port Everglades terminal, presented with Company’s Thomas Crowley Award.

Kenneth Graybill, captain of Crowley Maritime Corporatio n’s articulated tug-barge (ATB) Legend/750-2, and Sal Menoyo, general manager of Crowley’s Port Everglades terminal, were each presented with 2011 Thomas Crowley Awards, the company's highest honor, at an offsite ceremony held yesterday in Jacksonville. The ceremony took on additional significance because Graybill is the first person in company history to receive the trophy as a mariner.

The exclusive employee recognition program was created in 1985 and only 54 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 before more than 110 employees and senior leaders who had gathered from around the world for an important company safety summit.
