Crowley Maritime Corp. says that Jose “Pache” Ayala, vice president, Puerto Rico services, and Shiju Zacharia, director, technology, were presented with 2013 Thomas Crowley awards, the company's highest honor, at a ceremony yesterday at the company’s Jacksonville, Fla., headquarters.

Ayala was selected for the award because of his continued commitment, hard work, embrace of change and focus on the future success of the company. He was also credited for always working with a high degree of integrity, mutual trust and respect among employees, customers and service providers.

Zacharia was honored with the award for his demonstrated expertise in application development and adeptness at analyzing requirements, identifying improvement opportunities and crafting solutions that enhance competitiveness and increase revenue.

The exclusive employee recognition program was created in 1985 and only 58 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 200 employees and senior leaders who had gathered from around the world for the event. Included in the audience were nine past recipients of the coveted award.
