Our company has changed a great deal since 1892, when my grandfather, then 17 years old, bought a Whitehall rowboat to transport people and supplies to and from ships in San Francisco Bay. The principles necessary to transform this company from what it was more than a century ago to what it is at the start of the 21st century – dedication, leadership, imagination, initiative and team spirit – remain unchanged.
It is in honor of these principles, this company’s founder, and above all, extraordinary employees, that we present our company’s highest honor, the Thomas Crowley Award, to deserving employees.
Nominees for the Thomas Crowley Award can be any employee with a minimum of two years continuous service. Nominations may be made, and awards presented, anytime during the year. In some years, we may have multiple award winners and in other years we may have none.
I encourage you all, keeping in mind Crowley’s Core Values of Safety, Integrity and High Performance, to nominate colleagues who truly stand apart.
Popularity is not an award criterion. What is important is a person’s contribution to this company. Contributions come in many forms: increased profitability, process improvements, cost savings, customer relationship-building and customer satisfaction are a few examples.
This program’s success depends on your participation. I encourage you to nominate extraordinary colleagues for this honor.
Tom Crowley Jr.
Chairman & CEO
