We created this award last year to reward the merit of individual within the dealership and the name really says it all.

Last year I made a special mention of own Krone Ambassador Rodney Benson who was our territory manager for the SW who could not be with us because of his battle with cancer. Very sadly Rodney lost his battle in February this year and passed away. Tragically, Darren Metcalf who was Rodneys Product support colleuage was also diagnosed with Cancer the year and Darren lost his battle just last month. Both Rodney and Darren were real Krone Ambassadors - they lived for the work and will be sadly missed. So we would like to award the Krone Ambassador award in memory of Rodney and Darren. It was a difficult award to judge as there are many people out there who are 110% committed to the Krone brand and go above and beyond to sell or support it over and above many others. However there are some individuals who particularly stood out over the last year.

'Tim Adock is a individual who truly works in partnership with Krone, and works in a very flexible but driven manner. He deals incredibly well with any setbacks, and is back up and looking for Plan B. Has a very infectious “can do” attitude, which cascades and manifests itself within his team. He is not frightened of having a go and will commit to repairs, even on machines he has supplied. Always willing to help out at any time.'
