Mark G. Huntley of FH Consulting won the Crawford Reid Memorial Award. Under Huntley’s leadership of T-Systems Europe SA, and later as president, CEO and chairman of the board of T-Systems International, Inc., the company significantly grew the international drip irrigation market.
Huntley saw huge potential for the global irrigation market, and during his tenure was able to introduce new technologies to this market by retooling equipment for new product lines and restructuring material procurement to better meet changing global requirements. During Huntley’s time with T-Systems Europe SA, their business doubled in size. Later, with TSI, the entire global business grew by 70 percent, and the company was poised for the eventual merger with John Deere Water.
Huntley was elected to the Irrigation Association board of directors in 2004, and served as president from 2010-11.
