...
I have known Larry Witzel for 25 years. He started to attend LMAC meetings at that time when he was a salesman at OLEX in Waterloo working under Jim Wideman at the market. Over the years he has risen through the ranks to become the owner of the business. During that time he has built a reputation as an honest businessman with impeccable business ethics. He has earned the respect of his producers, the buyers on his market, his employees, industry, and government agencies at both the Provincial and Federal levels.
Larry has met and survived the challenges of operating a livestock market in an area where he faces scrutiny from the general public and government at every turn. He has met the issues of animal welfare and humane handling of livestock head on in the real working environment. His attention to providing top quality service to his customer base is second to none. His hands on approach to managing his business, has been one of the keys to his success.
Larry's ability to see the entire picture and view issues with an open mind has made him a critical member on a number of industry committees. His common sense approach to discussion and negotiation has earned him the respect of both industry and government colleagues. This respect allows Larry Witzel to be heard; people listen when Larry talks. This makes him a valuable resource as a representative of LMAC, OLAMA or OLEX. Committee members often to refer to Larry as the "voice of reason."
Larry has spent countless days away from his family and business, representing both LMAC and OLAMA at meetings or on committees. Larry Witzel is the face of the auction market business in Ontario. His dedication to promoting the livestock marketing business and price discovery is unmatched.
When I need an LMAC representative to help me with an issue, Larry Witzel is the first person I call, and he will always make the time to help.
In my opinion, this award was developed to recognize people like Larry Witzel and I am proud to have served with him over these many years.
