The 2015 Wheels Results+ Fleet Performance Summit brought together Wheels clients to showcase fleet management success stories and network with peers to share ideas.

The Summit, which was attended by more than 60 professionals and held on Oct. 20 in Chicago, recognized 15 Wheels clients who achieved notable recent successes in the five Results+ optimal fleet categories. 

“We are pleased with the turn-out and level of engagement,” said Joe McDonald, senior director of Account Management at Wheels Inc. “This event acts as a spring board for idea sharing between all attendees on how to work towards fleet optimization and continuous improvement.”

A client representative from each category winner partnered with his or her Wheels account manager to present the strategies, processes and evaluation methodologies that contributed to strong fleet performance in that area.

Since the first event in 2013, 50 Wheels clients have been recognized for their outstanding achievements in one of five categories. For 2015, the winners are:
