The Car and Truck Fleet and Leasing Management Magazine

Survant, George

Charter Communications Senior Director of Fleet George Survant was named the AF Professional Fleet Manager of the Year for 2016.

At the time of his award, Survant was responsible for fleet strategy at Charter Communications in Charlotte, N.C. He became part of Charter Communications when the company purchased Time Warner Communications in early 2016. He joined Time Warner four years before, and has been in the fleet industry for 40 years.

After joining Charter Communications through its purchase of Time Warner Cable and Charter’s additional purchase of Florida’s Bright House Networks, Survant was thrust Survant into the role of fleet integrator.

At the time of the award, Survant and his counterparts with the legacy fleets at Charter and Bright House were in the process of the combining the fleets into a single 36,700-vehicle operating unit comprised of 20,000 cargo vans, 7,400 pickup trucks, 5,000 aerial trucks, 2,000 SUVs, 350 sedans, 200 heavy-duty trucks, and 90 passenger vans.

One of the key aspects of merging of the fleets is combining their accounting and other administrative systems and processes. On the operational side, the integration is likely to be relatively seamless since all three fleets used ARI as their fleet management company and WEX as their fuel card provider.

Size Matters

By Sherb Brown
There is little doubt that the folks out there with 5,000-10,000 vehicles have a good handle on how much they should be paying; for everything from bucket trucks to sedan floor mats. But some of our recent survey data shows that vast hordes of the fleet market are paying close to retail rates for a lot of products and services.
