Gage Wagoner, Philips' senior manager North American fleet management, was named Professional Fleet Manager of the Year for 2014.

Wagoner accepted a position at Philips in 2001 as a fleet administrator after completing a master's degree in environmental science. He took the job out of "desperation" because there were no jobs in his field in Seattle.
