When reviewing your calendar, if you're a fleet manager with global and/or regional responsibilities, you should circle Sept. 30-Oct. 2 for the inaugural Global Fleet Management Conference. This event will be held in Phoenix, Ariz., and post-conference workshops will be held on Oct. 2. The conference is being produced by Bobit Business Media, publisher of Automotive Fleet, and Nexus Communication, publisher of Fleet Europe magazine.
A premiere group of U.S.- and European-based of global fleet managers are advising with the development of the agenda content for the conference. Kevin Fisher, vice president of strategic fleet operations and Supply Chain Management for ARAMARK, and Dean Yerem, purchasing manager for Nestle Business Services, N.A., recently became the newest members of the U.S. Global Fleet Advisory Board. With the addition of Fisher and Yerem, the U.S. advisory board has increased to 16 total members. The European Global Fleet Advisory Board has 14 members.
