Do you know a fleet professional who is making a difference in the industry and has been in the fleet industry for less than 10 years? Now is the time to nominate a visionary for the eighth annual Fleet Visionary Awards.

Sponsored exclusively by Merchants Fleet, the Fleet Visionary Award recognizes new voices in fleet management. The Fleet Visionary Award is open to any fleet professional with 10 years or fewer in the industry with a commercial fleet of 50 vehicles or more.

A fleet visionary is someone who has brought a new perspective to running a commercial fleet resulting in a fleet that is more operationally efficient, cost-effective, safer, or any combination of these by introducing new methods, efficiencies, and/or technologies.

The visionary isn't just someone with a good idea. They are part salesman, part number cruncher, part coach, part quarterback — able to both inspire and get things done. A fleet visionary is passionate and practical.

To nominate someone (self-nominations are permitted), clearly state why the nominee is a visionary, bringing a new voice and perspective to fleet challenges in 250 words or fewer. Fill out the form here.

Nominations must be submitted by Friday, June 17, 2022. Click here to fill out the brief form!

Last year’s Fleet Visionary of the Year was Kate Tooley, who worked for Terminix as Director of Fleet Strategy and Operations (she now works at Asplundh). She revamped the cycle strategy and found several cost-saving, efficiency-increasing measures to keep the fleet running through a tough pandemic year.

Don’t hesitate - nominate a Fleet Visionary today! We will honor the top 10 Visionaries, including the Visionary of the Year, at the 2022 AFLA Corporate Fleet Conference, which will be held Oct. 10-13, 2022, at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa in Tucson, Arizona.
