About Matthew Betz

Betz has over 35 years of experience in the fleet industry, working with major fleets across North America. Most recently, Betz held a fleet management position at DTE Energy in Detroit. Recently retired, Betz was responsible for implementing the DTE Fleet EV strategy and has strongly supported DTE’s keen focus on fleet safety.

Additionally, Betz is on Work Truck's editorial advisory board.

Betz has worked closely for many years with two fleet industry associations, NAFA-the Fleet Management Association, and the American Fleet Leasing Association (AFLA).

In 2008 Betz was awarded NAFA’s Excellence in Education Award, highlighting his involvement in NAFA education as an instructor and frequent presenter at NAFA’s Institute & Expo, as well as at dozens of local and regional NAFA chapter meetings. He served many years on NAFA’s I&E Curriculum Committee, including committee chair roles.

Betz currently serves as president of the AFLA Board of Directors. Last year, he was the conference task force chair, where he led the efforts to organize the 2023 annual conference.

“Matt’s deep industry knowledge, stage presence, and relationships are the perfect complement to take GFC into 2024, grow the conference, and deliver the education that global fleet managers need,” said Chris Brown, conference chair of the Fleet Forward and Fleet Safety Conferences.

About Global Fleet Conference

Celebrating its 11th edition in 2024, GFC is a “must-attend” event for fleet and mobility specialists around the world.

GFC features keynote speakers, educational sessions, and networking events with major global fleet suppliers. This year’s event features a Vehicle Showcase and Ride & Drive.

GFC attendees will also have an opportunity to stay and join the combined Fleet Forward and Fleet Safety Conferences.

Fleet Forward Conference is designed to deliver fleets solutions on electrification, charging infrastructure, connected vehicles, ADAS & autonomous technology, next-generation telematics, and more. 

Fleet Safety Conference brings rich education from experts in fleet safety, with content focused on reducing driver distraction, safety technologies, driver risk profiling, safety training, limiting fleet liability, and tools to enhance overall safety in fleets.

Registration for the three conferences will open soon.
