Michael Dana, senior fleet manager EMEIA at FedEx, has been named the International Fleet Manager of the Year 2014. Dana was awarded the title at the annual Fleet Europe Awards. This year's ceremony, attended by over 600 international car fleet professionals from Europe and beyond, was held Wednesday November 19 at the Grand Elysée Hotel in Hamburg.
The award is presented every year to the person who has most successfully developed an international fleet management strategy and implemented an efficient international car policy, leading to an optimized cost structure, and taking into account local differences and current fleet trends, including sustainability, safety and mobility management.
The Award was presented to Dana by Hans-Georg Lutz, senior manager International Corporate Sales at Daimler, and Michael Pflüger, senior manager International Key Account Management at Mercedes-Benz Vans. Dana impressed the jury by his success in transforming a complex vehicle fleet in a complex geographical framework into a cost-effective operation, both respecting company targets and achieving high employee satisfaction, all without losing sight of safe-driving projects, effective and relevant KPIs, a top-notch health and safety policy, and an enviable CO2 reduction scheme, according to award organizers.
