On September 10, Paul Hilder, president of Donlen Fleet Management Services (FMS), celebrated his 25th anniversary at Donlen Corporation. His dedication was honored with an all-employee meeting, complete with former colleagues who shared more than two decades of Hilder’s career growth within Donlen. In 1977, Hilder owned and operated a service station close to Donlen headquarters, then in Lincolnwood, Ill. Donlen employees trusted Hilder to work on their cars, leading Donlen founder Don Rappeport to ask Hilder to join the company to become its one-person maintenance program staff. Since then, Hilder has spearheaded the development of the products and services that have made Donlen FMS an industry leader with more than 75,000 vehicles under management
