TREVOSE, PA – The CEI Group, Inc. (CEI), a provider of fleet accident and risk management services, announced it appointed Ryan Dicken to the position of Midwest regional sales manager.
Dicken comes to CEI from Union Leasing, where he also held the position of Midwest regional sales manager, according to CEI. His experience also includes four years at Donlen Corporation, where he was vice president of business development, and four years at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
“Ryan’s years of experience in the automotive leasing and rental businesses gives him keen insight into the needs that fleets have for efficient accident management and effective risk management and driver safety programs,” said Vincent Brigidi, CEI’s president and chief operating officer.

The annual accident rate for commercial fleets is around 20%. Even with vehicle safety technology proliferating, traffic deaths are on the rise after years of decline. The culprit for the increase in fatalities is distracted driving.
