Theresa Belding is Senior Manager at Fleet Services for Pharmaceuticals, Inc. With a current staff of three, she supervises 2,900 vehicles and has been in the fleet business for 16 years.
Belding’s team is responsible for fleet administration and safety. Over a 10-year span, she has turned a 250-vehicle closed-end leased, fully-insured fleet into a 2,900-vehicle, open-end leased, self-insured fleet. Cost reductions in fleet expenses have continued since a 2007 RFP consolidated the fleet with one fleet management company. MY-2008 offerings included more four-cylinder vehicles due to a focus on fuel consumption. Despite year-over-year mileage increases, her safety group continues to see accident reductions per million miles. Belding’s team continues efforts to provide the most fuel-efficient vehicles to meet business needs, increase driver safety, and ensure fleet uses industry best practices.
Belding was a nominee for AF's Fleet Manager of the Year Award in 2009, which was won by Christy Coyte.
Belding was named AF Professional Fleet Manager of the Year in 2011.
