Ron Mawaka Sr., the founder of Fleet Response, began his fleet career with the foundation of Rental Concepts, Inc. in February 1986. The company provided temporary cars, trucks, and specialty vehicles to fleets nationwide. It eventually evolved into Fleet Response — a fully customized accident management, maintenance management, claims adjustment, salvage, subrogation, and safety service provider. Mawaka’s sons, Scott and Ron Jr., carry on his work at Fleet Response. He was inducted into the Automotive Fleet Hall of Fame in 2017.
