NAFA acknowledged outstanding industry members last evening at the Association’s annual Institute and Expo (I&E) FLEXY Awards Ceremony. The Fleet Excellence Awards (FLEXYs), an annual award program dedicated to recognizing the best and brightest in fleet management, is held annually at NAFA’s I&E event.
“The Fleet Excellence Awards were designed to shine a spotlight on those who have impacted fleet management in both the corporate and public fleet segments during the previous year,” said NAFA’s Chief Executive Officer, Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “We look forward to honoring all of the finalists each year and are pleased with the continued success and appreciation of the program.”
Comprising of seven individual awards, the FLEXYs recognize those who have impacted fleet in both the corporate and public fleet segments during 2014. These awards are reviewed by a prestigious industry panel consisting of fleet managers, fleet management company professionals and members of the fleet industry to determine three finalists for each category. Three finalists are chosen for each of the seven categories.
