After 24 years in the fleet industry, Joe LaRosa is retiring this April, and FMW is delighted to talk with him about his notable career.
Over the course of his career, he directed global fleet operations for Bristol-Myers Squibb, Merck Sharp and Dohme, and Ascensia Diabetes Care, and did work as a consultant with Mercury Associates.
A long-term member and officer with the NAFA Fleet Management Association, in 2017 he was awarded Honorary Lifetime Membership, one of the highest honors NAFA can bestow on an individual. In 2008, he was named Fleet Manager of the Year by the Automotive Fleet Leasing Association (AFLA).
Joe says, “I believe the greatest achievement I made in fleet management was the friendships and comradery that I made with hundreds if not thousands of persons in this industry over the past 25 years.”
