Due to the ongoing high demand for independent fleet consulting services, fleetcompetence is expanding its international team with the appointment of Philippe Stolbowsky.
During 2018, fleetcompetence has grown significantly, now comprising 55 national and international fleet experts around the globe. In order to keep pace with the growing demand for fleet consulting services, Philippe Stolbowsky will take over in a Partner role within the international team.
For 17 years Stolbowsky held a variety of procurement-related positions within the IT-giant Hewlett-Packard. As Global Fleet Procurement Director, he was in charge of the 30,000 vehicle fleet worldwide. Together with a team of regional buyers reporting into Stolbowsky, he was very successful in continuously reducing fleet spend through the optimization of the entire supply chain management.
In 2010, Stolbowsky joined the international fleet management provider HPI Fleet & Mobility as Chief Procurement Officer, where he was in charge of building up the inhouse procurement organization across 15 countries in Europe. After the takeover of HPI by ARI Fleet Management, Stolbowsky assumed the role of Director EMEA Strategic Accounts and Consulting, heading a team of international fleet consultants and strategic account managers.
