“I am excited to be working in a dynamic, evolving industry and I am looking forward to working with members and committees to grow the fleet profession’s leading event, NAFA’s Institute & Expo,” Mercardo said. “My plan for accomplishments is to bring innovative event design and a renewed excitement to the show. Working with our dedicated team of staff, volunteers, and products & service providers, NAFA will create a high-impact attendee experience that allows the Association’s members grow in their careers and knowledge, while enjoying networking with a community of their peers.”
