Many of us in the fleet orbit know Mike Pitcher, former CEO of LeasePlan, USA, and one of the most dynamic and charismatic leaders in the industry. You may know him for his early and enduring work in tackling the deadly problem of distracted driving. It’s still his passion — catch his video this week: Conversations Can Change Your Behavior.
