Letter from the Editor — Shine That Light on You!

The begin­ning of a new year often brings us face to face with improve­ments we want to make in our career. We are for­tu­nate in the fleet com­mu­ni­ty to be able to turn to orga­ni­za­tions such as NAFA to help us hone our skills, includ­ing giv­ing us some coach­ing on how to present our val­ue to senior man­age­ment. NAFA’s Don­ald Dun­phy has penned a two-part series enti­tled, “How to Present to Upper Man­age­ment;” part one appeared in the November/December issue of Fleet Solu­tions. NAFA gra­cious­ly released it to wider pub­li­ca­tion and you’ll find it this week in ‘My Bril­liant Career.’

Joe LaRosa directs a fleet of some 28,000 vehi­cles in 106 coun­tries for Mer­ck, a for­mi­da­ble job we would say. But so typ­i­cal of pro­fes­sion­als in our indus­try, Joe finds the time to give back. A 19-year mem­ber of the Philadel­phia Chap­ter of NAFA, Joe also serves as NAFA’s Inter­na­tion­al Vice Pres­i­dent and was a speak­er at the much-laud­ed Inter­na­tion­al Fleet Acad­e­my last fall.  Don’t miss our inter­view with Joe in ‘The Fleet Spot’ this week.

Reminder: Dead­line for sub­mis­sions for the 2014 Fleet Excel­lence Awards (FLEXY) is Wednes­day, Jan­u­ary 15th!  Open to every­one in fleet man­age­ment, the FLEXYs are award­ed in the fields of sus­tain­abil­i­ty, safe­ty, and over­all fleet man­age­ment achieve­ment.

Dri­ve Safe­ty,
Jan­ice Sut­ton
