ARI’s Ed Pierce Named NAFA Affiliate of the Year

We are delight­ed to con­grat­u­late Ed Pierce, ARI’s vice pres­i­dent of brand­ing and glob­al mar­ket­ing, who has received NAFA’s first-ever Fleet Excel­lence Award (FLEXY) for Affil­i­ate of the Year.

“I am deeply hon­ored to receive the first Affil­i­ate of the Year award as a rep­re­sen­ta­tive of ARI and our par­ent com­pa­ny Hol­man Auto­mo­tive,” said Pierce. “NAFA gives affil­i­ates and mem­bers the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn from each oth­er and col­lab­o­ra­tive­ly devel­op strate­gies that improve both indi­vid­ual busi­ness­es and the fleet indus­try as a whole.”

NAFA’s Affil­i­ate of the Year FLEXY rec­og­nizes Pierce’s ongo­ing com­mit­ment to the asso­ci­a­tion, its part­ners and, most impor­tant, its mem­bers. “Ed’s unwa­ver­ing sup­port has impact­ed NAFA on count­less lev­els,” said NAFA’s Exec­u­tive Direc­tor Phil Rus­so, CAE. “ARI has been one of NAFA’s biggest sup­port­ers, espe­cial­ly over the past five years, with heavy involve­ment in nation­al as well as chap­ter com­mit­tees, prod­uct and sem­i­nar devel­op­ment, and con­fer­ence space and spon­sor­ship, and that is due in no small part to Ed’s ded­i­ca­tion and focus.”

Com­prised of sev­en indi­vid­ual awards, the Fleet Excel­lence Awards shine a spot­light on those who have impact­ed the fleet indus­try in the both cor­po­rate and pub­lic seg­ments through­out Cana­da and the Unit­ed States. Nom­i­na­tions are reviewed by a dis­tin­guished pan­el of indus­try lead­ers includ­ing fleet man­agers, fleet man­age­ment pro­fes­sion­als and mem­bers of the fleet indus­try.

Pierce is cur­rent­ly a mem­ber of NAFA’s Affil­i­ates Com­mit­tee and is involved with sev­er­al oth­er ini­tia­tives. Pre­vi­ous­ly, Pierce served on NAFA’s Edi­to­r­i­al Advi­so­ry Coun­cil, as well as both the Edu­ca­tion Devel­op­ment and Cur­ricu­lum Com­mit­tees.
