CEI’s Wayne Smolda to Present Top Fleet Executive Award at AFLA Conference

Wayne Smol­da, founder and chief exec­u­tive offi­cer of the CEI Group, Inc. (CEI) will present the win­ner of this year’s Fleet Exec­u­tive of the Year award this week at the 2014 Con­fer­ence of the Auto­mo­tive Fleet & Leas­ing Asso­ci­a­tion (AFLA) in Las Vegas, Neva­da.

Mr. Smol­da will present the award at a spe­cial break­fast meet­ing hon­or­ing the association’s award win­ners on Tues­day, Sep­tem­ber 9. CEI has been co-spon­sor­ing the award with Fleet Finan­cials mag­a­zine since its incep­tion in 2003.

The award rec­og­nizes excep­tion­al lead­er­ship by man­agers who have the title of vice pres­i­dent or high­er. The win­ner is select­ed by pan­el of judges drawn from the fleet indus­try. Cri­te­ria include cost-sav­ing ini­tia­tives, pol­i­cy-set­ting, cre­ation of inno­v­a­tive pro­grams, and cul­ti­va­tion of fleet man­ag­er train­ing and man­age­ment. Last year’s win­ner was Jerome Web­ber, vice pres­i­dent of glob­al fleet oper­a­tions for AT&T.

CEI also announced that it has raised its AFLA spon­sor­ship from Plat­inum to Dia­mond, the organization’s high­est spon­sor lev­el. “For more than 40 years, AFLA has been at the fore­front in help­ing to raise the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of the fleet indus­try,” Mr. Smol­da said. “We’re proud to be a mem­ber and pleased to extend our sup­port for the ben­e­fit of all of those who keep the wheels of busi­ness turn­ing.”

The con­fer­ence is being held Sep­tem­ber 8–10 at the M Resort & Spa Casi­no.
