PRINCETON, NJ - Twenty-one fleet managers from some of the largest corporations in the world comprise NAFA's new Corporate Fleet Advisory Council. Utilizing the knowledge, experience, and influential ideas of these corporate leaders, the Council will advise on new and existing NAFA products, comment on future direction, and point out new opportunities for the Association.
NAFA Executive Director Phillip Russo, CAE, who will be directing the Council, said he wants "every corporate fleet manager - member and potential member - to understand the value NAFA offers and the fact that NAFA is and will continue to be an unquestionable asset for them."
According to Russo, the inspiration behind the Council was simple. "There was a perception that NAFA was ignoring corporate fleet managers and putting all of its resources toward the government fleet sector. That was not, and is not, true, but as the saying goes, 'perception is reality.' "
