The Government Fleet Management Alliance (GFMA) recognized four municipal fleets at the Government Fleet Expo and Conference in San Diego for their completion of the Certified Fleet Management Operation (CFMO) program.

Honorees included the cities of Anaheim, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; and Mesa, Ariz. The awards were presented June 4.

Jim Wright, president and CEO of Fleet Counselor Services and associate director of the GFMA, presented the awards. The certification benchmarks fleet practices against private-sector companies with which the public-sector group competes most directly. The certification testing process addresses 20 categories and eight foundation categories to ensure fleet management success and aims to make a fleet operation cost-effective, efficient, competitive, and well-managed.

Ron Lindsey, fleet superintendent, and Julie Lyons accepted the award for the City of Anaheim fleet. John Hunt, CPFP, fleet manager, accepted the award for the City of Portland. Pete Scarafiotti, MEng, CAFM, CEM, CPFP, director and automotive engineer, accepted the award for recertification for the City of Mesa. CFMOs need to recertify every two years, and this is Mesa’s first recertification.
