Government Fleet has announced three finalists for the 2015 Public Sector Fleet Manager of the Year award. Judges chose the finalists from a group of 11 qualified nominees as scoring the highest in 10 categories: business plan, technology implementation, productivity, policies, preventive maintenance program, utilization management, replacement program, customer service, fuel management, and safety.

The judging panel is made up of working public sector fleet managers from a variety of fleets.

The finalists are:

  • Michael Brennan, CEM, fleet services division manager, Manatee County, Fla.
  • Bill Griffiths, division chief, Fleet Management Services, Montgomery County, Md.
  • Kelly Reagan, fleet administrator, City of Columbus, Ohio

Brennan has remained focused in 2014 on the construction of a new state-of-the-art maintenance facility, completion of a fully automated bulk oil monitoring system, expanding deployment of the wireless fuel management system by 150 units, and replacing an aged security system at the central facility. 

Using data, Griffiths led the development and execution of the county’s fleet replacement program, overcoming a six-year, 1,000+ vehicle replacement backlog.

Challenged to develop a fleet goal that would benefit the City of Columbus by reducing carbon emissions while saving money, Reagan developed the “Million Gallon Challenge.” This metric is gradually removing a million gallons of petroleum fuel from the city’s budget while realizing $2 million a year in fuel savings.

Industry professionals nominate fleet managers for this award, and candidates are asked to fill out a questionnaire for judging purposes. The 11 qualified nominees for this year are:

  • Michael Brennan, CEM, fleet services division manager, Manatee County, Fla.
  • Wayne Corum, interim director of property management, City of Fort Worth
  • Daryl Greenlee, fleet manager, City of Orlando
  • Bill Griffiths, division chief, Fleet Management Services, Montgomery County, Md.
  • Greg Hansen, fleet administrator, Washington State Department of Transportation
  • Mary Joyce Ivers, CPFP, PWLF, fleet and facilities manager, City of Ventura, Calif.
  • Steve Kibler, ACFM, fleet manager, City of Loveland, Colo.
  • Robert Martinez, deputy commissioner, New York City Police Department
  • Kelly Reagan, fleet administrator, City of Columbus, Ohio
  • Peter Scarafiotti, CAFM, CEM, CPFP, director & automotive engineer, City of Mesa, Ariz.
  • Annette Spitsbergen, fleet manager, Wyoming State Motor Pool

The award is sponsored by General Motors. The winner will be announced at The Honors Ceremony at GFX, which takes place June 8-11 in Denver.
