Government Fleet Announces New Awards Programs, Ends Relationship with 100 Best Fleets

October 21, 2013

Government Fleet magazine is launching a series of new government fleet awards for 2014. The magazine is choosing to end its relationship with the 100 Best Fleets award program.

“After careful consideration, we came to the conclusion that we could no longer be associated with this program for a variety of reasons. Our goal will always be to bring awareness to fleets and fleet managers that are leading the industry. Our new awards programs will allow us to accomplish this more effectively.” said Eric Bearly, Government Fleet’s publisher.

Designed for public fleet operations, the three new awards will recognize fleet operations as well as individual fleet managers who have contributed significantly to the industry.

The Leading Fleets award recognizes operations that are performing well in fleet innovation and leadership. There will be multiple winners in a variety of categories. A panel consisting of respected working fleet managers will judge the award.

The Public Fleet Hall of Fame will recognize public-sector fleet industry leaders and pioneers who have contributed significantly to the government fleet industry, similar to Automotive Fleet’s Fleet Hall of Fame. Inductees are selected by their peers via an online ballot.

Finally, the Legendary Lifetime Achievement Award will annually honor one Public Fleet Hall of Fame inductee who gets the most votes.

The recipients of these new awards, as well as the Public Sector Fleet Manager of the Year award, will be announced at the industry’s annual event, produced by Government Fleet magazine, the Government Fleet Expo & Conference (GFX). The 2014 GFX will take place in San Diego June 2-4, 2014.

“These awards are unique to the industry, and we look forward to learning about the achievements of outstanding fleet organizations and individuals across the U.S. and in Canada,” Bearly said.

Additional details about the awards will be available soon.

    Thank you for taking the step to a recognition program for fleet maintenance and management programs. We are a smaller program than most nationally recognized contractor operations, but we work hard at being the best we can be for our customers. As a contractor, there are not many venues to showcase our impact on the industry, so I am hopeful that you will take into consideration the impact and contributions of contractor run programs.
