Bruce Halliday, fleet manager, City of Rochester Hills,Mich., received the Legendary Lifetime Achievement Award at the Government Fleet Virtual Honors Celebration on June 16.
Halliday was chosen by the industry among all the Public Fleet Hall of Fame inductees. The award is sponsored by Sourcewell, and Andy Campbell, contract administration supervisor, announced this year's winner.
During his acceptance speech, Halliday thanked his wife for "putting up with" his dediction to and love of his profession...even during vacations.
"Special thanks also goes out to the 'Southeast Michigan fleet dinosaurs,' all of whom are retired now," Halliday said. "We grew our careers together, attended training events together, helped each other along the way, and became great friends."
Halliday has built, maintained, and advanced the City or Rochester Hills’ fleet throughout his 38 years there. He led a shared services initiative with neighboring communities, partnered on numerous cooperative purchasing initiatives, and has been a part of developing many of the best management practices utilized in the fleet services industry today. He is most proud of assembling a team of highly motivated and dedicated professionals and the relationships he has cultivated throughout his career.
