Six fleet professionals have been named to Government Fleet and the American Public Works Association’s Public Fleet Hall of Fame. Inductees are chosen by a combination of industry professionals via an online ballot and Government Fleet staff.
Honorees are recognized industry leaders and pioneers who have significantly contributed to the public fleet profession. To be eligible, they must have at least 20 years of experience in the industry, 10 of which must have been spent working for a public fleet or a private company contracted to manage a public fleet. Ten inductees formed the inaugural group of Hall of Famers in 2014, followed by eight in 2015.
Staff will recognize the recipients of this award, sponsored by the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA), during the Honors Celebration at the Government Fleet Expo & Conference (GFX), which will take place in Nashville June 18-20.
