HOUSTON - Pete Scarafiotti, fleet services director for the City of Mesa, Ariz., won the general election for the President-Elect position on the Rocky Mountain Fleet Management Association (RMFMA) National Board of Directors. The ballots were tabulated and results announced to the general membership at the recent 2009 RMFMA Power Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, according to RMFMA.

Scarafiotti (pictured right) has served the RMFMA in several capacities over the years, most recently as chair of the Arizona Chapter and of the National Web site Committee. He is also a graduate of the Certified Automotive Fleet Manager and the Certified Equipment Manager programs, and was also named 2009 Outstanding Fleet Member of the Year at the conference.

"It is an honor to be elected to the position of President-Elect by my fellow fleet professionals," said Scarafiotti. "I look forward to working diligently to support RMFMA's continuing mission of fleet management development and providing a national network for exchanging fleet information, ideas, experiences, and methods."
