This roundtable discussion will be facilitated by some of the best fleet minds in the industry. We only learn from the best. Virginia had nine of The 100 Best & Honorable Mention Fleets for 2015.

Speakers will include:

Facundo Tassara, Norfolk Fleet Manager, took them to #66 this year after leading Ormond Beach Florida to the top 10 in 2014. He is the youngest fleet manager managing over 2500 vehicles in the country. Facundo will discuss the next generation of fleet professionals; how to attract them, how to keep them.
One idea saved Norfolk over $1 million dollars in fuel this year. Learn how you can apply the same ideas in your operation — the next day — along with other emerging technologies Norfolk uses daily.

Thomas Westergaard, Division Chief for Prince William County, is only the second net-zero-energy facility in the country. This is an idea he got from one of The 100 Best programs in Orlando. Tom will discuss how they did it with public-private partnerships along with their best practices. This is the 8th year in a row PWC has been in The 100 Best Fleets.

John McCorkhill, CAFM; Fleet Director of the City of Lynchburg, is revealing his lessons learned after fighting privization in Indianapolis and taking Lynchburg to the #41 ranking in 2015. John is retiring this year; this a rare chance to hear him discuss if-he-only-knew-then-what-he-knows-now farewell to fleet. His ideas could shorten your learning curve by 5 years. He is a former Government Fleet Manager of the Year. This is a once-only presentation you can’t afford to miss from one of the true industry expert leaders.

Michael Biggs, Fleet Operations Manager, City of Richmond has engineered a complete fleet turnaround for the fleet department. He will discuss the ideas he used for this amazing “turnaround’ and how every public agency can achieve a sense of urgency and receive buy-in from top to bottom for changes that need to be made.. now.

Alleyn Harned with Virginia Clean Cities will discuss funding in 2015 and additional state program activity. This includes an introduction to new alternative fuel vehicle incentives for some public fleets.Grants along with cutting edge technologies and efficiencies can have tremendous impacts on your operation. These emerging technology partners will be present for a mini-Expo too. All of this information at one time in one place.

We can also discuss any other topics and challenges you would like to raise such as:
Managing big data for the best decisions
How to motivate public employees without using money (a case study presented at Harvard John F Kennedy School of Government by a Fleet manager), A survey of 1 million employees on what motivates them to be more productive. (San Jose applied the results immediately to help lead them into the top 100 Fleets)
Other current tools, techniques and strategies from the best-of-the-best fleet minds in the DMV metro area.
Every fleet organization attending will receive a FREE 200-page fleet audit. This self-audit saved $300,000 in 3 months for its fleet manager author in Miami. It also helped prevent privatization of the Atlanta fleet department. There is no other instrument like it in the industry, consultants place a value of $50,000 on it…if they even had one.
