NAFA Fleet Management has announced the winners of its 2014 Fleet Excellence Awards. The announcement was made during the organizations recent annual conference at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, MN.

NAFA’s Fleet Excellence Awards, or the FLEXYs for short, open to all fleet professionals, regardless of whether or not they were members of NAFA. Industry leaders, acting as judges in the selection process for finalists and winners, never saw the names of nominees or the organizations they work for. Voting was 100 percent blind; based solely upon the actions and ideas listed by the nominees on their submission forms. This allowed for unbiased selection based strictly on the quality of nominee accomplishments.

“You are representatives of the best of the fleet profession,” NAFA CEO Phillip E. Russo, CAE, told the winners. “NAFA thanks you for your commitment, dedication, and desire to move fleet and business forward.”
