NAFA's 2016 FLEXY Awards receive record number of nominations

The Fleet Excellence Awards (or FLEXY for short) are intended to spotlight those who have impacted fleet management in both the corporate and public fleet segments during the previous year and are open to all fleet professionals throughout the United States and Canada, regardless of whether or not they were members of NAFA Fleet Management Association.

In total, 133 individual nominations have been made for the 2016 FLEXYs. Three finalists will be chosen for each of the seven categories and will be announced at the end of February. Winners will then be revealed during the Fourth Annual Fleet Excellence Awards Gala on Tuesday 19 April at the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas during NAFA's annual Institute & Expo conference.

“We were astounded by both the number and the quality of submissions sent to us,” said NAFA's chief executive officer Phillip E. Russo. “With more than 133 individual entries for 2016, these nominations indicate that fleet professionals are succeeding with creative ways to provide cost-savings, increase safety, and foster sustainability in their organizations' fleets.

“We're excited to present the Fleet Excellence Awards, and are gratified by the positive reaction and mass-acceptance the FLEXYs have received,” he added. “The FLEXYs are where the best of the best are recognised for their work. NAFA is proud to host such a night during our 2016 Institute & Expo. In addition to the awards presentation, the night will be a tremendous networking opportunity for fleet professionals to meet and share ideas with the elite in the industry!”
