Association of Fleet Professionals adds to committee expertise with new members
The Association of Fleet Professionals has reinforced its recently founded committees with seven new appointments as it continues its work to become a single, unified voice for the fleet sector.
Natasha Patel of Baringa and Aaron Powell of Speedy have been added to the Future Roads Committee while Steve Roper of Prudential, Paul Tate, formerly of Siemens, and Jacob Telemacque of King Sec are now part of the Risk, Compliance and Health Committee.
Also, Stewart Taylor of Police Scotland has joined the LCV Committee and Craig Login of Vodafone has become a member of the EV, Low Carbon and Alternative Fuels Committee.
The AFP’s committee structure was announced in June following the formation of the organisation in March from the merging of the Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO) and the Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM).
Each committee is designed as an ‘incubator’ for ideas that will ultimately affect not just fleet strategies but policy and action across government, the HMRC and the DVLA – the intention is for such ideas and plans to be heard at the highest levels of decision-making, including across Whitehall.Chair Paul Hollick said: “The AFP’s committees play a crucial role in discussing current issues facing fleets and formulating advice and strategy, so having high-quality professionals involved is essential.
“We’d like to welcome these latest seven recruits. They all bring an impressive degree of expertise to our organisation and, we are sure, will make very useful contributions to our discussions over the coming months and years.”
