ICFM outlines vision of making fleet management a fully recognised vocation

Speaking at the organisation’s ‘Fleet 2020’ conference today in Oxfordshire, chairman of the ICFM, Paul Hollick said: “We want ICFM qualifications to become the qualifications required to be a fleet decision-maker. These qualifications will be the de facto stamp of approval that you can do the job and we want to make fleet management a fully recognised vocation. Employers will then search out these qualifications when employing a new fleet manager just like they would do for an accountant, an architect or a lawyer.”

Hollick also outlined the ICFM’s current objectives are to:

  • Reach a 1,000-plus membership base from its current level of over 750 members
  • Improve its footprint with other industry bodies – ACFO, FTA, BVRLA
  • Freshen up its training
  • Develop more opportunities for members to stay abreast of new topics and initiatives within fleet and mobility
  • Make the ICFM more accessible to new members and those in support service roles to the industry.  

Paul Hollick explained: “We wish to continue to further improve ties with other industry bodies, we are redesigning the ICFM website and will improve member communication interfaces, we will continue to develop more CPD topics and freshen up our training, work with fleet industry suppliers to help support their education programmes and, importantly, launch a Corporate Membership Programme. And above all, we will continue to improve our reputation within the industry. We must be relevant and continue to raise industry standards.”
