Fleet careers: CV

FRAN Martin, fleet controller, Fibernet

How many vehicles are you responsible for and how long have you been in fleet?

I have 90 cars on the fleet. I have worked in my current job for just over seven years. In my previous job I was responsible for a fleet of 120 cars.

How did you get into the business?

I was working as an accountancy assistant when the lease car administrator left. Before I had the chance to apply, I was asked how I felt about taking on the cars.

Can you give advice to someone joining the industry?

Keep ahead of the game. In this time of change and stricter legislation it is important to know what you need to be doing. Be prepared for anything as no two days are the same. You also need a sense of humour.

How is the industry changing?

There is more legislation coming into play, telematics are playing a bigger role, and the options you can get on cars now were virtually unheard of 10 years ago.

What gadget/piece of technology can you not do without?

My mobile phone.
