While the idea for the ICFM was founded on the basis of an article in Fleet News, suggesting that there needed to be recognised qualifications for those working in car fleet management, the idea was turned into reality by Mr Moxon and Alan Myers of McKenzie Myers. Between them, they 'rounded up' eight other fleet managers and formed the ICFM in 1992. Mr Moxon was appointed as the first director and secretary.
ICFM chairman Roddy Graham said: ‘It is fair to say that without his vision and, in the first instance, the financial backing of his company, the ICFM would not exist today.
‘During his seven-year term, Peter was a wonderful ambassador for the ICFM and was held in high esteem by all who served with him.’
Mr Moxon is survived by his wife Louise, son David and daughter Carol.
A thanksgiving service takes place this morning at Christchurch, Sheffield, followed by a cremation service at Hutcliffe Wood Crematorium, Sheffield, at 11.
