Careers: Fleet CV

Lynn Gard, fleet manager, Monteray South East and Monteray North

  • Describe your fleet?

    I am currently responsible for just over 300 vehicles, the majority of which are light commercial vans, with about 50 company cars

  • What funding method do you use?

    All of our vehicles are leased through Carillion Fleet Management, part of our parent company group.

  • What do you enjoy about your job?

    The diversity and challenge. I never know what I will have to deal with on a daily basis and it can still surprise me.

  • And what do you enjoy least?

    Vehicle taxation problems and P11Ds.

  • Why did you join the fleet industry?

    I was working as PA to the managing director of Monteray South East and someone was needed to look after vehicle issues. It started off as a small part of my job description, but it soon grew into a full-time role.

  • What do you do to relax at the end of the day?

    I joined a local gym a year ago and try to get there at least three times a week. My daughter is also teaching me to play squash, but I’m not very good.
