Careers: Fleet CV

Emmanuel Lewis, fleet manager, Vista Retail Support

  • How many vehicles are you responsible for?

    I look after 114 vehicles, all diesel on three-year contract hire. Our engineers use Skoda Octavia estates but we also run 19 Ford Transit Connect vans and have 25 user-chooser vehicles.

  • How long have you been doing the job?

    I’ve looked after Vista’s fleet for just over four years, but have worked in the industry for more than 20.

  • What do you most enjoy about the job?

    I like the hands-on nature as anything to do with the fleet is dealt with by me.

  • Are there any aspects you dislike?

    Spotting a vehicle in our car park with defective tyres, cars with overdue services, unreported damage or unpaid parking fines.

  • Are you following a career path?

    I’ve worked in and around vehicles since leaving school, starting with an apprenticeship, and having worked in fleet as long as I have I think my career path is set.

  • Where is your favourite holiday destination?

    I haven’t got one – my wife hasn’t got to the bottom of her list of places to visit yet!
