Fleet CV: Phil Green

Phil Green, facilities and fleet manager, Dekor and Celtic Crusaders RFC

Describe your fleet.

We have 34 vehicles – 31 cars and three commercials.

How did you come to work in fleet?

I have a varied vehicle background going back to my time in the Army but acquired the fleet along with my facilities role for the rugby club.

Would you recommend working in the industry?

Yes I would. The combination of responsibilities is a challenge – looking at duty of care, purchasing, funding, insurance, maintenance etc.

What are you working on at the moment?

Along with other facilities projects, I’ve just managed to get our entire rugby club staff into a combination of owned, sponsored or leased cars.

What is the biggest challenge with your fleet?

Improving the attitude of some of the younger rugby players allotted a company car and therefore improving the care of our vehicles.

How do you relax at the weekend?

Watching rugby, juggling with my fantasy football teams, working out at the gym and hill walking in the Brecon Beacons.
