Fleet CV

Jane Edgworth-Lane, transport manager, Mitie Pest Control

Describe your fleet.
We have 100 vehicles – 15 cars and 85 vans, all purchased outright.

What advice would you give to someone starting in the fleet industry?
Listen and learn as much as you can from colleagues and others within the industry and be prepared to change some of your working habits.

What is your greatest challenge at work?
Keeping everything up to date and ensuring we get the best from our vehicle technicians.

What is your biggest achievement at work?
During the fuel shortages in 2005, I was able to provide an information map of all the areas where fuel was available and was the point of contact for up to 30 companies.

How is the fleet industry changing?
The industry is always changing and now we have more green concerns. We respect our vehicles more, as well as the impact they have on the environment.

What do you do to relax?
I love interior design and have done both my own houses and those of my friends.
