A fleet manager has become the first to receive a new award designed to commemorate the efforts of a pioneering campaigner for fleet training.
The Peter Moxon Award for Outstanding Training Achievement was presented to Lynn Fortin of Fortin Services for her efforts in gaining formal qualifications.
The award is named after Peter Moxon, a founding council member of the Institute of Car Fleet Management, who died on last year.
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.
Ms Fortin was one of a number of fleet decision-makers who received their formal qualifications in fleet management recently.
They were: Tina Botterill, Toshiba; David Bushnell, Arval; Nicola Giles, Avery Weigh-Tronix, Lisa Granton-Jones, Ashworth Mairs Group; Ian Green, Peverel, Tim Howett, Leasedrive Velo, Claire Hughes, Arval, Laura Smith, NEC, Victoria Outram, Arval, Andrew Parton, SMMT Industry Forum and John Saunders, Guide Dogs for the Blind.
