Lynne Bundle, fleet manager, Pfizer
Describe your fleet
We have around 1,400 vehicles – 59 are vans and other site-based vehicles and the rest are cars. Field managers are restricted to Volkswagens and Audis and senior managers have a user chooser policy.
How did you get into the fleet industry?
By accident – I covered for someone on maternity leave and stayed for 12 years.
What is your greatest challenge at work?
Striking a balance between HR requirements, motivating drivers and cost control.
What do you feel is your biggest achievement?
Turning a good fleet into a great fleet by maximising efficiencies and setting boundaries and tight processes with our leasing company, so that our outsourcing policy is now properly clarified.
How is the industry changing?
It is changing rapidly with constant legislation, especially concerning health and safety and duty of care.
What would be your ideal weekend?
Having the kids visit, setting a coal fire in the hearth and sharing lots of laughter.
