Fleet CV

Janusz Kozlowski, fleet manager, Tristar Worldwide Chauffeur Services

 

Describe your fleet

We have 700 vehicles on our UK fleet, consisting of Volvo S80s and V70s, Mercedes-Benz E and S Classes and Vianos and BMW 7 Series.

How did you end up in the fleet industry?

I started off as a claims manager, working closely with the fleet management team. Managing fleet was definitely more fun so after a couple of years I moved into this area.

What is your favorite aspect of the job?

The diversity – as well as running the fleet I manage the internal workshop, bodyshop and facilities at our headquarters and I am involved with insurance and environmental activities.

And your least favourite?

Aspects of facilities management, as well as the red tape we deal with.

What are you working on at the moment?

A business plan for the expansion of our bodyshop.

What could you not live without (and why)?

The fleet management software we use. Also, I could not live without my team, who are very dedicated to what we do.
