Fleet CV: Lisa Barson, transport administrator, Severn Trent Water
Describe your fleet.
We have nearly 5,000 vehicles, ranging from a Ford Focus to a whale tanker and there’s even a couple of boats on fleet for the reservoirs.
What are you working on at the moment?
I’m overseeing the changes to our car policy and looking at fuel management on our sites.
How did you get into the fleet industry?
By accident really. I was given the chance to take on this project and jumped at it. I was working as a concrete plant manager – cars are a little easier to manage.
Would you recommend a career in fleet?
Yes I would. I find my job very fulfilling and I like helping people. I have also gained a wealth of knowledge on different vehicles.
What would make your life easier at work?
I think I have all the equipment I need to complete my job although some of it could do with updating.
What is your favourite holiday destination?
I love San Antonio in Ibiza. It is quiet or lively depending on what you fancy and there is always loads to do.
