A key figure in the establishment of the Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM), Alan Myers, has died.
It was Mr Myer’s company, McKenzie Myers, that funded the original investment that made it possible for the ICFM to be created.
Mr Myers was also instrumental in the establishment of the original ICFM council of nine well-known industry professionals.
Peter Eldridge, the present director and secretary of the ICFM said: "Alan was without doubt one of the fleet industry's real characters.
"Alan was a tremendous innovator in every respect and the ICFM owe a debt of gratitude to both Alan and Peter Moxon for their combined foresight and energy during those early years and the successful legacy that is the present day ICFM.
"Alan will be sadly missed."
