NAFA 2023 Highlights: Wheels Drives Fleet Innovation and Leadership in Baltimore
By Julie Leicester April 25, 2023
We kicked off the conference in style with an entertaining yet relaxing Baltimore Happy Hour event where our customers, partners and friends enjoyed local cuisine while networking and making connections.
On Monday, April 17th, our very own John Wuich, CAFM, featured in the presentation, “True Budget Impact in Challenging Times” with David Hayward and Richard Baich. We’ve written a short summary of the insightful and informative presentation.
On the second day, our CEO, Shlomo Crandus, kicked off the event with an inspiring keynote on the rapidly evolving landscape of electric vehicles (EVs) and fleet management. He told the audience Wheels is proud to be playing an active part towards the global mission of reducing transportation emissions.
Our VP of Electrification, Maria Neve, also participated in a thought-provoking panel discussion with industry experts, emphasizing the importance of collaboration and strategy. Key takeaways included:
Work with the right constituents
Stay up to date on regulations
Get everyone to the table
Implement the right policies
Later, Jason Lipes, AVP, Operational Excellence and Quality, and Sara Sweeney, Senior Product Manager, shared their expertise on change management. In the presentation, they revealed ten key tactics for success – insights that will help you navigate change smoothly and keep your organization adaptable in an ever-changing landscape.
And finally, Wheels DE&I Leaders Maria Neve, Karen Henry, SVP of Human Resources and Sue Germaine, Director of Risk and Compliance, as part of the discussion, shared key steps and recommendations to foster a more diverse, equitable and inclusive (DEI) workplace that benefits everyone.
