  • (1888PressRelease) January 16, 2016 - NAFA Fleet Management Association has extended its deadline on Fleet Excellence Awards (FLEXY) nominations from January 10 to January 22.

    Embarking on its fourth year, the FLEXYs will once again award in the fields of sustainability, safety, and overall fleet management achievement and the competition will be as fierce as in prior years.

    "The quality of the submissions has been outstanding, but it is still a wide-open race," said NAFA Chief Executive Officer Phillip E. Russo, CAE. "Entries have been very thought-provoking and will surely inspire. Sharing this incredible information not only shows fleet peers new solutions to the problems they face daily, but spurs innovation on a large scale, helping the fleet profession grow."

    NAFA welcomes individuals and teams to submit an entry for the 2016 Fleet Excellence Awards at Three finalists for each award will be chosen for both public fleets and corporate fleets. In addition, one award will be presented in the area of fleet leadership.

    Finalists will be notified in February and are invited to attend the awards ceremony in Austin, Texas on April 19, where the winner will be announced live on stage in front of hundreds of fleet professionals. The awards presentation is part of an opening night party that celebrates the start of NAFA's annual Institute & Expo.

    Finalists are chosen from an esteemed panel of judges that includes fleet management professionals, members of the media, and industry organizations. To ensure the legitimacy of the awards, judges never see the names of the nominees nor the organizations they work for. Voting is 100 percent blind; based solely upon the achievements listed by the nominees on their submission forms. This allows for judging by merit, not name recognition.

    Individuals may nominate themselves or someone else. Fleet suppliers are free to nominate their clients as well. Entries in multiple categories are also accepted. If additional information for a submission is required, the nominee will be notified to present further data.

    "The FLEXY Award has proven itself to be the preeminent industry award for fleet, and celebrates achievement at the highest level," said Russo. "NAFA is proud to host the FLEXYs for a fourth year as part of our Opening Night Celebration at I&E in Austin, Texas. I encourage everyone to submit their successful fleet management efforts into nomination before the January 22 deadline."

    The submissions process will close at the end of the business day on January 22. To submit an entry or to find out more information on the FLEXY Awards visit
