AFLA is pleased to announce the President’s Award winners for 2019:
Brad Bohnen, Head of Fleet Management at Ericsson Inc. and the Treasurer of AFLA, is receiving an award for his long tenure with AFLA and his thoughtful approach to the reporting of the association’s finances. Under Brad’s tenure, the budget has grown significantly, allowing AFLA to invest in the exploration of new opportunities to advance the fleet management and mobility industry.
Steve Bender, the President and Owner of Fleet Street Remarketing LLC, is being recognized for his dedication to the organization over his two terms on the AFLA Board of Directors. Steve is one of AFLA’s strategic thinkers who not only sees the big picture but can also help chart out the path to success. While Steve will be missed on the board, his influence on the industry and organization are undeniable.
Kristofer Bush, the Vice President of Product Management at LeasePlan USA, is being recognized for his contribution as the chair of the Membership Taskforce as well as to his service on the AFLA Board of Directors. Under Kris’s leadership, AFLA’s membership continues to grow, including the vital membership segment of corporate buyers. In fact, corporate buyer membership is up significantly compared to the same time last year, and the membership committee is continuing to bring more into the AFLA fold.
AFLA president, Dave Durepo, announced the awards on Friday saying, “These volunteers have delivered countless hours and proven results over the course of multiple years. AFLA owes a debt of gratitude to them for their service to our organization, and I couldn’t be prouder to be on the same team as each of them.”
AFLA’s President’s Awards are given at the discretion of the elected president, for those who have gone above and beyond to advance AFLA and the corporate fleet management profession.
