    • Business

Hello and welcome to this edition of State of the Fleet Industry Spotlight Series, sponsored by US Bank, in which we engage with leaders in fleet on what’s driving the market today.

I’m Chris Brown, associate publisher of Automotive Fleet. In this episode, I connect with Debbie Struna, national account manager for Fleet Street Remarketing, former board member of the American Fleet Leasing Association (AFLA), and chairperson for the Women in Fleet Management mentorship task force.

Debbie and I discuss how organizations can best plan for succession in the fleet manager’s role and the resources available for new entrants into the fleet community.

Today's topics include:
- Struna explains how she got into fleet.

- She discusses how new fleet managers can benefit from association involvement and industry events.

- Struna shares how to use internal meetings in the organization to create better awareness of the fleet manager’s role.

- She offers the idea of creating an industrywide document with best practices for succession planning.

- She discusses the succession process when she left her role as a fleet manager to take a new job.

- Struna suggests leveraging the vendor community for knowledge, along with fleet publications and media.

- She explains AFLA’s mentorship program.
