Needed to be Done "The 2013 Global Fleet Management Conference and the partnership with Fleet Europe was something that needed to be done as everyone starts to look at global programs.

Listening to everyone, I felt we all have the same concerns and struggles with our programs." Keith Scolan Manager, Global Fleet ITW Glenview, Ill. Mike Butsch of Joy Global posed a question to a speaker. Butsch was also part of a panel outlining how feet and procurement could work together more effectively.
