Chevin Welcomes Experienced Professionals to US Sales Team
Bill Griffiths is appointed as new VP of Global Consulting and Client Services, while two existing members of the US sales team receive promotions.
We are pleased to announce Bill Griffiths as our new VP of Global Consulting & Client Services. Entering a newly created position, Griffiths will work closely with Chevin clients to not only increase their understanding of FleetWave and its capabilities, but also drive efficiencies and cost savings.
David Gladding, Chevin’s Global Sales & Marketing Director, said:
“Bill Griffiths brings to Chevin a skill set that will add tremendous value for our clients. As a very successful fleet manager and a former user of our FleetWave software, he has a high level of credibility and we are very excited to welcome an industry leader on board.”
Prior to joining the Chevin team, Griffiths worked as the Senior Director of Vehicle Fleet Strategy at the MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority) in Boston – one of the many roles that make up more than 26-years’ worth of fleet experience. During that time, he has worked at all levels of the fleet management cycle, including as the Division Chief for Fleet Management Services in Montgomery County and Fleet Manager at the Smithsonian Institution and Forest Service, as well as being responsible for numerous vehicle maintenance and supervisory roles in the US Air Force.
In 2015, Government Fleet magazine named Griffiths as ‘Public Sector Fleet Manager of the Year’ for leading efforts in Montgomery County to significantly improve the running of its fleet operation. This included an increase in equipment reliability (+43%) and PM compliance (+15%), and a reduction of downtime (-20%) which lowered the fleet’s cost per mile (-8%) while traveling additional mileage (+20%).
Speaking on his new role at Chevin, Griffiths said:
“Fleets are rapidly evolving and becoming more complex and organizations are being challenged to become more efficient, so today’s fleet professional needs to be data fluent with the ability to educate stakeholders on what’s critical. I believe that FleetWave is the tool that every fleet manager needs in their toolbox.
“Throughout my 25 years in the industry, I’ve learned how important access to actionable data is – it’s vital for success. That being said, Chevin offers value beyond software, working closely with clients to help evaluate business processes, incorporate best practices into the core functions of their operations and leverage information to make strong data-based decisions.
“I’m very excited to join the Chevin team.”
We are also pleased to announce two promotions for existing members of our sales team, Aaron Denton and Joe Morgan.
Denton has been promoted to the role of Regional Sales Leader and Morgan is taking on the role of Regional Enterprise Manager.
“Aaron Denton’s energy, passion for sales and professionalism helps him build rapport with customers. The effectiveness of his approach, which is proven in his sales record to date, will serve Chevin well as he builds his sales team based on the very high standards he has already set.
“As part of that team, Joe Morgan will use his extensive sales experience and vast industry knowledge that has enabled him to excel in this business for many years. Chevin has had a great start in the U.S. this year, and with this new team of professionals we can continue that success and build for an even better 2019.”
