Willson comes on board as the EST announces changes including the introduction of two new categories to the awards, which are now open to applications from public and private sector organisations, fleets and suppliers.
The two new awards include the Ultra Low Emission Vehicle Manufacturer award which recognises the importance of technology in reducing carbon emissions, while the Individual Achievement award champions individuals that have played a significant role in greening their organisation’s fleets.
Speaking on the re-vamped Fleet Hero Awards, chief executive Philip Sellwood commented that the judges will be looking for how organisations have used new technology and innovative solutions to improve their fleet fuel efficiency.
Sellwood said: ‘Innovation will be at the heart of our new-look Fleet Hero Awards. We want to hear about organisations that have taken innovative approaches to their fleets which not only cut carbon emissions but also helped save money.
“This is the ninth year for the awards and they continue to go from strength to strength. The two new award categories reflect how the Fleet Hero Awards are evolving and developing alongside the latest industry trends and innovation.’
