In conjunction with Wheels Canada 60th Anniversary celebrations, a client appreciation event was held in Burlington, ON. Wheels Canada clients and staff came together for an evening of information, insight, networking and more. Keynote Speaker Ahsan Rahim, Wheels COO, gave a mobility trends presentation that included how EVs, connected vehicles, mobility as a service (MaaS) and autonomous vehicles are impacting fleets, and how Wheels is supporting its clients to address and capitalize on the opportunities and challenges ahead. The presentation was a catalyst for a customer led discussion on the strategies their companies are using in dealing with a transformative fleet landscape.

“The Wheels client appreciation event is about education and celebration. It serves as a great opportunity to strengthen our partnerships with, and demonstrate our appreciation to, our clients. All while providing them with some insights into the exciting fleet industry,” said Suresh Rajapakse, Vice President of Account Management. “This year we have another reason to celebrate as we’ve been supporting clients in Canada for 60 years! Since partnering with our first client in 1958, we’ve grown to represent over 140 clients across multiple industries. We are honored to be the fleet management of choice for these organizations.”

Discussions continued through dinner and the event concluded with Wheels thanking its clients for their business and the FMC’s pledge to continue being on the cutting edge of fleet management in service of their commercial and corporate vehicle fleet needs.
