After 14 years with the association, Philip E. Russo, CAE, Chief Executive Office of NAFA Fleet Management Association, has moved on. Russo’s last day with NAFA was August 2, 2019.
Russo, who has been with NAFA since 2005 as its Executive Director and CEO, had an employment contract that was set to expire at the end of this year. Russo and the NAFA Board of Directors agreed on an exit strategy that will permit Russo to leave before then.
“Phil is well-respected and appreciated by the fleet management community,” said NAFA President Patti Earley, CAFM®. “He has left an indelible mark on the association; we thank him for his service and wish him well in his new ventures.”
NAFA is beginning an immediate search for its next CEO. Bill Schankel, CAE, NAFA’s Chief of Staff & Operations, will serve as the association’s Interim CEO.
