Trevose, PA, August 13, 2014 – Kathi Croze, voted one of the most influential women in the fleet industry, will show how police and government fleets around the country have increased their productivity and saved time and money by outsourcing their accident management programs in a presentation next week at the Police Fleet Expo 2014 in Louisville, KY.
Ms. Croze, national sales manager for the government fleet market at the CEI Group, Inc. (CEI), will make her presentation during an hour-long breakout session called “Accident Cost Management,” next Wednesday, August 20. Joining her as presenters in the session will be David Henrichs, fleet manager of the Sarasota County, Florida, sheriff’s office, a CEI accident management fleet customer, and Bill DeRousse of the Police Fleet Institute.
“Fleets that outsource their accident repair programs find they manage their time more efficiently, reduce vehicle downtime, stretch the taxpayer’s dollar, streamline and digitize their data and documentation, and have fingertip access to in-depth analytical reports,” said Ms. Croze.
Ms. Croze will also be available throughout the trade show at CEI’s Booth 360 on the event’s exhibition floor at the Kentucky International Conference Center. The annual event is being held from Monday through Thursday, August 18-21.
Ms. Croze was named one of the most influential women in the fleet industry in 2012 by Automotive Fleet magazine. Last year, she was awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the National Conference of State Fleet Administrators.
