We did it! Drive & Survive has won what is arguably the highest accolade in the fleet industry when it won the ‘Best Risk Management Company’ category in the 2007 Fleet News Awards in mid March.

In a glittering ceremony reminiscent of the Oscars, some 1500 guests witnessed a string of fleet industry luminaries collect their much sought after trophies on stage at the Grosvenor House Hotel from TV personality Nick Ross. But it was not only Drive & Survive that was briefly centre stage on the night.

The spotlight also fell on three of Drive & Survive’s largest customers that evening. Ford came out on top with the ‘Fleet Manufacturer of  Van interiors of the Year’ title; the ‘UK Fleet of the Year’ went to PriceWaterhouseCoopers and ‘Fleet Manager of the Year’ in the 401 + vehicle category went to Chuck Ives of Network Rail.

Drive & Survive General Manager Andy Neale had plenty to smile about: “Whilst we are thrilled with our own result, I find it particularly gratifying that three of our larger customers received important awards too. I like to think that the work we are doing with all three companies to reduce fleet running costs and promote best practice contributed to their victories to some degree.”
