The Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP) has added three fleet operators as directors to the main board following a vote by the organization’s members.

The three new board members are:

Martin Edgecox - national fleet manager at National Highways, where he has worked since 2013. He has significant fleet experience in both the public and private sectors, working extensively in zero emissions by co-ordinating with the Department for Transport and Office of Zero Emission Vehicles to meet ambitious carbon targets.

Matthew Hammond - head of fleet at Altrad Services. Matthew is a national and international CPC holder with more than 12 years of experience in transport and fleet management. He has been in his current role for eight years, operating a mixed fleet of 1,200 vehicles across the UK with cradle-to-grave fleet management experience in cars and commercial vehicles.

Lee Jackson - head of fleet and transport at Marston Holdings and has been involved in fleet for more than 20 years. He was previously head of fleet and transport at both HSS and Stericycle on an international basis. For the AFP, he has worked on Kerbside Charging Network and HMRC AER projects, and is a member of the Northwest Freight Council.

Paul Hollick, chair of the AFP, said:

“We’d like to welcome Martin, Matthew and Lee, as three well-established commercial vehicle fleet managers, to the AFP board. Crucially, we hope they will play a key role in shaping our future van training courses – both for ICE and EV – within the AFP Fleet Academy. We are doing more and more work in the area of van fleet management, as well as cars, so they will be a major asset to the organization.”
