Further, he was awarded runner-up status in the Global Fleet Manager of the Year category of the Fleet Europe Awards 2019. It’s the first time an American fleet manager has won an award at the prestigious event. Dmochowsky was presented with the honor in early November.
Dmochowsky manages a global fleet of over 10,000 vehicles. According to the Fleet Europe press release, "The jury was impressed Dmochowsky’s holistic vision regarding global fleet management optimization, with the successful engagement of his top management at headquarters and his team members" in Europe, North America, Latin America, and in Asia-Pacific.
Dmochowsky and his team have contributed to a significant cost-saving initiative, resulting from a significant change in the global fleet selection process, together with policy harmonization. From 2015 to 2016, there was a 21% reduction in global fleet spend, continuing until today with a total 7% reduction in the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) between 2017 and 2019.
