04/30/2020 | NAFA Announces Bill Schankel, CAE, as New Chief Executive Officer

NAFA Fleet Management Association (NAFA), the vehicle fleet industry’s largest membership association, announces Bill Schankel, CAE, as its new Chief Executive Officer. Schankel has served as NAFA’s Interim CEO since August 2019. He joined the organization in September 2017 as NAFA’s Chief of Staff & Operations. The selection of Schankel caps an extensive search process facilitated by JDG Associates, a nationwide executive search firm which specializes in placing association executives who will achieve immediate and long-term goals. The process started a large initial prospect pool which was narrowed by stages to a group who interviewed with NAFA’s Executive Search Committee, and then to a final round who met with Board of Directors’ leadership.

This brought the Manheim Used Vehicle Value Index to 141.9, a 4.4% increase from a year ago. Given the unprecedented downturn in sales and market disruption that the industry is experiencing because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the decline we have observed thus far in Manheim Market Report values at the vehicle level and at all aggregation levels does not fully reflect the declines occurring in the relatively limited number of sales transactions taking place.
