Excitement abounded on Tuesday evening, April 8, as the winners of the 2014 Fleet Excellence Awards ascended the stage at the Minneapolis Convention Center, Minneapolis, MN, and claimed their awards. NAFA's Fleet Excellence Awards kick off the Association's yearly conference, the Institute & Expo.

The FLEXYs are open to all fleet professionals, regardless of whether or not they were members of NAFA. Industry leaders, acting as judges in the selection process for finalists and winners, never saw the names of nominees or the organizations they work for. Voting was 100 percent blind; based solely upon the actions and ideas listed by the nominees on their submission forms. This allowed for unbiased selection based strictly on the quality of nominee accomplishments.
