30 Years of CAFM®


A graduate of The George Washington University and a Marine veteran, Richard Hilmer has been in private and local government fleet management for thirty years. he managed private construction fleets for ten years before transitioning to the public sector. “I have progressed from Fleet Manager for one of the local commissions to Fleet Manager for Prince George’s County as a whole,” Richard said. “NAFA membership and CAFM® certification have greatly benefited my career through continuing education, networking opportunities, and professional credibility.”

“The CAFM® program taught me that I still had a lot to learn. (But after I graduated), when I applied for promotional opportunities, my CAFM® designation definitely opened doors and provided instant credibility. While they may have not understood the intricacies of Fleet Management and been familiar with the curriculum, they did realize that I had taken the time and made the effort to become certified and that my professional skills and abilities had been reviewed by a national, knowledgeable third party.”
