Leading Fleet Management Consultancy to Share Industry Practices and Challenges

Rockville, MD (January 29, 2019) — Mercury Associates, Inc., the largest dedicated fleet management consultancy in North America, announced that company leaders will be presenting at two industry conferences this week in Southern California. Paul Lauria, President of Mercury Associates, will be the keynote speaker at the Municipal Equipment Maintenance Association (MEMA) SoCal Conference in Beverly Hills discussing ‘Are You Ready for the Perfect Storm – Managing Fleet Performance’. Colleague Steve Saltzgiver, Manager for Mercury, will take part in a panel discussion on ‘What Consultants Can Do for Your Fleet Operations’. On January 31st, Lauria will again discuss the Perfect Storm at the inaugural National Utilities Fleet Management Conference in Newport Beach.

“I look forward to discussing the implications for fleet owners and fleet management professionals of three key industry trends: rapid changes in automotive technology, growing expectations for data-driven management practices created by the ‘Big Data’ phenomenon, and the loss of institutional knowledge as veteran fleet managers retire and are replaced,” stated Lauria.

MEMA SoCal is taking place at the Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills on Wednesday, January 30th with Lauria’s keynote address from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM. The panel discussion with Saltzgiver follows from 1:00 PM – 1:45 PM.
