Executive Fleet Management Tips:
Develop, regularly update and communicate an executive fleet policy with a focus on acquisition and disposal/buyout rules/guidelines to help manage the executives’ expectations, the customer’s liability and the bottom-line/tax implications. Let executives know that buying the most current model year usually makes the best financial sense for their employers, whether or not buying last year’s model saves the driver a few thousand dollars. To get the best possible value, let the fleet management or leasing companies leverage their long-time relationships in negotiations with the manufacturers and dealers.
