NAFA Congratulates Rick Longobart On Leadership Award

Rick Longobart has become the latest Member of NAFA to be recognized with a fleet industry award. The Facilities and Fleet Manager for the City of Santa Ana, California earned the first ever Government Fleet magazine Visionary Leadership Award at the 2010 Government Fleet Expo & Conference on June 22 in Austin, Texas. The award recognized Longobart for being an innovative fleet manager.

Innovative is a good description of Longobart, who was a finalist for the 2009 Public Sector Fleet Manager of the Year Award and whose fleet was named as one of the 100 Best Fleets of 2010. In addition, Longobart was honored with NAFA’s 2009 Green Fleet Award and was presented with a Fleet Environmental Leadership Award at the 2009 Green Fleet Conference.

Longobart has been a Member of NAFA’s Pacific Southwest Chapter since joining the Association in 2008. His fleet was joined on the list of 100 Best Fleets by more than 50 fellow NAFA Members proving, yet again, that the best and brightest minds in fleet management are part of NAFA Fleet Management Association.

“NAFA would like to congratulate Rick Longobart on being named the first recipient of Government Fleet magazine’s Visionary Leadership Award,” said NAFA’s Executive Director, Phillip E. Russo, CAE. “We are always proud when Members of our Association receive recognition for the fine work they do in helping the fleet management profession reach new levels.”

Longobart is currently President of the Municipal Equipment Maintenance Association.
