FORT LAUDERDALE (May 20, 2020) – Fleet Advantage, a leading innovator in truck fleet business analytics, equipment financing, and lifecycle cost management announced today that James Griffin, Chief Operating Officer & Chief Technology Officer, and Brian J. McMahon, Vice President of Strategic Fleet Solutions, achieved their 2020 National Private Truck Council (NPTC) Certified Transportation Professional (CTP) recognition.
Griffin has over 24 years of experience in technology development and strategic planning for technological and informational organizations. His expertise in software development helps him to serve clients and provide them with the best solutions for lifecycle asset management. Griffin works to lower overall costs for transportation fleets based on data and insight provided by Fleet Advantage’s innovative analytics platform, ATLAAS (Advanced Truck Lifecycle Administrative Analytics Software).
Progressing through multiple roles within Fleet Advantage, McMahon is now the VP of Strategic Fleet Solutions and responsible for providing solutions for lifecycle asset management and financing of class 8 tractors and trailers. Brian previously held roles in the Transaction Management Team as a Data Analyst, responsible for all data analytics and pricing models. He has completed fleet studies with over millions of miles worth of data and helped build and structure opportunities based on the fleet’s performance data.
While CTP graduates are recognized yearly at NPTC’s Annual Conference, the 2020 group of graduates will be recognized next year due to the COVID-19 postponement.
“Fleet Advantage is an allied member and participates in NPTC’s Annual Conference and other events throughout the year. The CTP accreditation sets the highest industry standards for transportation professionals,” said John Flynn, CEO at Fleet Advantage. “We take pride in the number of CTP-credentialed professionals we employ at Fleet Advantage, as we strive to continuously maintain the highest level of seasoned executives in the marketplace who can leverage their knowledge and expertise to support our clients and their needs. We are saddened that we had to forgo the Annual Conference and awards ceremony this year but look forward to future NPTC events and the show in 2021.”
Since the CTP designation was first introduced in 1993, more than 1,800 fleet and transportation professionals have earned the right to add CTP after their name. CTPs are raising industry standards, and in turn, increasing the respect and prestige of the fleet and transportation profession.
