Hooksett, N.H. September 6, 2022: Merchants Fleet, the nation’s fastest-growing fleet management company, is proud to announce that Brad Jacobs, VP of Fleet Consulting & Product Development and Hari Nayar, VP of Electrification & Sustainability have been recognized by the Business Intelligence Group’s 2022 Sustainability Awards for their work on Merchants’ revolutionary Fleet Electrification program.
The Sustainability Awards honor those who have made sustainability an integral part of their business practice or overall mission.
“For any company with sustainability goals, fleet electrification is the quickest and easiest way to move the needle. The challenge is that most companies just don’t know where to start” says Brendan P. Keegan, Chairman, CEO & President of Merchants Fleet. “We are extremely proud of the fleet electrification program that Brad, Hari and their teams have created, which provides a clear path to sustainability that will help propel our nation into an emission-free future.”
Merchants’ Electrify Fleet program is an innovative ecosystem of OEM and infrastructure partners designed to provide resources and insights to help clients make a seamless and cost-effective entry into EVs. As a result of the program, over 5.2M miles were driven by Merchants Fleet clients’ EV fleets in 2021, saving an estimated 1.4K metric tons of CO2. Merchants continues to help drive fleet electrification in North America with 40,000 electric vehicles reserved, and $2.5B committed toward having our mobility fleet 50% electric by 2025, and 50% of our clients’ fleets electric by 2030.
“We are proud to reward and recognize Brad and Hari for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
