Meet Richard, the newly appointed Transformation Director at Carbn Asset Management. Simply put Richard has come on board with Carbn to help organisations take their fleet into an exciting low emission future.
“I am excited by change and finding practical solutions to problems. I enjoy working with people committed to a more sustainable future. My role is to assist with the transformation of vehicle fleets to lower emissions, and it is important that we do this in a way that is realistic and achievable for each organisation based on their individual circumstances.” says fleet expert Richard.
As many of us know, the transport sector has entered an unprecedented period of disruption with new enabling technologies allowing organisations to re-imagine their approach to mobility and sustainability.
Part of the solution!
When Richard was asked about his motivations for joining Carbon, he said that “the opportunity to be at the forefront of such significant change was very motivating. Carbn has provided me with an opportunity to be part of a sustainable solution rather than an exponentially increasing problem.” Richard went on to say that regardless of your view on Climate Change, the steps taken to combat it, result in beneficial outcomes for everyone, including reduced congestion, improved air quality and economic outcomes. We might even be able help save the planet at the same time!”
Over twenty years’ experience.
With over twenty years’ experience in the transport sector, Richard has developed an in-depth understanding of vehicle fleets and how they support businesses. He has had the opportunity to experience multiples roles with transportation space including working with a vehicle manufacturer, Fleet management, and Fleet leasing organisations.
Lets’ make a plan, together.
Transforming your vehicle fleet to lower emissions, including electrification, doesn’t happen overnight. It is a process of transition over time that requires an ongoing balance of financial, logistical, operational and behavioural factors.
“Within this environment I have developed a strong interest in lowering emissions, including implementation of EV’s and have been involved in significant fleet electrification projects. We have seen mistakes made by businesses making decisions in isolation rather than as part of an overall transition plan and I, for one, am keen to share those experiences.”
If you are interested in having a no obligation chat with Richard at Carbn he would love to hear from you. They are keen to provide the expertise, knowledge and transition planning to ensure that each step on your fleet journey is the right one. Contact Richard here or give him a call on 027 5111 568.
