Project specialist: Fleet

Steve joined ERA Group in 2017, after more than 20 years in vehicle fleet management. Steve has extensive knowledge of vehicle leasing, occupational road risk management & driver training and accident management, as well as experience of providing daily rental solutions to the UK corporate sector.

Steve has also owned and ran his own successful vehicle accident management business; he sold it in late 2013 and remained with the new owner.
