Element Fleet Management appointed Chris Gittens to the role of president of Canadian operations. Gittens will report to Kristi Webb, president and CEO of Element Fleet Management North America.
Gittens joined Element in 2013 as chief commercial officer for Canada. He has worked closely with most of the company’s largest accounts across North America, and has been key to delivering a common Element approach to customers across the U.S. and Canada.
“Element has a strong history and bright future in Canada,” Gittens said. “My focus will be on ensuring operational excellence in everything we do, so that our customers in Canada can take advantage of new services and data-driven insights to improve their fleets.”
“Since 2012, the Canadian leadership team has built a strong foundation and driven a singular customer experience that has made customers’ fleets safer, smarter and more productive,” Webb said. “We’re excited for Chris to use his industry expertise to continue to grow our Canadian operations.”
Gittens succeeded Sebastien Blondin, who will pivot to a strategic business development role with the Element Fleet Management corporate team, focused on exploring new growth opportunities in adjacent markets. In this new role, Blondin will report to Element Fleet Management CEO Bradley Nullmeyer.
