Trevose, PA, March 19, 2014 – Kathi Croze, CEI’s national sales manager for the government fleet market, will be one of the presenters at the Oklahoma Public Fleet Managers Association (OPFMA) meeting next month, where the topic will be “Fleet Best Practices, Success Stories and Current Challenges.”

Ms. Croze will demonstrate to Oklahoma fleet managers how government fleets across the country have saved time and money by outsourcing their accident management activities, and will cite case studies showing how the results were achieved.

The April 3 gathering of the OPFLMA – the first member meeting of the recently revived organization – will be held at the Oklahoma University Health Science Center in Oklahoma City.

“Two of the primary reasons government fleets use CEI for collision repair services are that their repair cycle time is greatly reduced, and the data we collect and return to them is in an easily manageable format,” said Ms. Croze. “We can break down their repair costs and accident information so they know the who, what, when, where and how much of each accident, by department. That information is very powerful to them and helps make them look good in the eyes of their management,” said Ms. Croze.

For more information about the event or the OPFMA, please contact President Brian Franklin by phone at (918) 596-9810 or email at

A long-term veteran of the automotive fleet industry, Ms. Croze was presented last year with the Distinguished Service Award by the National Conference of State Fleet Administrators. In 2012, she was also named one of the top women in the fleet industry by the trade magazine, Automotive Fleet. She has also been a member of the NAFA Fleet Management Association for 35 years and was named its first female affiliate trustee in 2003.
