No bull. Just “Straight Talk”.

The Straight Talk on Fleet is a brand new podcast hosted by award-winning fleet leader Erin Gilchrist. On each episode, Erin will break down fleet management, cut through the noise and get to the real issues that safety and operations leaders struggle with every day.

The goal is to get to the bottom of how leaders can break down the silos of information that stand between them and the ability to run a safe, efficient and sustainable fleet. To accelerate change management and use real-time, accurate data to drive massive efficiencies across fleet-focused business processes. And to elevate fleet careers by sharing emerging best practices.

In this short episode, you’ll get to know Erin and the podcast as we share a few highlights from an interview with Erin. She takes a one-time turn in the guest chair and talks about her background, passion for fleet management and vision for the podcast. Be sure to subscribe to the show wherever you get your podcasts.

I began my professional career in retail management and quickly realized a passion for delighting customers. I then transitioned to the supply chain side to understand how our products flowed through manufacturing, distribution, and logistics processes to finally reach customers.

Little did I know this would be the start of my fleet management career. I spent the next 16 years in the automotive industry managing Safelite’s national fleet of commercial vehicles. I’ve seen everything in those 16 years, and know how difficult the job is. Now I am building a community to help fleet managers help each other, share winning strategies, and discover the next groundbreaking technologies that make a day in the life so much easier.
