A Little Client Love

 

I am writing on behalf of Preston Ingalls and TBR Strategies regarding the expertise level in Fleet Management. Preston and I have worked together during my time with D.R. Allen and Son Inc. During that time, I have gotten to know Preston and his Team quite well and can thoroughly vouch for his character and abilities. Preston is a pleasure to work with because his knowledge, skillset, and abilities within the Fleet Management field. He and his Team have provided a high level of competency, resources and background that allow any company to understand the direction they need to improve in. My background has carried me through the ranks of Technician, Lead Foreman, Maintenance Supervisor, Fleet Manager, and Equipment Manager. Having started in dealership setting within the private sector gave me the knowledge to advance with my career. I moved into the public sector as a Technician and ending my tenure as a Fleet Manager with the City of Durham NC. I moved back into the private sector holding various rolls within sales, which lead me back to Equipment Management. Preston’s understanding about the Fleet Industry has benefited D.R. Allen and Son Inc., along with many other companies. His testimonials and results are proven. They have worked with organizations large and small. No matter if it is private or public, Fleet Management is still the same. Driving efficiencies when it relates to preventive maintenance, parts spending, correct personnel in the right roles, safety and many more areas. In today’s business plan, saving money is key without sacrificing quality. Preston and TBR delivers the quality! With his relentless motivation and his knowledge of Fleet Industry, Preston would bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to any organization looking to improve their Fleet practices. I know he would be an excellent fit with your organization. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at the above address.
