Last week, we held our annual Element Fleet Canada Ride and Drive event in Toronto. Over 350 attendees gathered for this premiere event to hear from industry experts on important fleet topics. It was a packed house as Chris Gittens, President, Element Fleet Management Canada kicked off the event on Wednesday morning. Chris was accompanied by Element’s new CEO, Jay Forbes, and Kristi Webb, CEO of Element North America on the main stage.
