AEMP Honors 2011 Fleet Masters Award Winners


The Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) awarded two industry professionals with the 8th annual Fleet Masters Award. The winners were recognized at a luncheon ceremony March 21, 2011 at AEMP’s 29th annual Spring Management Conference in Las Vegas. Fleet professionals Mike Munson of Austin Bridge and Road, Irving, Texas, and Guy Gordon, Certified Equipment Manager of Insituform Technologies, St. Louis, Missouri, were the 2011 award recipients.

The Fleet Master Award recognizes equipment professionals who demonstrate excellence in meeting the unique challenges inherent to delivering cost-effective and cutting-edge management of mixed fleets of on-road and off-road equipment. Past award winners have included representatives from both private and public fleets.
2011 award recipient Mike Munson holds the position of Equipment Director at Austin Bridge and Road. The company, a division of Austin Industries, is focused on transportation infrastructure, and has completed more than $2 billion in heavy civil projects over the past five years.

Mr. Munson and his team manage more than 800 pieces of equipment. To aid in effective fleet management, Mr. Munson says he relies heavily on telematics, and has also implemented GPS tracking on nearly 700 pieces of equipment. He says winning the award was completely unexpected, yet he is proud and grateful, as he feels it is a testament to the hard work and dedication put forth by his entire team.

Guy Gordon, CEM and 2011 Fleet Masters Award winner, leads the equipment management team at Insituform Techologies, Inc., a highly specialized, international construction company. The fleet consists of 1,800 licensed vehicles and 110 off-road units, with many purpose-designed and built machines, and components.

As director of asset management, Mr. Gordon oversees a team of about 45, including two CEMs. Under his leadership, the equipment group has provided continued improvement in the areas of equipment quality, safety, productivity and cost. Gordon is honored to receive the Fleet Masters Award, and proud to be recognized for the hard work and impressive results achieved by his entire team.
