A History of Women in Fleet

The automotive fleet industry was no different than many others in terms of maintaining a "glass ceiling" for women, and the automotive industry has always been a male-dominated business. But we do have our female pioneers, from Helen Bland, who began her career as Hallmark's fleet manager in 1942 (and who ultimately was a founding inductee in the AF Hall of Fame) to Helene Kamon, the first female president of AFLA.

We hope you'll enjoy this look at some very important women to whom the entire industry -- both men and women -- owe a great debt.
