Mercury Associates, Inc. is a leading provider of fleet management consulting services. With offices in two states and consultants across the United States and Canada, our staff of professional fleet consultants has assisted hundreds of public and private sector clients evaluate and identify opportunities to improve all facets of their fleet management and operating practices. Our consulting team combines years of hands-on fleet management experience with more than three decades of fleet management consulting experience. This combination of experience enables our clients to tackle a wide array of challenges and opportunities, secure in the knowledge that our findings will be technically sound and defensible to senior management, elected officials, and other decision makers, but also practical and "implementable."

Our work with fleets ranging in size from fewer than 100 to more than 25,000 vehicles and pieces of equipment has given us a full appreciation of the daily demands and expectations that most fleet management organizations share in common, and of the operational, managerial, and political environments that make each fleet manager's job unique. We do not employ a "cookie cutter" approach to our consulting engagements. Rather, we tailor each project to the particular circumstances, needs, and objectives of our client. We are passionate about seeing our recommendations implemented, so we work hard to understand the communication channels and decision making processes through which a fleet manager must navigate if he or she is to effect real business process changes and tangible, measurable improvements in performance.

The key principals in our firm are:
