Keith Kerman is Deputy Commissioner at Department of Citywide Administrative Services and NYC’s first Chief Fleet Officer. Keith leads safety and sustainability through NYC’s Vision Zero and Clean Fleet initiatives. He implements nation leading efforts in shared servicing, telematics, truck side-guards, electric vehicles, solar carports, and biofuels. NYC has nearly 30,000 units, the largest US municipal fleet. NYC Fleet operates the largest EV fleet (3,100+) and charging network (1,070+) in NY State.
Under Kerman’s leadership, the City of New York has implemented one of the largest single municipal government telematics rollouts with over 15,000 city vehicles having telematics systems installed. NYC Fleet also supports the Department of Education’s Office of Pupil Transportation and the school bus contractors with an additional 10,800 buses tracked.
Keith will soon complete his 28th year of public service including 17 with NYC Parks managing Citywide Operations and working from Central Park. Keith is from Massachusetts and Harvard College. In 2019 Keith received the Sloan Public Service Award, referred to as the Nobel Prize of NY public service. In 2021, Keith received a national Climate Leadership Award from the Climate Registry, C2RS, and Bloomberg Philanthropies.
The big picture with telematics is that it can help reduce liability, improve maintenance, and yield savings — but that’s only if it’s used effectively. More Info
