ICFM’s rapidly expanding Corporate Investor Programme has been joined by Sign Language, the fleet vehicle livery and branding specialist. The company is also the first one in its sector to join the Programme, which is designed to appeal to employers that provide products and services to fleets.

The Corporate Investor Programme aims to further raise the standards of fleet industry professionals and overcome a possible skills and knowledge shortage inside many employers. In addition, member businesses also become more closely involved in ICFM initiatives, which include training for employees, the organisation’s annual conference and Masterclasses on key industry issues.

“Becoming involved with ICFM will align the business even more closely with contract hire and leasing companies, rental firms, end-user fleets and motor manufacturers,” said Mel Goodliffe, commercial director, Sign Language.

“We will be looking to encourage our employees to enrol on to ICFM training courses so they can increase their fleet experience while, as a business, becoming involved in seminars and workshops,” he continued.

Sign Language is today part of CGI Creative Graphics International, which is headquartered in Bedfordshire. CGI has almost 40 years of experience and a client portfolio of global blue chip motor manufacturers, airlines and engineering conglomerates in more than 25 different countries worldwide.

Other companies that have also joined ICFM’s Corporate Investor Programme include Ambit, Auto Windscreens, Chargemaster, Geotab, Kwik Fit, Michelin, Pendragon Vehicle Management, SG Fleet, The Accident Exchange Group and Thrifty Car & Van Rental.

“We hope that many other businesses will clearly see the value for money benefits of membership and the training and learning opportunities available and then enrol their employees in the various courses and attend our events, whether that be the ICFM’s annual conference or its Masterclasses tackling key fleet decision-maker issues. Investment in ICFM adds credibility and value to businesses and their employees and provides an invaluable network of contacts and benefits,” added ICFM sales director Peter Eldridge.
