One of the finalists in the LCT Operator of the Year category for 11-30 vehicles category provides us with an industry bright spot
amid a faltering economy and battered transportation sector. The Jacksonville, Fla.-based operator has seen revenues and profits actually increase. We emphasize that amid any general trend, there are plenty of exceptions. LCT has heard from enough operators anecdotally nationwide to conclude there are more than a handful of chauffeured transportation companies experiencing a 1999 business atmosphere instead of the 2009 gloomosphere. Using the right tools, strategies, messages, and innovations often can circumvent or at least hedge against countervailing economic forces. -- M.R.
