East Hanover, N.J.—Jason Sharenow, COO of Broadway Elite Chauffeured Services Worldwide, announced the acquisition of Jade Limousine of Fairfield, New Jersey. The acquisition makes Broadway Elite one of the region’s leading full service transportation companies with more than 80 vehicles in service.

Sharenow and Broadway Elite owners Brian and Gary Wecksler will run the company in executive, management, and operational roles while the former Jade owner, Fred Sidaross, will remain on as an advisor during the transition period. “Jade and Broadway Elite have enjoyed a great affiliate relationship for many years,” says Sidaross, “It made total sense to look to a well-run company like Broadway to acquire us.”

“We are very excited about the merger,” says Sharenow. “It allows us to streamline our operations, increase our capacity, and continue to provide outstanding service to our clientele. It is a tremendous challenge to integrate the two companies and cultures into one, but the advantage that we have seen already is that we have talented, experienced people who have come together under the Broadway Elite banner. We are all very excited about growing our new company.”

“Broadway and Jade complement each other,” says Brian Wecksler. “Jade is a 27-year-old company with a very strong client base. The two companies now have the ability to service clients over a 150-mile radius seamlessly.”

Broadway Elite has been providing corporate transportation to the Northern New Jersey market for the past 20 years. The new fleet includes late model executive sedans, vans, mini buses, SUVs, and stretch limousines.

Randolph, Mass.—For Marina Domenici, a bright-eyed and cheery 14-year old with Down Syndrome, her bucket list grew a little shorter last March as she finally got to attend her first Boston Bruins game in rock star-style, compliments of ETS International.

“The screech of excitement was deafening when she looked outside to see the limo pulling up,” says Marina’s mother, Lynn Domenici. Not only did Marina get a limousine ride and enjoy great seats at the March 3rd game, but she also got to meet the Bruins’ mascot, Blades, and take a spin around the ice on the Zamboni. She was even given the opportunity to try on a Stanley Cup Championship ring.ETS websiteMarina Domenici enjoys her day with the Boston Bruins.

“My husband, Brian, was worried she would be too scared to ride the Zamboni,” says Lynn. “But she smiled and waved to all the fans as she circled the ice. That unstoppable smile and enthusiastic wave will be etched in our memories forever.”

John M. Greene, President of ETS International, says they were more than happy to help make one of Marina’s wishes come true, as he has known the family for many years. “Marina just lights up every room she walks into,” says Greene. “You’ll never meet a sweeter girl and just to see the look on her face as she watched the game was a thrill for all of us.”

Adds Marina’s dad, Brian Domenici, who works as a Supervisor in the Ground Transportation Department of FM Global in Providence, R.I., “If you ask Marina about her night in Boston, the top of her list of thrills would be a night out with two great guys, Johnny and his brother, Peter.  She has come to love them both, not because of the limos, hockey games or even Zamboni rides, but because Peter and Johnny treat her like part of their family. For us as parents we are grateful for the extraordinary opportunities that The Greenes and ETS have provided for Marina.”  

ETS’ John Greene says the limo company has had a lot of famous people in their cars over the years, “but Marina tops the list.”
