Marc Sievers started Sacramento-based Universal Limousine and Transportation in 1993 with only two vehicles. Universal grew rapidly, enabling Sievers to open a San Francisco branch in 1997. Over the years, Universal’s commitment to impeccable customer service and safety established its reputation as the chauffeured car service of choice in the Sacramento area. Universal’s fleet of late model coaches, buses, sedans, and limousines grew, and with that growth came the opportunity to contract with numerous clients requiring shuttle and large-group movement assistance. Its client base is composed of Fortune 500 executives and entertainment industry personnel, such as actors and musicians.
Universal’s approach to business development is best described as strategic. Sievers has acquired vehicles and hired chauffeurs who have the School Pupil Activity Bus (SPAB) designation so he can bid for contracts in local municipalities. He maintains long-term relationships with his shuttle contract clients, and these relationships serve as great references when he competes for other contracts in the RFP process. Universal works with local sports teams such as the Sacramento River Cats and the Sacramento Kings, and these partnerships link Universal to the community and raise its visibility. Recently, Marc has also partnered with The LMC Group to enter new markets and cultivate critical business relationships.
LMC Group’s Nicole Olivier, who collaborates with Universal in their business development efforts, said: “Universal Limousine and its owner Marc Sievers have been shining examples of what we can do for a client who is involved and helps steer the direction of business development. They have been responsive to requests for information and proactive on developing key business relationships on their own. We continue to uncover some great business leads due to their active participation in the sales process. Universal, Marc, and his team are the blueprint for successful partnerships going forward.”
