Michael Campbell Grace Limousine and Shuttle President & CEO Michael Campbell Manchester, N.H.—Grace Limousine and Shuttle was awarded the 2019 Business Excellence Award by the New Hampshire Travel Council (NHTC) at the Governor’s Council on Tourism. The award recognizes a tourism business characterized by excellent customer service, strong community and charitable involvement, and trailblazing innovation. Founded by Ian Campbell, a disabled American veteran, in 1990, Grace is still family-owned and operated by Ian’s son Michael Campbell as president and CEO. The company is known for its luxurious vehicles, excellent customer service, and strong commitment to community involvement.

At the awards ceremony, NHTC Board Member Terri Wiltse explained that Grace was selected for this honor due to their focus on customer service, civic involvement, and business excellence as well as providing the first and positive impression of New Hampshire to tourists and visitors.

“Grace’s chauffeurs are able to recommend New Hampshire restaurants and activities to their customers, providing a warm welcome to the Granite State,” said Wiltse. “Grace supports the state and its local communities in many meaningful ways. NHSCOT, my organization, has benefited from Grace’s generosity since 1998, with over $150,000 in donated transportation costs to get judges, competitors, athletes, and entertainers to and from Loon Mountain Resort for the New Hampshire Highland Games and Festival. We are very grateful for their longtime support. Other programs and organizations that they support include the Manchester Monarchs, Make-A-Wish New Hampshire, Sponsor-A-Highway, New Hampshire Food Bank, Animal Rescue League of New Hampshire, The Music Hall, Big Brother Big Sister of New Hampshire, Semper Fi Fund, Seacoast Science Center, and many more.”

In addition to the 2019 Business Excellence Award, Grace has received a number of awards, such as Best Car Service 2008 to 2019 from the New Hampshire Business Review’s Best of Business Awards, The Union Leader’s Readers’ Choice Award in Wedding Limousine Category, and the US Small Business Association Family-Owned Business of the Year.

“I am very grateful to NHTC for this tremendous honor,” says Campbell. “Grace has been the chauffeured car service of choice for New Hampshire for nearly three decades, and we are thrilled to contribute positively to the thriving tourism industry in our own state. Recently we have expanded into the motorcoach sector, which will allow us to provide service for tours, events, weddings, and getaways to even larger groups of people visiting New Hampshire.”
