Faeth Limo U L to R: John Murphey of Black Steel Transportation, Jordan Sanders of Hollowsands Luxury Limousine, NLA Board Member Kevin Illingworth of Classique Worldwide Transportation, Mary Onstead of Compass Limousine, Bill Faeth of Limo University, Eric Alimena of Alimena Limousine & Worldwide Transportation, NLA First Vice President Douglas Schwartz of Executive Limousine, Paul Kovie of Sunshine Limousine & Sedan Service, Kirk Bagger of Captains Car Service, and Steven Dial of Your Personal Driver. Marlton, N.J. — The National Limousine Association (NLA) and Chauffeur Driven (CD) are proud to announce an alliance with Limo University founder Bill Faeth, which was approved by the NLA Board of Directors in June. Faeth will work alongside the NLA to develop member-only content specifically geared toward operators with 19 vehicles or less. The exclusive content will be available to NLA members as part of their membership, and is expected to launch this summer. “No Operator Left Behind”—the brainchild of Faeth—is a multi-pronged initiative that aims to arm those small operators with the education and support they need to thrive, while connecting them with larger NLA member operators who have the experience to offer guidance. Faeth’s idea perfectly complements one of NLA President Gary Buffo’s long-term goals to bolster small operators and to make NLA Board members more accessible to the membership.

“Since 2015 when I started Limo University I have had one mission and that is to help small and midsize operators grow profitable businesses. The alliance with the NLA/CD is a natural progression to have a greater impact industrywide,” says Faeth. Content will be delivered through podcasts with a closed Facebook group so that operators can keep the conversation going. Although Faeth and the NLA will initially spearhead topics, Faeth says that he expects many more will be curated through the group conversations. The sessions will become part of an extensive library available to NLA members as long as they are a part of the Association.

Faeth, a former industry operator based in Nashville, has assisted hundreds of dedicated company leaders navigate the changing times and increase profitability since 2015 through his popular Limo University and its various programs. “This partnership and No Operator Left Behind initiative will help our members grow, market, and protect their businesses. This is perhaps the best member benefit the NLA has developed since I became a member in 1996,” says Buffo. To further strengthen the voice of the small operator, he adds that the NLA Board will be tasked with creating a small operator seat on the Board during the next bylaws revision.

Additionally, Faeth will host sessions dedicated to the smaller operators at the upcoming CD/NLA shows, starting this October 13-16 in Boston.
