Luff is a recipient of Lancer’s Outstanding Safety Award and was named Operator of the Year by LCT Magazine and Limousine Digest. Upon retiring from the daily operations of The Limousine Scene in 2016, Luff joined Chosen Payments as marketing manager and has continued his relationship with Chosen Payments as an account executive and marketing consultant.
