Prior to his current positions as executive director of the Colorado Limousine Association and Florida Limousine Association and industry & brand ambassador for Chauffeur Driven, Jagiela ran his own limousine company for 25 years. He previously served as the long-time president of Philadelphia Regional Limousine Association (PRLA) prior to his role as Executive Director of the National Limousine Association for over two years.

VLA President Paul Walsh said, “As a board member of the VLA for many years, I am excited that our organization has decided to hire an executive director to help with the operational side of our association. We are looking forward to having Philip on the team and utilizing his many formidable talents to help us maintain, grow and improve the VLA at every level.”

“I intend to hit the ground running for the VLA,” said Jagiela. “I have been approached by vendors and operators who want to be part of the growth and reinvigoration of this great association. We will have a number of new opportunities for members to save money on products and services as well as educational opportunities from individuals who are experts in their fields and are willing to share information with our members. It is an exciting time to be a member of the VLA.”

Virginia operators will realize the benefits of their association with the upcoming presidential inauguration. The VLA will be a critical source of information and logistics for its members.
