LCT Summit Fast40 Panel: Prepared For Millennial Limo Topics

Posted on May 15, 2015 by

As LCT gets ready to head to the LCT Summit, this Sunday-Tuesday (May 17-19), the LCT Fast40 Group will reconvene for another panel session to discuss how a new generation of limo business is adapting to today's technological, cultural, and political landscapes.

This latest Fast 40 session will feature an all-new panel and will examine how aspects of limousine business that were done in an “old-school” way, can now be adapted with “new-school” technology and techniques. Companies can sharpen marketing efforts by focusing on Millennials as a single demographic, and dig deeper into preferences, lifestyles, and consumer habits, and chauffeured operations can use this data to better sell their services and promote their brands. Panelists will cover social media best practices and explain how operators can attract younger Millennial-age chauffeurs who are qualified for top-level work.


Ryan Hilberth, CEO Of Rental Limo, St. Petersburg, Fla. Hilberth founded Rental Limo in 2012 to help operators increase their online bookings. His new product allows operators to use an intuitive three-step booking process on their own websites.

Rick Versace Jr., director business development A1A Limo, Boca Raton, Fla. Versace Jr. grew up in the industry with his father, Rick Versace Sr., founding A1A in 1986. Versace has a background in finance and recently re-joined the family business as executive.

Raphael Sousa, SF Limo Express, San Francisco, Calif. Sousa founded SF Limo Express in 2010, with a single town car, and has since grown his fleet to 10+ vehicles, and recently added a Sprinter shuttle. He is 25 years old.

Robert Xavier, President of Legend Limousine, Smithtown, New York. Xavier started Legend Limousine in 2003, and has become a premier provider for weddings and corporate travel in the area. Xavier has received a Champion of the Year Award from the Small Business Association in 2010, and is active in his local livery associations.

Stay tuned for more news on the LCT Fast40 session, and if you're attending the LCT Summit, use the official #lctsummit hashtag to post pictures or comments from the event. Looking forward to seeing everyone in Miami.
