Eric Weiner Named Rhode Island Small Business Person of the Year

Posted on May 21, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

PAWTUCKET, R.I. – Eric Weiner, president and CEO of Rhode Island-based All Occasion Transportation, has been named the 2008 Rhode Island Small Business Person of the Year. Weiner was recently honored in Washington, D.C. during the Small Business Administration’s annual event recognizing national small businesses.

All Occasion Transportation’s humble beginnings date back to 1990 when Weiner was a sophomore at Johnson and Wales University in Providence. With just one vehicle, a six-passenger limousine, Weiner was a staff of one, responsible for taking reservations, chauffeuring, vehicle maintenance, and every other task related to operating a small business. Listening to his clientele, Weiner learned early on the need for a professional luxury ground transportation provider catering to corporate travel. Now, more than 18 years later, All Occasion Transportation has grown into a worldwide company offering service in more than 600 cities across the globe. Today, the company specializes in airport transfers, corporate travel, and special occasions. Over the years, limousines have been replaced primarily with luxury sedans to cater to the increasing demands of the business traveler.

“To be recognized by the SBA is quite an honor, one that is a culmination of 18 years of hard work and dedication. My vision has always been to offer unmatched customer service to our clients,” Weiner commented. He added, “I am thrilled to share this award with my team of dedicated professionals who make All Occasion Transportation the company it is today.”
