Presidential Has its Best Revenue Month Ever

Posted on October 8, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

DENVER – Presidential Worldwide Transportation has just completed the biggest month in its history. The Democratic National Convention was the largest convention ever held in the state of Colorado. The company’s revenue for August exceeded a 100+ % over any other August in the company’s 23 year history.

To fulfill the request for ground transportation, Presidential put 70 vehicles on the road and farmed out another 35 vehicles to local companies. Gene Cookenboo, president of Presidential, was impressed with the famous people that rode with them during the convention like Senator Rockefeller, Senator Inouye, Mayor Giuliani, John Gavin, Carl Rove, Richard Dyfuss, and the Mellissa Etheridge Band. The Fortune 500 Companies actually provided the majority of their trips with their executives and guest attending the convention. The media accounted for an extremely large amount of the trips with ATT’s communication staff and ABC News’ employees including Charles Gibson.

The company’s chauffeur trainer, Lou Blackshere, hired, trained, assigned, and monitored 31 extra chauffeurs for this event. The new chauffeurs made up the extra manpower needed for them to succeed with the increase in volume during the convention and their performance was outstanding, the company says. Connie Dominguez, the dispatch supervisor, and Tanza, the reservations supervisor, kept the clients, the bookers, the passengers, and all the employees up to date, and on top of everything including changes for the entire week.
