Operator Named Entrepreneur of the Year

Posted on July 1, 2004 by LCT staff

Randy Hively, owner of A Touch of Class Limousines, won the Entrepreneur of the Year awards by the Entrepreneur Council in Frederick. The limousine company started three years ago with one super-stretch limo and is now Frederick’s largest limousine fleet.

“A large part is simply being in the right place at the right time. But I also have the greatest office staff and chauffeurs, and they are my front lines,” Hively says about being successful. He goes on to add, “Having a local company means more than merely putting out a product and hoping people buy. To me, if you are going to be in business, and you cater to the local market, you should also give back to the community that supports you.”

A Touch of Class Limousines provides free limo rides for six deserving students each Wednesday during the school year as part of the company’s Kids Reward Program. The company also co-sponsors free limousine transportation for An Evening on the Riviera, the community’s premiere annual black-tie affair, and has contributed time and services to such organizations as the Frederick Festival of the Arts, Fredrik County Office of Economic Development, Leadership Frederick County, and numerous charitable organizations.

The company offers a diverse selection of vehicles including 10-, 12- and 14-passenger Town Cars, a vintage Rolls Royce, Suburbans for airport transportation and pro bono service during snowstorms to help the hospital with staff and patients, and the latest edition, a 2004 200-inch Excursion.
