Casteel Named President of the NLA

Posted on April 1, 1996 by LCT staff

Greg Casteel of Prestige Limousines/Carey of Portland in Portland, OR has been named president of the National Limousine Association (NLA).

In accepting the NLA presidency at the recent Limousine & Chauffeur Show in Las Vegas, Casteel emphasized that the NLA must focus on creating alliances. “We use the small investments of our members to create these alliances,” says Casteel.

Casteel stressed the importance of the continued work of the NLA liaison committee and its effort to help local associations with expertise and funding for issues that will affect operators nationwide.

“The NLA will continue to take the lead in resolving issues and creating better business opportunities for its members,” says Casteel. “I would like to see the board work toward closer alliances with other organizations to increase our lobbying power. In recent years we’ve made some good progress with issues such as the independent contractor issue.”

The following are the remaining officers for 1996/97:

Rich Guberti of Excel Limousine Service in Mt. Vernon, Ny, 1st vice president; Marc Kaplan of Catalina Limousine & Transportation Service in Tucson, AZ, 2nd vice president; Marion McCormick of Sterling Limousines Ltd. in Houston, TX, secretary, and George Jacobs of American Limousine in Burr Ridge, IL, treasurer.
