LAS VEGAS, Nev. – The LCT Operator of the Year Awards celebrates excellence in the core function of the industry: How to run an outstanding limousine service.

That simple approach has characterized the awards program since it launched in 1990, motivating limo operators worldwide to get some free recognition for hard work, not to mention extra marketing heft.

LCT received an above average number of applications this year, making finalist choices all the more challenging. All non-winning finalists will be automatically re-enrolled in the awards program next year and asked for updates.

Winners are selected by a panel of six judges, who each score each finalist company on a scale of 1-10 in six key areas of operations: Customer service, community/industry involvement, use of technology, media and marketing, chauffeur training, and safety performance. The finalist who gets the most points out of a maximum of 60 becomes the winner in that particular category. All judges rate the finalists independent of each other. Each awards category has from two to four finalists each. Finalists are notified privately ahead of the awards program but not disclosed publicly by LCT Magazine.

The 2015 OOY Award winners were called out March 17 at the LCT Awards Celebration gala and St. Patrick’s Day-themed Emerald Ball during the International LCT Show at the Palazzo Venetian Resort Hotel Casinos:
