Operator, business owner, community supporter, and LCT contributing editor/writer Jim Luff will bring his 25 years of industry expertise to Driving Results' operator roundtable peer groups.
As Driving Results expands the education and services offered to its industry groups, veteran operator Jim Luff will provide valuable insight from his 25 years of industry experience.

The two owners groups, Spinning Wheels, and the newly created Wheels in Motion, will benefit from the knowledge he brings to the table in the quest to help members successfully grow their businesses to the next level. Members are willing to step outside the box and do things differently.

Jim has always operated outside of the box, getting brand new cars without paying for them, eliminating mandatory gratuities and refusing to wait 60-days for big networks to pay him – without losing their business.

Jim will co-present with Driving Results Managing Partner Arthur Messina at an upcoming affiliate group meeting in Las Vegas immediately following the International LCT Show. All of the groups meet three times a year where they hold discussions on customer service, technology, operations and other industry related challenges. These focus groups are limited to 20 people who are geographically separated from each other and truly desire to grow their business.

Jim Luff is well known in the ground transportation industry as an operator, a contributing editor for LCT Magazine and a consultant to many small operators across the nation. He joined the industry in 1990 as a private chauffeur and in 1993 began a 23-year career as the CEO and managing partner of Limousine Scene in Bakersfield, Calif.

During that time, he grew the business from a four-car operation with eight employees to a 32-vehicle operation with 82 employees. Along the way, Jim picked up accounts like Chevron, Shell Oil, Dole Fresh Fruit and other Fortune 500 companies. He forged partnerships with every local music venue and promoter in the area along with every major hotel, every travel agent and funeral director and more importantly, through civic involvement he made friends with the media, politicians and the business community helping grow the business to a 24/7 household name operation.

Jim has been the recipient of many community awards such as Humanitarian of The Year, Lancer’s Outstanding Safety Award as well as receiving the coveted LCT Operator of the Year Award. He recently retired from the daily operations of the company but remains involved in the company.
